Our family of 4 with kids 9 and 7 did this hike in early August. We did the bottom up to Orderville and back. We were lucky to be able to do this hike. I think hiking the Narrows is more weather dependent than doing Angel’s Landing. In August there is the chance of flash flood that would prevent the... More

This is great fun for individuals or families alike. Its a walk down a slot canyon that involves traversing regularly through or across the Virgin River running through it. Water depth went up to mid-thigh in summer (its cool, but not too cold) but you do need appropriate footwear (hiking boots or trainers you're prepared to get very wet, or... More

This is a wonderful hike for all ages. You have to first walk a mile on a paved path to get to the Narrows, which is where the fun starts. You basically walk through the stream the whole hike. The water is cold, but pleasant in the summer. We were not fully prepared and next time we will make sure... More

Rent the water shoes and pants. I can't think of the specific name. My husband and I went last year and decided to walk the narrows in the freezing water. After about 15 minutes we were thinking of ways to light our socks on fire to warm up our feet for a few seconds. (haha, but seriously thought it). This... More

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
