Go here to cool off

Everyone goes here. Like, literally everyone. To swim. We hiked in about 3/4 of a mile and enjoyed the cool air back there (having done Angel's Landing in the morning) but decided... read more

Zion is a busy location and when you come into the park its humming and parking is a nightmare. It's not a good start, but the shuttle all the way to the Narrows works well. The walk from the shuttle to where you enter the river is surprisingly long and once in the river it's quite hard work. It's also... More

Everyone goes here. Like, literally everyone. To swim. We hiked in about 3/4 of a mile and enjoyed the cool air back there (having done Angel's Landing in the morning) but decided that we'd need better equipment and more time if we wanted to hike deeper in. So we decided to just sit in the river for a little bit... More

Be sure to bring a walking stick or rent one! This was the most fun hike we did in Zion! Although Zion Outfitters recommended using their river shoes, we wore our tennis shoes and did just fine. The area got more crowded as the day progressed so if you can go early in the day, you can beat the heat... More

The 1st mile is a blacktop trail that is easy to navigate. You walk upriver, constantly crossing back and forth to the sandbar sides. Go early in the morning, as it gets extremely busy later. The water is refreshingly cool as it will get hot on the return trip or later in the day. Water shoes worked out quite well... More

lovely easy hike to the narrows and even if you dont take the water hike go to the beginning and bring a snack lunch and take some pics in the shallow water on the rocks.

I came here with my husband and 8 year old daughter. We really enjoyed the hike even though it was very hot and a miserable walk from where the shuttle drops you off to the entrance of the Narrows. Once we got in the water it was so nice. The water was cold but you get used to it. (This... More

I have to completely agree with reviewer EdQ44 from Cleveland! Everything he says we also experienced. We rented our canyoneering gear from Zion Adventure Co. the day before; really great people there! Our family of 4 just returned from Zion, Bryce Canyon and Arches and hiked Bottom Up to Wall Street on a Saturday. Exciting but just wall to wall... More

Gorgeous experience. I suggest tennis shoes or hiking specific as lots of rocks. My trail running shoes were perfect, I think water socks would not provide enough protection. River level was low during most of excursion (knee high on 5'10" adult & waist high on 11-13 year olds being the deepest points). Being in the water helped keep us cool... More

A lovely walk, so cooling in the heat of summer. We went a couple of miles up into the Narrows and no real need for special gear. Wear good, sturdy trainers and you'll be fine. They'll dry quickly once you're back in the sun! Take a good, high-on-your-back backpack to keep your valuables safe and dry. As others say it... More

Beautiful. Would definitely come back to spend a little more time and try to go further up. All we had were hiking sandals and we were fine.
