Likely In-Season!
Overview: This is a sandy trail which runs alongside the west side of the virgin river between zion lodge and the court of the patriarchs. It appears to be the main route of the horse rides they give in the park. It doesn't have good views of the river and smells quite a bit of horses. Watch for landmines. I didn't do the extra 1.2 mile loop in which you climb a few hundred feet up to a bluff on the west side above the river. Frankly this should be considered a trail for horses only as it isn't an enjoyable hike. You need a permit for each vehicle entering Zion national park. Once in the park, a free shuttle is run in the summer from the visitor center.
