Took the family through the Narrows and it is a MUST! Id HIGHLY recommend renting the gear (canyoneering boots, water proof dry suits and booties) if you want to get way into the Narrows. It was truly some of the most amazing scenery I have ever seen! If you go way in it is a tough trek with a 10... More

Our family hiked up the narrows for about a mile during the mid morning and early afternoon. The water was very cold, but the fun of exploring the slot canyon and splashing in the water made it worth it. We are excited to return in the summer and go further up the canyon.

We did the Narrows "hike" today and are so glad we did. We talked to some people who had done it yesterday, and we took their advice and rented dry suits (bibs), shoes and walking sticks. ($41/person at Zion Outfitters, just outside the park entrance in Springdale). That made the hike so enjoyable. Our feet did get wet, but our... More

Probably my favorite hike thus far! It's different from the usual hikes I do where one would hike up a mountain to get a great view. The scenery here is very surreal with it's towering canyon walls on both sides. Water was definitely freezing, I was worried that my party would chicken out and turn back but they were troopers!...

Rented some wetsuit pants and boots, which was a good idea. Feet would have been frozen solid in the first 5 minutes otherwise. Got there at 9am on a day when the weather was predictedto be blah, and had the canyon to ourselves for 2 hours. Great hike, incredible scenery.

The best time to hike The Narrows is either late summer through mid-autumn. The water level is at its lowest and temps aren't too cold. As a result, you may not need dry pants but you'll want to wear canyoneering boots with neoprene socks. A trekking pole or long wooden staff is also recommended to help keep upright as you... More

My teens loved this hike. During Spring break make sure that you get the dry suits and shoes from zionadventures.com. Great customer service.

We did the Narrows in mid-March and though it was cold, dressing properly kept us warm and comfortable. In early spring before the runoff, the water was clear so we could easily spot the deep pools and easiest crossings. We encountered knee-deep water. Many others have said this, so I'll keep it brief. If the Narrows is open, do it.... More

We walked the river trail for about a mile until it ended. It was a cool March morning so we did not enter the water. The trail is beautiful and you can feel the walls getting closer every 100 yards. The trail starts at the parking area at the end of the road. Basically when you can not drive any... More
