I preferred Angels Landing, but this was a close second. Much easier physically and more kid friendly. It will cost you $40 to hire dry pants and boots from the adventure stores in Springdale if you are doing this in the colder months, from November onwards. You will not see anything worthwhile just walking up the paved section. You have... More

Hiked to the end of the paved trail and continued up the river for a half mile. In November the water is very cold, so you might want to be more prepared than we were. After a few hundred yards, there isn't anywhere to get out of the water to warm you feet. In the summer, this should not be... More

Ok, maybe it's a tie between this and the Inca Trail, but they are two totally different experiences. I typically hike the Narrows at least three times a year and every time it is different. Water levels/speed fluctuate from day to day and storms definitely alter the rocks and trail features along the way. If it's your first time, while... More

Hiked about 2 miles into the narrows in Zion National Park. The walk in the water was about 35 degrees we needed a wet suit. Water levels were just below my waist and at the deepest part it felt like a massage. The views and the lighting in the canyon were amazing and well worth the walk in the water.... More

Hiking the Narrows has been a bucket list item since the first time I visited Zion National Park in 1995! This review covers starting at the Riverside Walk and hiking up the River. In October, the water temperature was 52 degrees and the water was flowing swiftly. The decision to rent dry socks, shoes, pants and hiking stick for $40... More

We went to Zion Adventure Company and rented some gear. Arrived at The Narrows and started walking. The area is beautiful beyond belief! We walked our way through the water and over rocks. The river was not flowing that fast and it was not deep in most parts. I think it was to my waist at one point and I'm... More

Where shoes and clothes that can get wet. Need a hiking stick, there are several sticks people leave leaning against hill at beginning of hike if you don't own one.

First, before you attempt this, be sure to visit the visitors' center to check for flood warnings. Second, get there as early as possible to beat the crowds, otherwise your enjoyment and photo opportunities will be far less plentiful. Third, make sure and bring a good walking stick with closed-toe water shoes. There will be plenty of times where you... More

The first part of the trail follows the Virgin River and is paved, enabling access to all including strollers, wheelchairs etc. The knock-on is that it's quite busy, although on the day we went late afternoon in October, it was still very pleasant and beautiful in the fall. We went as far as the paved trail finished and then retraced... More

What a fantastic and different hiking experience. You will be walking in water, some ankle high, some chest high, most of the hike. We did the Narrows in the afternoon after Angel's Landing in the morning, which was a little crazy. For that reason, we didn't go all the way and turned around at Orderville. Next trip we will definitely... More
