After your visit to Zion Adventure Company for your river shoes, hiking staff and the river safety briefing take the Park Shuttle to the last stop which is the Riverwalk.  The broad sidewalk parallels the river for nearly a mile.  There you can don your river gear before descending several stone steps to the smooth river rock shore.  You may feel overdressed with your rented gear and daypack as you see people going up river wearing tennis shoes, flip flops or barefoot carrying small children with no supplies.  A mile up stream you will see few of these and you will value your river shoes and staff. 

Your experience gets better and better
as you add the miles.  3 miles up is a good experience, 5 miles up is even better!  Go as far as you like.  Take a break on a sand bar for lunch.  Try your best to capture the majesty and the magic of this unique place on your camera.  It will take a poster size print to do this justice!
