One of the hardest things I've ever accomplished! Once you get past the first mile or so the crowds thin way down, and it's just you in a long canyon hallway! Absolutely an incredible experience. Try to make it to the turn around point, it'll...More

This spot, right off the riverwalk at the end of the Zion shuttle bus ride, was lovely as I approached it near sunlight. The walk was closed because of high water, but I can imagine that it must be a stunning walk.

Went early (in park by 8am). the walk is easy, lots of see, take your camera it will be clicking constantly. The Narrows was closed due to the fast flowing water but one can see where to go next time when the water is down.

Wear fast drying clothes, like polyester sportswear, inc underwear, because you will literally be walking the river. Obtain a good walking pole before the trek to aid you're balance and to test the depth as you walk. Beware the rangers will close the walk if...More

The best great view and hike. Make sure that if you are going to hike into the Narrows to go into Town and get the rented I say Required Foot Gear. Its well worth the Extra $$ to Hike The Narrows.

What an awesome hiking experience! I went in the beginning fo summer where there was little chance of flash floods. It was amazing as the area above the narrows was easily in the 90s...sweltering. And the waters was so cold and refreshing that it took...More

We went to Zion in late June 2016 and we were glad we scheduled 3 days there as 1 day was closed for the Narrows due to flash flooding. So worth waiting for! Make sure to rent the shoes and poles from the local outfitters...More

This is the best hike in the park, but plan in advance. Good water shoes are a must - you will be walking through the canyon water most of the way. The views are stunning, and the walking is not super strenuous, but you need...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Hoping to hike The Narrows mid June with husband and 2 teen boys. Wondering what people would suggest as far as bringing food, water and extra layers? Will 2 of us with backpacks be enough? What snacks did you bring and did everything stay dry? Don't want to risk soggy sandwiches or snacks. Also- staying walking distance to park entrance but isn't it cheaper to pay per car than walk in for a family of 4-5?

I am not sure about the cost of car vs. people. I guess check the website. With regards to what to take along, treat it like a hiking day. There are lots of places to stop and rest on huge boulders and take photos and... 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

I am not an authority on The Narrows, but this is what I would share. The shuttle stop for The Narrows is Temple of Sinawava. The trail to get to the start of the slot canyon is a paved trail called Riverside Walk. It's... More
