We only had a short visit at Zion (we arrived at the park around 10a on Sat morning and were planning to leave before noon on Sunday) as we were passing through on our way back to Phoenix from Vegas. I had picked out what looked to be the two best (for us) hikes in the Park--Narrows & Angels Landing.... More

This trail was so magnificent - the scenery kept getting more and more spectacular the farther we went into the Narrows. Rent the equipment and take this as far as you can - do not limit yourself just to the beginning. you will not be sorry. You will be tired - the current is strong, the river bed is rocky,... More

If you want to do something different and be seriously in touch with nature at its finest, without any go-betweens such as tours or guides, do the Narrows walk in the Virgin River. While many reviews will call it strenous, the truth is you can do what you feel like doing, and turn back when you're tired ! All you... More

Water was muddy due to recent storms. Get the special boots and booties and walking stick. It makes the experience soooo much better. Be very careful if you bring nice camera. It is very easy to fall. Don't turn around too soon. And don't start back late.

We decided to take the 1 mile, paved walk to the start of the Narrows to get a feel for the scenery. We did not have the gear with us to walk the Narrows not was that something we wanted to do on this trip. The walk started out as paved and then went to hardpack, then loose sand. If... More

A beautiful hike. Wear sturdy waterproof shoes and bring a hiking stick. Put this one on your list. We went just for the Narrows, but Zion has a lot to offer and is a great place for a family vacation. Really, I'd love to go back. We probably will,

This hike is 16 miles long (not 12!) and starts at the Chamberlains Ranch, where you have to get by private shuttle (you can get buisness cards for different companies in the visitor center). Its around 30-35$/head. You can spend a night in the canyon, there is 12 campsites, but you need special permit and to get it you have... More

Very nice paved/sand packed trail. Great for kids, wheelchairs, elderly, etc. Lots of weeping rocks and ferns along one side with the river down below to the other side. If you want to hike the narrows, you have to take this trail, which is the first part of the narrows.

This hike was amazing. We spent around six hours on the hike and I loved every minute. I rented the boots, socks and walking sticks for my wife, 14 year old son, and 10 year old daughter. Very glad I did because we would not have made it up past Wallstreet without the equipment. We caught the shuttle at the... More
