What an amazing experience hiking the narrows. We aren't an outdoorsy family but this hike was well within our wheelhouse. Definitely start I'm the morning when it is less crowded and get the socks, shoes (although my wife and I wore Keens and we're fine) and hiking stick from one of the local outfitters in Springdale. They made it a... More

Fun and worth your time. I have been coming to Zion for years and never took the time until this year. We went on an early July morning--go in the morning before the heat. It is also less crowded in the early hours. You MUST wear hiking or walking shoes and bring a walking stick too. Even with these items... More

Wonderful, but can be strenuous if you plan to do most or all of the trail. Very crowded and noisy in the afternoon so we came back early the next morning. Unlike most any other hike you will ever do. We were here in August so while the water was cold we did not feel the need for the neoprene... More

This is one of those unique unforgettable experience: walk up a river surrounded by a canyon. If you are in Zion this trail has to be done. I read a bunch reviews before I went and this is my takeaway: (i) No need of special shoes, but do go with an old sneakers that you don´t care if it gets... More

This is a nice trail that is fun for everyone, including kids. It's beautiful and the trail ends at the mouth of the Narrows, where the kids can play at the river and climb the rocks. Everyone visiting Zion should go on this trail. It was the most crowded trail we went on, but well worth it!

This was a great experience but please go prepared with proper shoes/poles etc so that you can do as much as you are physically able too. At many points along the trail I was mid-thigh in water ( I am 5'5" tall). When we were finishing I saw some tourists arriving in long skirts and flip flops who clearly would... More

We did this hike with our family of 5 and another family. Definitely rent the proper shoes, and a walking stick from one of the outfitters near the entrance to the park. We rented from Zion Adventures and they were great. We saw a few people hobbling around injured from wearing flip flops or tennis shoes. The bottom is extremely... More

I did the bottom-up hike up to Wall Street in early July 2014. As many readers have commented, it pays to start early. I was at the Zion Adventure Company by 9 am. Had to watch a video regarding flash flooding (this risk is serious, the day I hiked, there was a 30% chance of flooding), rented my shoes, socks... More

I have been longing to at least try or start the narrows trail ever since my first visit to the park 10yrs ago. This time around I didn't have the time or equipment to properly trek the trail but I decided that I had to at least do the first mile or so. Now I am even more enticed to... More
