We hiked the whole enchilada in one day. We hired a car to take us to the trailhead as the road is very bumpy. You get there early, AND YOU NEED ALL DAY TO HIKE THIS. It's not something you can rush due to the rocky terrain. Each step can be treacherous, especially when you're walking in the water and... More

Boy would it be nice to have the place to yourself. But, in the summer thats not happening. Anyhow, a awesome place and hike up the river. But man were there people everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE. I'll try and visit again during the offseason, and maybe hike further into the narrows. The farther you go the less people there... More

I went to The Narrows in July '13 and July '14. Last year I walked the Narrows from the Temple of Sinawava to Big Springs which was about a 10 mile r/t hike, which took about 7 to 8 hours to walk. I strongly recommend you do it, it was a blast and perfect time of year the water was... More

I went to the Zion National Park with friends for Thanksgiving 2014. We had already kept narrows in our list of places to hike. We started around noon - hiked a couple of miles and were back to the starting point by five. This was with all the stop and look photography.The water is waist high in some places and... More

Take the shuttle and go as early as you can. Once you get an hour down the river the numbers thin out and we often didn't see anyone for 30 minutes at a time.. it never felt like there were too many people around. We hired the socks, boots and pole from the Zion Adventure Co and do not think... More

Definitely a great hike. You should absolutely make this hike a priority when visiting Zion. I stayed in Zion for 2 days last weekend and this was the first hike we did. I have never done anything like this before and it was awesome . I rented a dry suit from Zion Adventure Company which was a necessity due to... More

Expect to get wet. You should consider a change of socks and shoes. You can hike for hours but remember you still have to hike out!

Amazing tall canyon walls. The water was perfect at the end of June. We did top down, staying one night in the canyon. Good river shoes are a must. I got horrible blisters. Luckily I am pretty tough compared to most. If you are going with people who are complainers, it may be too much of a trek for many.... More

Our plan was to walk up to the entrance of The Narrows, take a look and think about hiking it the following day. However, the weather was gorgeous and it looked like fun, so off we went. We could have been better prepared! We did have our trekking poles, which made it much better, and plenty of water and snacks.... More
