I did this hike in late September. It is a really neat hike through a slot canyon w two waterfalls. This was one of the top three hikes I did in Zion. This hike is definitely worth the time to do. Your feet and legs will get wet. You are hiking in and out if water the entire way, mostly ankle to lower calf deep. A few spots were mid thigh deep. Water is pretty cold, but your in and out of it so it isn’t as noticeable as the Narrows. The ladders at the waterfalls are a bit challenging, but we made it safely. The second ladder is not safe to climb. We stopped at that point. This hike is through a true slot canyon. The scenery is some of the best in Zion. I think. There was a cost of about $8 if I recall correctly. But it was definitely worth the $8 cost. Would definitely do again. The hike is not for little kids though.

Did this on the 24th of December. Second time this year I've done this hike. One of my favorite hikes. Water is about 40' this time of year so be prepared for cold feet. Not a good time of year to go to the second waterfall unless you have a wet suit. Beautiful

My boyfriend and I did this hike and loved the views along the way. It’s a moderate hike with multiple trails labeled as “Thor’s Hideout” that weave and cross paths throughout the hike that can add to the experience. The trail head is labeled “Red Hollow”.

Spectacular even on a cool November day!

Lovely, beautiful And adventurous trail! Captivating landscapes and rock walls!

The hike was beautiful! The water was very cold!

amazing!!

Such a beautiful hike the entire way!!! I wish I was wearing more water appropriate shoes. It makes me want to buy Chacos. I hiked in my hiking boots and it took two days to air them out haha. There was a forest fire on the day I went and the sky was this gorgeous orange color even tho it was around noon time. The orange sky bouncing off the colors of the walls of the creek and the slot canyon were to die for. I want to bring friends here and see it again!

Hiked all the way to the second ladder but did not go up the second ladder. It was supposed to be decommissioned, also there were a few people struggling with it and we didn’t feel like waiting so we turned around.
Water level was ankle-high most of the way, only hip-high in a few spots. Beautiful trail! Make sure you wear proper shoes. I wore water shoes which worked fine. The trail was moderately trafficked this last Saturday afternoon in September.

Awesome trail, must wear proper waterproof hiking shoes.

First half of the trail is very hot and dusty. Cools off substantially when you hit the narrows and the shade. Lots of hiking through water, sometimes almost waist deep. The best part of the trail comes after you get past the first ladder. That first ladder is quite dangerous so climb carefully and make sure your footing is secure. The trail was closed after the second ladder because there was some sort of accident involving it the prior weekend. It looked much scarier than the first ladder. Overall, amazing hike with spectacular views.

This hike was beautiful once you get past the dirt road going in you'll be hiking in and out of the water so please wear the right footwear. walking through the Narrows with a beautiful red rock is breathtaking.

This hike is beautiful! There are a couple of challenging spots, the second ladder is a bit unsettling. Water feels good! I don’t recommend wearing flip flops. Something water proof and sturdy. This hike is definitely one to do again!

September 7th, Incredible hike! The color contrast and sounds combine for an amazing experience. It’s an easy hike with two gorgeous waterfalls inside a slot canyon. We hiked just past the second of the waterfall and then turned around. The entire hike took just under 3 hours from the parking lot (we took our sweet time because of the incredible vistas). Highly recommend it.
Only complaints are the $9 per person fee can get steep for a large family and of course that no dogs are allowed, I get it, but still.

One of my favorite hikes of all time. Walking through the river in a slot canyon. Deep in some places. I'm 5'8" got up to mid thigh. This hike starts off slow but once you start the river nothing short of amazing.

We went in the middle of august in between thunder storms (I know, don't do that it can be dangerous) They charged as $9 at the base because people have been vandalizing, crushing vegetation, having fires, and littering. So they are hoping the fee will deter those types of shenanigans. I SUPPORT THAT. It is a pretty easy hike. You'll come up to your first slot canyon after a little ways, in there will be the first ladder. The ladder is sturdy but can be a little shaky and slippery so just be careful. After the first ladder there is a series of pools. If you keep hiking you will come up to another slot canyon. The water here got up to my bellybutton at some points (I am 5'7"). In the second slot will be a second ladder. This one is wooden and VERY rickety. The base log is sturdy but the rungs can be swiveled around and there is one missing near the top leaving a large gap. The ropes attached though are stable and a HUGE help. Honestly, I wouldn't go much father past the second ladder, I dare say that I would stop at the ladder. After that it just gets skinnier and skinnier. My friends and I hiked it for 4 hours and never found a "ending destination" so save yourself the trouble and stop at the second ladder.

Went up to this on Aug. 24th, 2018. Beautiful hike, wearing tennis shoes, water is cold initially but you get accustomed to it once you walk a while. There is actually a third waterfall further back and the trail connects to a dirt road, (Lower basin road). If you take the dirt road to the left it will bring you back to the north end of Kanarraville.

Definitely recommend this hike, such beautiful scenery!!!

There is a short mile or so walk at the end. Be sure to wear appropriate clothing. We did this at the end of April and it was snowing at this elevation even though we left Las Vegas in summer clothing.

Beautiful hike! Make sure you bring water shoes and maybe a pair of shoes to change into after. This hike was fun. You go back and forth in and out of the water til you get up to the waterfall. My feet got really cold initially so I sat down once I got to the waterfall. I ate some lunch and let them thaw out for the way back down and I was fine. Very pretty hike and it was fun to go thru the water

This place is amazing. Make sure not to hike in flip flops. I witnessed someone falling off the ladder because they did it in flip flops. This hike is kid friendly. The second ladder needs fixed. They charge you $8 to hike it and an additional $1 per hiker to process your card. So it's really $9....so dumb but the hikes worth it.

Had a wonderful hike with our family. Park for free and pay $8 per person for entrance. We went up both ladders and continued beyond the area where groups gather to play in the pool and slide down the waterfall/rock slide. We went probably another 0.5 miles up the creek -- probably the most scenic parts of the slot canyons with vertical walls and amazing colors and we had it all to ourselves. The ladders were tricky but manageable -- we had an adult go up and down right below our youngest (8 and 9). The ladder steps were placed fairly widely so it helped to have someone close to help with foot placement. We were there mid-July and enjoyed the cool water -- everyone was fine in water sandals (e.g, Keens)

Loved this hike! So beautiful and peaceful!! Bring water shoes!! Water is cold but refreshing! Pretty slippery too! We trail ran on the way back! Very easy! I don’t know how people bring small kids to hold though, I needed both hands to hold myself up in rocks and getting up the ladder! Very nice to take your time and enjoy the stream and waterfall!

Awesome hike, not sure when it ends though.

Our group ranged in age from 4 to 69, avid hikers to couch potatoes and everyone LOVED it!!! We all would do it again!

great hike, did it with my 5 year old.

stop at the sweet spot for pan it and drinks.

This was maybe one of the most fun hikes I’ve done to date!!

Absolutely amazing! Breathtaking and worth every step!
