This is a must-see! Bring: towels, a bag for wet clothes, spikes for shoes, dry socks and underwear/bra to change into. Wear: your bathing under your clothes and hiking boots!

The actual road to the trailhead is gated off due to snow. The hike ends up being about 3.8 miles there and 3.8 back. We started at 3 in the afternoon and made it to the springs by 4:30 (about 1.5 hours hike) hopped in the springs for a bit and made our way back in the dark.

The springs have several different pools with varying temperatures. We were in the one closest to the little water fall at the end of the trail and it felt like it was a hundred degrees! We loved it and so glad we had a chance to experience this place.

This trail is super snowy currently and some places are slick and muddy. I highly recommend good hiking boots with plenty of traction. We stopped by Walmart and picked up towels and those over-the-shoe spikes and they really helped. The hike back in the dark was really icy in some spots (thank goodness we packed a headlamp). A few people tagged along with us on the way back and they were in running shoes and slipped and fell down several times.

Got here around 3:30pm. Lots of snow but most of the trail is packed snow from all the people hiking up. We only made it a mile up because we didn’t want to hike back in the dark and there were a couple avalanche fields with downed trees which makes it hard to follow the trail. Probably not the best time to hike up until the trail is easier to find but if you want to go up the avalanche part you’d still get a good 2 mile hike out of it. Overall, it was a great hike and I’m definitely coming back to see the waterfall!

This is my favorite trail to mountain bike on. There’s so many good views and the river along the trail is beautiful. Good place to go if you just need to get away from the city. Doesn’t take very long either. I went hiking there last week and it was just as beautiful with all the snow and the sound of the creek.

Great hike. I did a Google Earth Trail on Saturday here. You can do a virtual like walk of the trail and into the cave at www.shaunasadventures.com or on Google Earth. We had on spikes/ Crampons and made it to the cave fine. Headed up a little before 9, and there was not too many crowds, but as we headed down there was a huge group heading up. Most people heading up had sleds. I wish I would have asked them where they were heading to sled. I am thinking they were going to take the V shaped trail marked on my blog to the North Fork road and then sled down it. Definitely would have been fun sled ride down.

One of the best snowshoe hikes in Provo Canyon. There was a ton of snow today. I wore my spikes, but wished I had snowshoes. I usually do this as a loop, turning left at the Big Springs sign, heading through a couple of meadows. I often see turkey up here.

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

This is a get your picture and leave type of hike. Compared to Corona and Bowtie, it was meh. The arch itself is awesome. The hike up is nothing special. At the top, you’re met with a whole bunch of people with little hiking ettiequte. People perched under the arch making it impossible to get a photo and groups of people talking and yelling.

An all around better option is Corona and Bowtie. The drive there is AWESOME! The hike is so freaking fun and the arch is just as spectacular.

You have to see Delicate arch when you come to Utah, but definitely don’t do this as your only arch hike!

Wow! (In Owen Wilson’s voice)
This trail was EPIC! Incredible views and 100% worth it! It was considered moderate for us. It took about 1 hour and 15 minutes to hike up and 40 minutes to go back down. It was a little Icy but nothing too crazy. Elevation gain was a little difficult at times, but doable. Definitely a must do! Unbelievable views at the arch!

The trail was snow packed and beautiful! It was easily doable without spikes or snowshoes! The gate was closed 1.5 miles out from the trailhead, but was a beautiful hike! Prepare yourself to have a towel and dry clothes when you get out of the springs!

Short and easy yet stunning and beautiful. Delicate arch, probably the most famous of all the arches and understandably so.

It is “only” 1.5 miles each way, but there is a lot of elevation and uneven footing. Right now there is also snow and ice. So I would say it is moderate to difficult. BUT totally worth it. Amazing to see the Arch up close! This is a must-do in the park!

easy hike, good views. Dont try and get a picture by the falls unless you want to walk back with freezing feet. Ha!

Beautiful, easy hike. Cool ice cave. Hiked today (mid-January) with hiking/snow boots and we were just fine.

Beautiful evening to see the most iconic natural structure in Utah! It was a perfect hike with excellent views. The only downside is all the tourists who actually walk directly under the arch. Had to photoshop quite a few people out of my photos!

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!

The lower emerald pool was beautiful. Easy stroll and gorgeous even in the winter. The path to the middle and upper pools is closed indefinitely due to a rock slide.

Amazed how the arches were formed! Love it!

I hiked through this canyon two weekends ago with my dog. It was SO awesome. We didn’t go all the way because my dog kept getting nervous and she was sliding on some of the rocks. I would probably bring some booties for her paws next time. There wasn’t any water to walk through which was a bonus(would’ve been so cold!) but it was so pretty and not overly crowded. I’ll be going back when the weather is warmer!

great hike! we didn't go up the last portion but it was so much fun anyway. snow was packed in but we had spikes and poles. definately need to go back and go up to the cave!

I hiked this yesterday with a friend. It wasn’t too crowded and the snow was packed down so hiking boots were fine. We didn’t do the very last part to the actual falls because it was too steep and slippery. Other people were doing it though.

Great trail, long hike mostly on redrock. Very short portion through the sand. Recommend, definitely worth the view and picture at the end.

Did this hike in 103 degrees which SUCKED. But once you get to the top, the view is gorgeous. The hike isn’t too long, but it’s essentially straight up the entire way. Definitely wear good hiking shoes, as the rock is in a fish bowl formation at the arch, and can be slippery and if you fall... well... ya done lol. Definitely bring water, and LOTS of sunscreen if going during the summer, there are no trees on the way up.

I did this hike in late September. Weather was 90 degrees, but the water was 62 degrees, and cold. The Narrows path is a paved trail along the river that ends at the entrance into the Narrows canyon. I would strongly suggest renting the neoprene socks and hiking shoes in town, along with a hiking stick. Your hike will be much more enjoyable if your feet aren't freezing cold (we didn't and wished we did). Stick definitely helps with your balance. Don't underestimate things in hiking up this river. The Narrows hike up the canyon is an incredible hike and unlike anything I have ever done before. The scenery and environment is spectacular and a MUST do at Zion. The place is very crowded, which is a draw back. But is it still worth it.

This was an easier than moderate hike in my opinion, and an absolutely amazing winter destination.

Amazing short little hike. It has hard snow pack so no snow shoes necessary. The view at the falls is amazing. Truly a great one for the whole family. And the reward is well worth the work.

Started this at 9:00 AM with the temp at 16 degrees. Had more people than I thought given the weather but was well worth the hike

Hiked up the narrows. Rented gear to keep our feet warm and bodies dry. Did the hike with 4 kids ages 9-13 and 2 adults. Everyone loved it. Despite it being December and snowing lightly for part of the trip, we were warm as long as we kept moving. Wall Street was amazing and also hiked the other way towards veiled falls. Quieter going this way and equally wonderful! Steady traffic in and out but you also had moments where it was just your group.
