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

Start early if you want to do the Zion NP "Narrows" bottom-up day-hike. We were at the Adventure Outfitters at 7:45 (opens at 8 am), in the park and on the shuttle by 8:30 and at the start of the 1 mile paved approach by around 9 a.m. (Getting the neoprene socks/boots at Zion Adventures, btw, well worth it.) This... More

We hiked the trail with 2 grandparents in their late 60's, parents in their 40's and children from 6-14. We all loved it. We rode the shuttle from the Welcome Center which is a 40 minute bus ride, you then walk about l mile on a very good path which takes about 20 minutes and then you are at the... More

The Narrows Trail is an amazing way to hike in 100 degree weather. You hike trough a cool river miles upstream while the surrounding cliffs narrow to about 8 feet around you. A must do in Zions!

Having climbed Angels Landing the same morning we took to the Virgin River after lunch - ill-prepared (no walking poles which are absolutely essential) to see what The Narrows was all about. Everyone we talked to as we waded along said the same thing - It's impossible to turn around because you just HAVE to know what's around the next... More

This is such a unique, stunning hike surrounded by steep, mesmerising canyon walls. One of the most beautiful locations I've ever hiked through. Hiking through the river adds another dimension to the hike - it can be a bit slippery at times so make sure you get so good footwear (we hired waterproof boots and wading trousers from the rental...

Incredible hike in the bed of a river that has towering canyon walls on both sides. This hike can be done to whatever length you desire, as very few complete the hike from top to bottom. There are generally crowds of people for the first 2 or 3 miles, but afterwards, it is a lot more peaceful and there are... More
