This place is gorgeous. The Narrows provides a deep insight into wildlife while letting you explore it. In March 2017 the waterflow could be higher than normally. I went to the Narrows on the 11th of March 2017. I rented a full-dry suit at Zion...More

We hiked the Narrows to Wall Street and back in early March. While it was an exhausting hike, the views were incredible and something we had never done before. If you have never hiked the Narrows before, we highly encourage you to do so. If...More

Don't be fooled by the easy paved trail leading from the bottom at the Temple of Sinawava. After you enter The Narrows, you need waterproof shoes, layered clothing (preferably fast-drying), and moisture-wicking socks. No matter what time of year, you will walk in lots of...More

For the backpacker, one of the signature hikes in the National Park system is a north-to-south through-hike of the Virgin River Narrows in Zion. There is a mystical quality about the place that once paired with the solitude of hiking in its most remote reaches,...More

Lots of water and not too strenuous. If you just go halfway, you don't need a permit. Beyond that, you will need a permit. We started from the bottom (Temple of Sinawava). There are free shuttles to take you to the Temple of Sinawava, starting...More

I am planning to do Narrows hike wading into the river with my 7 and 9 years old kids on June 10. Little worried about my 7 years old boy who is not quite good at balancing. (1) Would you recommend trying? (2) What kinds of shoe are they renting for this trail? We have some Aqua shoes kids wear in the beach. Do you think theses are suitable for Narrows if they wear it with two layers of socks? (3) How many days of notice whether the trail is open can we have through Zion National park website?

We didn't rent the high top shoes but it would have been helpful. I don't think water shoes would work well since the bottoms are sometimes thin. Several places rent the shoes and they seemed stable. They also rent walking... More

Is the Narrow consider an easy level trail during Mid-July? We have two kids (8 and 2) and wonder if it is safe to hike the trail with a child carrier. Thanks in advance for the input!
