We hiked Orderville canyon from the top down. Most economical way is to drop a car at the narrows parking lot, or if the shuttles are running, then at the Zions Canyon visitors center. There are good directions online so won't go into the details. If you can get someone to drop you off at the trailhead that's even better.... More

It's my understanding that you can get to Orderville Canyon by hiking up The Narrows in Zion National Park. We hiked in some other way with a guide. The views are stunning. Don't visit Zion without seeing a real slot canyon. It's worth the effort. And bring a waterproof camera. You'll want to photograph your accomplishment!

The Orderville Canyon hike is the best kept secret in Zion National Park. The Virgin Narrows hike is long and tedious. The Subway is a great hike but overly popular and difficult to get reserved. Orderville on the other hand has great slot canyon aspects as well as the Virgin River section added at the end. A wonderful hike for... More

Orderville Canyon is puts the adventure into The Narrows. Our group of 6 adults and 7 teens climbed over 3 waterfalls, waded through water a bit higher than our waists, and balanced over fallen tree bridges to get to "big waterfall" about a mile upstream with a deep pool below for swimming. Most are intimidated by the first waterfall about... More

Our unruly, uncooperative kids really bonded over this side trip off the Narrows. We spent an hour going into Orderville Canyon from where it branches off from the Wall Street section of the Narrows, which can be crowded. We got as far as the waterfall. We heard going beyond it made for a challenging return, and it was getting late,... More

We chose to do Orderville beacuse we are hike and it was our first contact with canyoneering. We booked a permit on-line about two months before our trip on the park's site. We picked it up a day before a hike and we also schedule shuttle. We used a Zion Adventure Company (after we found out they are a little... More

Orderville is a side canyon off the narrows. Orderville is narrow and interesting. I went part way up Orderville, next time I visit I will do the whole thing.

My husband and two friends just did this canyon yesterday. They rented equipment from Zion Adventure Company - harness, canyoneer shoes and neoprene socks - and also paid for shuttle service from their company up to the Trail Head which was $24 per person. They also had to go early in the morning (7am) prior to their shuttle pick up... More

Loved the close, best kept secret slot canyon near Orderville (not the canyon to the Zion Narrows); a rope would have been handy, but we loved it as far as we got.
