Well this was not really in the plans for us, so we were not as prepared as I wish that we would have been. We had Chaco sandals which are great even for hiking, but when you are walking up a rocky riverbed it is not the best choice. We saw several people that had rented water shoes and a... More

Came here with a group of friends the day after hiking Angel's landing. We arrived fairly late, around 3 pm all geared up in dry pants, socks, waterproof shoes, a waterproof camera case, and a walking stick. Some of my group members chose to wear a wetsuit. We already knew what we were getting into with the sun going down... More

Amazing experience but go early... Not so much for the heat but for the crowds. The number of people piling in was surprising and most didn't have a the right equipment so couldn't go far or were falling all over the place. We rented equipment from Zion outfitters - water socks, water shoes, sticks and brought dry bags. We packed... More

This is a nice, relatively quick and easy walk from the parking lot/ shuttle stop to the end of the infamous Narrows (most hike down the Narrows so this would be the end). Beautiful scenery. Make certain you check on the flash flood warnings and heed them! before you walk. When you reach the end of the trail, you can... More

We love this hike! We go to Zion every year in June and it is already starting to heat up, so this hike is perfect because it keeps you cool as you are hiking in the water. Don't expect to move quickly because you will move very slowly in the water, and take lots of snacks if you have children... More

This a must do. To be able to hike up the river and see how the canyons were formed is awesome. As you proceed you will be in awe when looking up. However, Be prepared with watershoes and walking sticks. Also, flash flood can happen.

This hike was on my bucket list and I'm glad I took care of that! We rented shoes and wet suits from Zion Adventure Co which provided us broom handle like hiking sticks too. The river is your trail. Wearing thoserotected water shoes was very helpful because the riverbed was covered with lots of sharp edged rocks. On our way... More

The multitude of flash flood warnings tried to put us off. Fortunately we went anyway...This hike was awesome, wet, cold, fun, challenging for the small kids who initially didnt want to get wet and by the end were begging to stay. Tip: we used our water shoes with thick heels that u may use to walk a pebbly beach.....we found... More

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
