We only hiked up about 20 minutes into this canyon after completing the Narrows hike to the end of Wall Street. The water in Orderville Canyon was crystal clear and running fast; quite a difference from the murky water of the Narrows. We traversed three rises going up this canyon before we chose to turn back (time constraints). The three... More

12 miles of hiking, rock scrambling, rappelling, swimming, etc. Took us around 9-10 hours from top down. Orderville meets up with the Narrows which was a bonus. Everything that we trained for we got to do! Definitely worth it if you're a beginner in canyoneering! Definitely doable and worth the effort.

This is a fun, pretty easy canyon for beginning canyoneers. There are about 3 repels, only about 20-30 ft each. The top down hike can easily be done in a day and is pretty easy going.

We did this a a side hike from the Narrows. We found it to be majestic, mysterious, not crowded, but were disgusted to find many large piles of fresh human feces and toilet paper where hikers sought out the seclusion of this side canyon to deposit their excrement instead of planning ahead and bringing provisions to pack it out (RestStop2...

We hiked Orderville canyon from the top down. Most economical way is to drop a car at the narrows parking lot, or if the shuttles are running, then at the Zions Canyon visitors center. There are good directions online so won't go into the details. If you can get someone to drop you off at the trailhead that's even better.... More

It's my understanding that you can get to Orderville Canyon by hiking up The Narrows in Zion National Park. We hiked in some other way with a guide. The views are stunning. Don't visit Zion without seeing a real slot canyon. It's worth the effort. And bring a waterproof camera. You'll want to photograph your accomplishment!

The Orderville Canyon hike is the best kept secret in Zion National Park. The Virgin Narrows hike is long and tedious. The Subway is a great hike but overly popular and difficult to get reserved. Orderville on the other hand has great slot canyon aspects as well as the Virgin River section added at the end. A wonderful hike for... More

Orderville Canyon is puts the adventure into The Narrows. Our group of 6 adults and 7 teens climbed over 3 waterfalls, waded through water a bit higher than our waists, and balanced over fallen tree bridges to get to "big waterfall" about a mile upstream with a deep pool below for swimming. Most are intimidated by the first waterfall about... More

Our unruly, uncooperative kids really bonded over this side trip off the Narrows. We spent an hour going into Orderville Canyon from where it branches off from the Wall Street section of the Narrows, which can be crowded. We got as far as the waterfall. We heard going beyond it made for a challenging return, and it was getting late,... More
