Got a campsite reservation along with a permit for the narrows. I got campsite #7. It was at a bend in the river with high canyon walls on one side. I had a shuttle take me from Springdale to the Chamberlain Ranch trailhead(the usual start for overnight hikers). The entire hike was about 16 miles, and ends at the Temple... More

Hiking the Narrows is amazing and something I think people of all ages can enjoy and experience. Old or young, even adventuring just a little bit up stream should be doable and enjoyable for anybody. As far as equipment, at any time of the year we would recommend renting water shoes. The rocks on the bottom are rounded and very... More

This is a hike you'll never forget. Five sixty-somethings did this with no problem. I would suggest you rent shoes as the footing is slippery. I would advise against open-toed sandals. A staff is also very helpful. We went in October. The river was cool but not uncomfortable.

This place is amazing. Jaw dropping scenery, lovely views and just an amazing place to be. Utah houses some lovely places but this is up there with the best. Great hiking trails but not really appropriate for young children. A must see place!

Be prepared to walk upstream in cool, rushing water. It can be crowded in the summer but well worth the time.

This was our first visit to Zion National park. We spent 2 days here. Parking can be very difficult if you don't get here first thing in the morning. It was a very cold January morning so we didn't enjoy the hike as much as if it was a nicer day. The walk is about a mile from the parking... More

It was a mere 25 degrees in January and had just recently snowed but we were convinced by these reviews that winter conditions do not need to hinder you from enjoying this natural wonderland. You will stay warm and dry, (rent your gear from the Zion Adventure Co without a doubt!) and not have to worry about easily traversing the... More

We spent two days in Zion during the week of Thanksgiving - generally one day doing Angels Landing and a couple of other trails, and the next day doing the Narrows before leaving. As great as Angels Landing is, the five of us all agreed if we only had one day to go back we would do the Narrows, just... More

I'm one of the those who enjoy perusing travel sites and decided that I must do the Narrows! And it did not disappoint even when I have seen so many amazing photos of it on the internet. Doing the trip over winter is definitely better (granted you rent proper suit and gears) because there was practically no one around when... More
