This is a must do for Zion National Park. If you can plan in advance, obtain a pass and hike from the top down. It requires arranging for transportation and more planning but is very much worth it. If you can only hike from the bottom up and back it is still a great hike.

Great place to hike easy trail to get up to narrows. You can either hike along the river bank or through the paved walkway to the entrance of The Narrows. (Water was cold this time of year)

This is one of the easiest and a very attractive hike it offers a variety of scenery and offers a lot of photo opportunities. You also soak your feet in the river this is probably the busiest hike in the park so it can be crowded but if you are limited on time I would still recommend this!!

The Narrows can get very busy late morning/early afternoon. So head out at sunrise and half of your hike will be peaceful. Wear proper shoes. I don't think water shoes they rent in the park are necessary, but non-leather shoes or boot with a good sole are a must. Walking stick or long walking pole is also necessary. Yes, the... More

We did a half day hike up the narrows up through Wall Street. We did the hike in November and while it was cold, it was completely manageable with the right gear. We hiked up to Wall Street and then back through a side canyon and went as far as we could until we got up to our hips. For... More

Hiked about 3 miles upriver from the parking lot yesterday, plus explored the side canyon until the pools got a bit too deep for my comfort. Once past the initial open part of the canyon, saw less than a dozen people out in the river during about 4.5 hours. What!?!? I'm told that there are thousands of people out there... More

Even if you can't spend more than 4 hours, go in for 2.5 hours and turn around and hustle back. you've GOTTA see this place! Here's eveything you need to know! Including rental gear below How hard is it? Anyone can do this. I'm adventurous, but not an extreme athlete as far as being in shape goes. On a scale... More

The narrows hike is a "MUST SEE" when trekking through Zion. The canyon walls collide with the turquoise blue water in a way that no picture or painting can justly depict. Why wouldn't you want to be submersed in this natural eden? Our day in July was spent hiking about 15 miles of the river until we were to cold... More

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
