The river water was refreshing on a hot summer day. The farther you go up the canyon, the more amazing the canyon walls appear, not to mention fewer people. Our gear include, camelbak packed with snacks, bathing suit, water shoes and hiking pole. The river bottom is a mixture of slippery river rock and sand bars, but nothing difficult. We... More

Need shoes that can either get wet or you don't mind getting soaked. Beautiful cool walk even on a hot day.

We spent about half of a day exploring this area. I recommend going early because it gets very crowded. We rented equipment nearby for canyoneering and I would strongly recommend doing that.

We walked up the river in sneakers without walking sticks and it was just fine with some balancing acts. No idea what it costs to rent shoes and sticks but I would safe the money for something else. It was quite crowded as we went in the early afternoon. The water is a welcoming refreshment but all in all it... More

This was a highlight of our trip. To avoid crowds, I recommend starting early. I also highly recommend renting shoes, socks, and a walking stick. We rented from Zion Guru and they were helpful, informative, and provided good quality equipment. It proved truly amazing!

My best advice for hiking The Narrows is to get there early (be on the 6am bus) and rent the water hiking shoes/socks and poles. We were on the first bus and there may have been 15-20 people starting the hike but as groups hiked at their own pace, we were pretty much by ourselves for stretches of the river.... More

We went to Zion for vacation but drove in from Las Vegas, so we didn't get to the start of the Narrows until 1:30pm. It was not nearly as crowded as we expected or as we were led to believe it would be. It was spectacular and the farther you travel into the narrows, the narrower the canyon gets. Would... More

Do not forget to bring water shoes and a change of clothing. You will not be alone, but all those people can't be wrong, can they?

Ok - it even sounds like fun in the Park Description - first you walk for a mile on a paved access path - then you wade thru water that goes from ankle to waist deep as you wind your way up an increasingly narrow canyon. The high walls tower - literally tower above you as you go. And the... More

This is my first river hike and I am so glad I made it.. I checked with the park ranger at the visitor center about the flash flood rating and he gave me a good news to go ahead .. As there are no private cars allowed in the park during summer , I got into park shuttle.. The Narrows... More
