I wish I'd understood better what I was getting into. This trek is really only for those wanting a challenging experience and looking for something adventurous. I would only recommend it for people in great physical shape. The water level was higher than I expected...More

One of our most anticipated hikes on our Utah national parks vacation. After much research, we decided not to rent gear. We own water hiking shoes, waterproof socks and we have hiking poles (which in our opinion having 2 poles was much better than the...More

We rented shoes, socks and a hiking stick for 25$ per person. We were glad we did. The boots had ankle support which I feel is necessary. The water is murky so you can’t see where you step. I could see how it would be...More

This "hike" is one of the most famous and a "must-do" of the hikes in Zion. From the shuttle stop, there is a long paved level path that leads to the river. DON"T STOP before the path dead-ends at the river. The paved path runs...More

This hike is very unique. You can hike for miles or turn around whenever you feel like it. Most of this hike is in the stream. My daughter said this is the best hike she ever did. There were lots of family with small kids....More

Hiking up a river in flowing water with sheer cliffs surrounding you is quite a unique experience. It is a beautiful hike. Late August early September is good time to go because of the air and water temperatures.

You don’t need a guide. Just follow all the other folks and turn around when you’re tired. Adults wore hiking boots and had poles and teens just used sneakers-which dry out in about an hour in this heat! Or rent... More
