Walked the Narrows with 13 other people ages 10 to 54 years old - August 10th. No need for special shoes during this summer. We got there very early and used the walking sticks at the end of the path. There are dozens of walking sticks there but must get there early. We started our walk at around 7h30. YOU... More

Trekked first 3 miles or so and back today (26th aug). We were concerned reading up on the scare mongering about shoes and decided to do the river side walk to the wet bit in our hiking boots and then change to a pair of light canvas slip ons with merino hiking socks for me and some $3 Walmart water...

My husband & I came early to Zion National Park from our stay in Vegas. The drive was smooth. We took a stop at St. George before continuing to Zion National Park. We arrived at the visitor's center where they had all the information. We planned on doing the Narrows river hike the bottom up so no permit required. Just... More

Went on this adventure with my husband and my 13 year old. It was the highlight of our trip! It was amazing and fun to trek down the Narrows in the water. I would recommend a walking stick and shoes that you don't mind getting wet. Our hike was about 5 hours but we could have gone further. The surroundings... More

It was a very pleasant and impressive easy - to - moderate hike into The Narrows. We loved it all! We was wearing comfy hike-sandals and we had no problems with it (sandals are not recommended by Rangers). If you are walking carfully & cautiously, hike-sandals (like Merrel) are perfect.

We traveled part of the Narrows with our 10- and 12-year-old kids, and we all felt it was a great, unusual hike. The Riverwalk trail to the opening of the Narrows is tiresome (crowded, uneventful), but short. Once at the river, we walked about 50 minutes before turning around. After about 30 minutes the crowds thinned and there were some... More

One of four trails rated strenuous in Zion, the Narrows follows the Virgin River gorge with 1500 foot walls. You take the shuttle to the end, walk a paved path a mile to the river, then can walk all day up the Virgin River and its tributary. I can't over- recommend getting river gear (neoprene socks, river shoes and a... More

This was probably one of the prettiest hikes. I took my family who I have a 8 yr old and a 13 yr old. The hike suited them both fine as far as capabilities and entertainment value may be a concern. Be prepared to step on rocks and boulders throughout the whole experience in a small /med moving stream as... More
