Zion offers a shuttle to the entrance of the Narrows which allowed us to enjoy the sights. Once we arrived there is a restroom facility and a Park Ranger. We wore closed toed shoes and shorts and carried a small backpack with snacks and water for the hike -- a walking stick is also a great plus for balancing when... More

We rented the water shoes and walking sticks from Zion Adventure Company. I think that is important to do. Not only to maximize your potential, but to learn more about the venture you are going on. They will educate you with helpful info, a video and some Q&A. This was the highlight of my 21 day road trip. I was... More

Hiking The Narrows is a very satisfying experience. The Narrows starts at the end of the River Walk. You can hike for a short distance such as 1/2 mile, or go all the way to the end for a total of 16 miles. Be sure to bring some water and a walking stick. Having a walking stick should help you...

It's hot, hard and you must be willing to sacrifice a pair of old sneakers, but taking the walk into the Narrows is great.

This is a very easy hike which is overrated. It's just the same view the whole time. Save your time for Observation Point or Angels Landing.

The Narrows was a great family venture. Great views, kept cool when hiking in the water, and it was fun. Wear an old pair of tennis shoes (or any closed toe shoe) and we used some old ski poles for walking sticks. People who were wearing sandals and had no walking sticks/ski poles/walking poles struggled the most. The pole made... More

This is a hike of a different kind but you have to be careful not to injure yourself. The water has been muddy as of mid of July 2015 so visibility inside the river is poor and there are larger round stones at the river bed which will make you lose the balance. Closed toe shoes and hiking poles are... More

This hike is a bit tricky, as, even in the summertime, it requires hiking through the river. This means dealing with both the (sometimes) swift-flowing water as well as the rocky river bottom. It is an effort that pays off with amazing scenery as the canyon walls stretch up high on both sides. I did a portion of this hike... More

I LOVE this place. I have been going to Zions for over 20 years and still see new things and fall in love with it more every time. The Narrows is a place like no other. It's a short walk (about 30-40 mins) at a slow / medium pace with kids and youth to get to the mouth of the... More
