Took my family here last September 2014 for Labor Day weekend. The best part of living in Southern California, we can do road trip to Arizona and Utah with Las Vegas being the midway point. The drive from Las Vegas to Zion is about 4 hours drive. The park itself was so pretty with the rock formation. I read a... More

I have only walked up to the part you have to cross the creek. Most people were with the tour group and it looks like they were wearing special boots and outfits to protect themselves from water. It's a family friendly hike if you want to just hike one mile and back.

Definitely get the gear, we got ours from Zion adventure center which was right across from our RV park. The hike is moderate to strenuous and I do not advise it if you have back issues or ankle/knee issues. The gear made us able to enjoy it even though the water was only 46 degrees! The views are beautiful.

We did this in April 2015. The water this year was very low so it allowed us to do this hike. Check the USGS website for flow rates on the Virgin River. Most of the places that rent gear for you have links on their website. When we went the CFS (cubic feet per sec) flow rate was 49. I... More

Awe inspiring! So unique & beautiful. The correct gear is very helpful. Water shoes, neoprene socks, water proof bibs & most importantly a good walking stick. We rented all these items from Zion Adventure. We also rented a water proof backpack for our things. Thank goodness, otherwise I would never have made it. Bring water and snacks, because it took...

Try and do this hike during the low water season as you can hike up to your neck in water it was pretty cool. Rocks walks shooting straight up for 300ft as you hike swim along the river bed. Truly amazing.

Zion is a magical place, and the Narrows is a special place within Zion. After renting our dry gear for our hike, we set off to go as far as we wanted. Definitely recommend a dry pack and renting the right gear if it's cold. Very quickly the busyness of the park slips away and the tranquility of this unique... More

Definitely a highlight of our trip. The river was cold (45 degrees) so we had to pay to rent gear, but it was totally worth it. A must do!!

you must make a reservation 3 months in advance if you want to go all the way through this hike.WE went up until you have to go through the water on this hike. The water is about 40 degrees so we opted to not go any further. You can rent the water wear to make it through this hike.

This is a wonderful hike. Rent some gear at the companies right outside of the park and don't put in your bear until you get to the final bus stop as the gear is just too hot. But the. Get on your gear and hike into the canyon and through the rive. What a great hike! Completely worth it!
