The Riverside walk up to the Narrows entrance is very pretty along the river. Most of this hike was in the shade so it's cooler. We were here in mid October so the water was 52 degrees. We only had water sandals so the cold water actually starts to hurt your feet, so we didn't' go very far into the... More

I used two walking sticks, but my son and husband each used one. We went mid-October and rented the shoes, sticks, neoprene socks and the dry pants. We weren't cold at all, so felt it was worth it to rent everything. This hike makes for a long day. I would make it the first (and probably only) hike of the... More

Try to leave early in the morning. We found the little trail and I cannot think of the name of it to be just as and at some points even more beautiful than the narrows. It was an experience we will never forget. If you go in cooler weather I recommend you rent the water pants. The shoes really helped... More

I saw no point in renting socks and shoes and hiking upstream when there are so many canyons in SW Utah, but I am so glad we did it! There were quite a few people, but you're not all in the same place. (It can be pretty funny watching them, too.) We got in the water about noon (Sept 23)... More

When we visited here 6 years ago we did not walk in the river. This time we did. We only went about a mile, but it was truly amazing. We did not rent the boots. Had we done so we probably would have walked further. We did not rent a stick either. There were many home made ones leaning against... More

If you decide to hike the Narrows, go to the Zion Adventure Company! For $22 they gave you a neoprene sock, sturdy shoes and a hiking stick for the entire day. Believe me when I say it's worth every penny! The water was cold and we hiked 4 miles in water that at times was thigh high. The sock and... More

We went 4 miles in. Just amazing. You will get wet, but the socks and shoes we rented made us really comfortable. We went all the way through wall street and it never got past thigh high for me. My photos were amazing. Be sure to make it back in time for the last bus.

This is one of the most incredible hikes you can do, if not only for the huge adrenaline rush you get hearing what seems to be a thunder clap, the sound of impending doom. The hike is reasonably long for a day hike, but without a doubt doable. Bring plenty of water and sun protection. The three mile section, where... More

I almost lost my wife there. She wanted to walk down to the narrows but did not have the footwear for the jaunt. We got back thanks to 2 dutchmen and one canadian pushing me in the wheelchair. But it was worth it.

This is a fantastic MUST DO hike. The scenery is fantastic and this is a very unique hike done in a gentle stream. Highly recommended for the adventurer type.
