We hiked in early July and this was amazing. Huge cliffs on either side and a beautiful river to hike up & down. Even in July the water was 65 deg F, kinda chilly. Totally worth it. You are in and out of water so...More

This was our favorite hike in our Utah National Park trip. It's a unique experience. Some hints: if you are planning more than just a slight stroll off of Riverwalk, get there early in the day. By 11:00, there are people everywhere. Wear sturdy shoes...More

The Narrows was probably the coolest hike I've ever done. Make sure it's on your itinerary if you're visiting Zion National Park. The canyon walls are absolutely stunning and the water is so crystal clear. Your hike through the canyon has you in the water...More

We hiked early June. Got our boots, poles, socks the afternoon before at Zion Adventure Company, easy, great staff. Water flow was 120 cfm the day we hiked it, so it had a pretty good flow. We did the bottom up hike. We did not...More

We spent 9 days in Utah touring The Mighty Five, and our first national park experience of this trip was hiking The Narrows. We did this in August 2016, and the water level/speed was on the lower end of the scale. I highly recommend renting...More

You take the shuttle to the end of the line, stop 9. Then it's about a half hour hike to reach the Narrows. You will need shoes for walking in water and a hiking stick for balance. Both are available for rent at the entrance...More

Agree with prior answer. You can hike a good 4+ hours in and back out without a permit. As to water level, last week it was running at about the rate of 45 cubic feet per second (CFS). We were told anything below 70 is... More
