: Ashley and I enjoyed our hike on the Pa'rus Trail as it was recommended as a great sunset hike, by a park ranger. We saw other hikers while out on the Pa'rus Trail as well as many photographers looking to capture that spectacular shot of sunset in Zion National Park. There is a relaxing atmosphere to the hike on the Pa'rus Trail as it follows alongside the Virgin River for a majority of the hike. Additionally, you can get excellent photographs of Watchman Mountain in Zion National Park while Hiking on the Pa'rus trail. This trail is suitable for bicycles as well, so there is a chance you will also see bicyclists while on this trail.
Zion National Park. We stayed at the Zion Lodge which we also highly recommend to visitors looking to spend quality time at Zion National Park. Zion Lodge is located along Zion Canyon Scenic Drive (Floor of the Valley Road) in the heart of Zion Canyon.
