We only did a short version of the narrows and turned back as it was getting late, but what we did see was very beautiful and we wish we just had more time to get more in, unfortunately we only had 2 days and there is lots of things to see and do in the park

This was a great opportunity to see magnificent canyon views but not without some effort to gear up in the drysuits and canyoneering boots, and choose each step in 46 degree water whooshing against you while you are struggling to find your footing in an underwater boulder field. But, it was a once in a lifetime experience.

We hiked the narrow through the river in Jun up to the Springs. Make sure you are equipped and have good shoes to hike inside the river and on the small and big gravels. Watch your footsteps and be careful not to twist your ankle. You may need yo swim for some short stretches. I put multiple trash bags inside... More

This was our first hike in Zion and looking back it's our favorite. Now let me start off by saying that if you're not sure you can do it, trust me you can. If I can do it so can you (of course as long as you're well and don't have any health issues then it would be best to... More

Zion narrows is a must do! The best part about this trail is it can be done by anyone of any fitness level. The experience of wading through the Virgin river waters and staring at the towering red sandstone walls on either side is something you can rarely have. It's adventurous and spectacular. If you go to Zion, it is... More

We did not have the experience to hike the actual narrows but we did do the paved walk to the beginning of the Narrows. It is a peaceful, easy walk along the river. We saw lots of deer in the evening and were amazed at the canyon walls. There were many people coming out of the Narrows, they looked tired... More

We hiked The Narrows in August 2014. This is hands down our best family experience. We have 3 girls, ages 13, 13, and 10. The BEST advice we received we from reading Trip Advisor the night before. It said to get there EARLY. How magical it was to have the entire canyon to ourselves. I will be forever grateful to... More

This trail can be as long or as short as you would like. We rented special shoes/socks, dry suits and walking sticks because we wanted to go as far as we can and was advised that water could reach waist high and water temperature was at 43 degrees. We saw many hikers in regular shorts and shoes/sandals but their extremities... More

cold water in March so I used suits, boots from rental company, well worth it. Hike is simply spectacular that changes as you walk and as the sun moves. Take a snack and enjoy, just dress correctly for the season.

Just do it!! I saw pictures of the Narrows at a travel show about five years ago and always wanted to do this but never thought I could get it all together. On a trip last summer, we were driving cross country from LA and after an overnight stop in Las Vegas, we spent two days at Zion National Park... More
