I did this during a snowstorm. It was technically challenging because of this and spikes were a must, but because of the storm there was zero visibility and I didn’t get to see the stunning views! Will def go back on a sunny day. The top portion is no joke.

Excellent hike with a little history at the top, I love hikes with a goal! As for the trails, Turkey Trot was far more entertaining than the Castle side which we came down. Being that the Castle trail was on the sunny side, it was pretty slushy and muddy. Yaks or spikes were necessary today to prevent slipping on my a$$.

Very easy walk. Beautiful Canyon views!

Hiked on 1/21, the trail is very snowy, and can be slippery at some steep slope (even with micro spikes), especially near the top. but the trail was absolute beautiful, quite, and it’s super fun to hike on! It took us a little more than 3 hours to complete, because we stopped a lot for taking photos. Lake on the top was half frozen; it’s gorgeous and totally worth the effort.

Had to do this trail after seeing it in Lonely Planet’s Epic Hikes of the World. It was as stunning as promised. My only complaint was how busy the trail was .. and that was in January. It has to be ridiculous during peak season.

Went up 1/16. That first portion was all mud and ice.
Immediately used yak trax. I wore the trax the entire time. Mostly powder packed, mostly not slippery but occasionally.

Had to be more careful than usual going down the final scramble from the top due to melt on rocks.
If you’ve done this trail before, you’ll be fine.

Really nice hike with spectacular views of the canyon and little niches for meditation. I didn’t finish because I started too late in the day and it was getting dark, but I made it 4.3 miles round trip, so I probably was close. I hiked solo so I wasn’t planning on scrambling with the chain. Definitely would do it again and complete it.

Hiked on 1/17, lots of wet snow making the trail difficult at the top. Yaktrax were helpful. The lake was mostly frozen.

Go early. Its a popular trail & it becomes too trafficked-especially when the park is in full swing

DO NOT TRY TO TAKE GOOGLE MAPS ROUTE WITH MOUNTAIN BASE ROAD IT'S CLOSED! Did half this hike on 1/12/19. Snow packed trail approx 4-8 inches great for snow shoeing but can be done with yak tracks! Did the trail clockwise and there's a pretty decent incline about 1/3rd of the way in. Didn't make it to panaroma point due to starting really late but I would highly recommend and am planning to go back soon!

No comment...just wonderful, amazing trail.

Very icy near the top. A bit of a scramble too, most dogs wont make it the last .4

This was the scariest thing I've ever done. I'm proud of myself for doing it because I'm terrified of heights but I won't ever do it again. We were appalled at the people hiking to the top with small children. Yes, it's beautiful but it's also dangerous. Be safe.

hard trail down. beautiful views

Amazing

1/10/19 quick and easy. slight presence of ice near the waterfall.

1/11/19 Incredible hike and views. Ice is present on the wiggles and from the first set of chains. It is possible to get past first set of chains without clamp one but would not recommend. very easy to slip.

Perfect. Yak tracks or microspikes help but not required.

Went up on New Years Eve, it had snowed about an inch the night before and everything was absolutely beautiful. The shuttle was running and we caught the second or third one out at 8:20. There were about 40 people hiking the switchbacks around us, but that number dropped to about 20 when we hit the chains because of the snow.

I would NOT go past the first short stretch of chain without micro spikes. Several portions were extremely slick, and the couple hiking ahead of us without spikes made me nervous. About 90% of people we saw that day had spikes on. Well worth the $20.

Took us almost exactly three hours total, from hopping off the shuttle to getting back to the stop. It was starting to get crowded as we came back down, which would have added a lot more time waiting for the narrow parts to clear up before passing.

Icy and snowy on trails! Need micro spikes or at the very least hiking shoes!

Hiked 1/12/2019. Lots of snow, microspikes are helpful. Trail is easy to find. Started at 8:30am, only passed a few people coming up, but trail was busy on our descent.

Went on a fresh snow day. It was stunning great views wildlife and moderate traffic. Under the snow there was packed ice but the drag snow kept the walk stable without having to wear spikes. Snowshoeers were out and about. I’d definitely do it again!

Fresh snow but I made it most of the way with spikes and poles. Just follow the power lines - but be careful, parts of the lines were covered in snow. About a mile up the snow got deep enough I decided not to try going farther.

A fantastic hike with incredible views. I went counterclockwise on the loop and at the top of the first climb there is a view that makes the entire hike more than worth it. Certainly a hard hike, with lots of up and down switchbacks, but “peakaboo” moments around every bend.

One of, if not the most spectacular hikes I've ever experienced! Amazing view of the canyon and a thrilling trail that towers above the river below!

this place fuckin sucks dick

I loved this hike, we where there first part of November. The deepest part of the Narrows was just above the knee. We had rented the water gear at Zion Adventures. The water temp was 42 degrees and we where not cold at all, feet were wet the whole time, kinda felt like you had jello in your shoes! We hiked about 5 hours up and back. I will definitely do this hike again!!! The scenery was spectacular.

Aweosme hike. Brought the entire family along-deer in the stream-waterfalls-scenic spots-everything is surreal here!
