So I went on this trail last summer and it was a lot of fun but it was hard we did not go to the end of the trail because we where tired and wet. In some places it is very deep where you can't touch the ground but if u don't want to swim threw there are paths to... More

Best time to go? Off season - avoid the crowd and you get clean photo shots. Of course off season means colder water temp, but that's easily taken care of with rented dry pants, neoprene socks and canyoneering shoes. We rented ours from Zion Adventure Co. just outside the park. We hiked 2.5 miles to the end of Wall Street.... More

Being there in April with a younger child we didn't plan on walking up the river. We loved the walk to the end of Narrows Trail and were happy to stop there. It was gorgeous, looked like more of the same upstream, and seeing people going in and out with all the rented pants and gear would have been way... More

It was on my bucket list! I am thrilled to check it off! They warned of flash floods, but I took the chance and I am glad that I did.

I've twice hiked up the narrows - a couple miles the first time, only a mile or so this time. It is one of my all time favorite hikes. Next visit, I will do the whole thing. I refuse to use the fancy pants or waders, I am there to earn every step and immerse myself in nature, even if... More

You will be best served by studying what it takes to hike The Narrows. Without any planning, you can still enjoy it though. We heard all about the 16-hike downstream through chest deep icy water and that sounded a bit much for our family. When we arrived, we decided to just take a look at the Narrows by walking the...

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
