You cant go to zion without doing this! You will be in water the ENTIRE time, it is possible to do barefoot but not fun or easy. Wear shoes of some sort, walking sticks will help but not necessary. Stunning scenery! It will take a longgg time to reach the back and where the slot canyon gets really narrow. If... More

This was my first time hiking in the river. I read a previous review where a person used a broom handle as a walking stick. So I brought along a rake handle for under $5 from Lowes (call me "el cheapo"). However, I still fell in the river with a stick because the rocks underneath are slippery. The kids were... More

Unforgettable experience, doing a top down overnight hike is really worth the effort. You get to see all the beauty of the canyon without tourist crowds for the first day and part of the second day. It isn't for easy however, walking on the slippery rocks in the water is a bit harder then a simple hike.

It was fun to walk through the river. You need to be careful and if you are a little off balance the walking sticks looked to help a lot of hikers. It is a popular hike but you don't feel cramped by many hikers. Everyone is just taking it at their own pace. You will get wet and I recommend... More

The best walk on our entire vacation! This was a bit scary to think about, but once we decided to do it, I was so glad we did. Walking through a moving river with two kids was not what a good parent should do! However, I can't explain how much fun we had. We rented the appropriate footwear and used... More

Awesome!!! Favorite hike of 4 national parks! Rented basic package of neoprene socks, water shoes and sticks and so glad we did. Kept our feet warm and had good traction on the rocks. Did our hike from 9-1 and much less crowded going in then coming out. Much easier to maneuver and enjoy in the am. Too crowded by midday.... More

If I can do it you can too! I had a 2 year old on my back in a pack, a video camera, regular camera, a pack of snacks, and extra clothes. It helped that I had a walking stick. Everyone did fine with all the variety of shoes/barefeet/special footing that they used to walk the watery/rocky trail. I lost... More

The people we saw coming out of the Narrows were wearing full wet suits. Per the ranger, the water is 58 degrees ranging in depth from mid-calf to mid thigh with the occasional drops where you have to swim. Not for us!. Do the Riverside Trail instead!

This hike is IN a river. We did it in hiking boots. Our feet were soaked. That sounds much worse than it turns out to be. I thought I would get blisters, but I walked around for 3 more hours, before finally going back to the visitors center where our car was and changing into sneakers.

If you are at all fit, I would say that this hike is not to be missed. We hiked from the bottoms up, meaning that we started at the Riverwalk and hiked to Wall Street. We rented the boots, dry pants and socks from Zion Rock--well worth the money because the boots keep you from slipping on the rocks and... More
