Awesome; we did this 2 days in a row. We walked back into the Narrows approx. 4 miles each day. It's like being a little kid again as you cross the Virgin River back and forth as you make your way up the Narrows. Be sure to bring a walking stick or there are some left at the trail head before heading up the Narrows that are branches from trees and left for your use. They work great. Go early; we tried to be the first ones at about 7:30 so we could get the full effect of the canyon walls and river. Absolutely fantastic

Fun "hike" through the water, very pretty and worth the effort. take your time and enjoy, not for everyone, but if you enjoy the out doors, you will love this "hike".

Went in october and the weater was perfect. I would suggest renting the water shoes, walking pole and socks from zion adventure company prior to the hike (20 bucks a person). Yes there are people walking barefoot and those with tevas, but I wouldnt recommend this. The rocks can be shart and are slippery. The hike is marked as strenuous, but it is a flat river bed, so I think it was more of a moderate intensity. We hiked from the bottom up, so you can go as far up the river as you want and turn around at any time. During this time of year, the river is not deep, and the water only went up to about mid thigh on me (im 5'4"). You are in the water about half of the time, and while the water was slightly cook, I felt fine without the waterproof pants. A must when you visit zion

Due to time constraints we had to do this hike after it had rained and the water was very high and very muddy---but it was still spectacular! I would love to do it again in clear water. Definitely grab one of the free walking sticks at the head of the Narrows, you'll need it. Wish we could have walked further before turning around but the water was waist high and we were exhausted after a mile or so

We had a great time. What a beautiful place. Rented the shoes and dry pants from local sports shop. But I think an old pair of runners and quick dry shorts would have been good enough.
