You may have heard of Zion’s most famous hike, Angel’s Landing, a death-defying trail that winds over a narrow ridge to a precipitous, vertigo-inducing summit. This five-and-a-half-mile hike is certainly not for young children (physically fit teens who are not afraid of heights may be able to handle Angel’s Landing), but there are plenty of other trails in the park that are well-suited to families. The Emerald Pools trails (Lower, Upper and Middle Emerald Pools) are very popular hikes for families; they lead hikers to serene ponds and cliff-side waterfalls. Another noteworthy trail for families is Riverside Wail, which winds alongside the pretty Virgin River. Stop by the Visitor Center to get a trail map and more information about hiking in the park.
