By the River. In Paiute, Pa' rus means "by the river." This single word aptly describes this trail, which follows the Virgin River with a wide, well-paved path, accentuated by some very attractive bridges that take you back and forth across the river. The Pa'rus is the easiest stroll in the Park, and the only trail that allows dogs (on a leash) and bicycles. It connects the Visitor Center with South Campground and Canyon Junction, providing easy access to a morning or evening stroll from either campground.
