Great hike good up and downs you can see forever lots of different views.

This was definitely hard. And it’s more like 8.5 miles. I started at Sunrise Point where I watched the sun rise before heading counterclockwise down the Tower Bridge trail. There are definitely more hoodoos on the amphitheater side than on the Fairyland Canyon side. The trail takes you down to Tower Bridge (a formation that really looks like Tower Bridge in London) and up Boat Mesa, then back down and around through Fairyland Canyon. It ends with a somewhat easy 2.7 mile hike on the Rim Trail.

Absolutely amazing hike. Incredible views that aren’t anything like those in the nearby national parks. Recommend hiking counter clockwise to save the best views for the middle/end of the hike. The strenuous sections are broken up and spaced between long flat sections, which I greatly appreciated

This is an absolutely gorgeous hike with almost constant breathtaking views. This will easily be one of the prettiest hikes that you have ever been on, although it is mildly strenuous.

Favorite hike in Saint George! Lots of breathtaking views, not too crowded, great rocks for bouldering, and just difficult enough to be interesting for experienced hikers. Bring plenty of water (most of the hike will be in the direct sun), and have your phone. The map provided on this app has been helpful a few times for zen trail (easy to lose the trail).

Loved this trail!

This is a unique hike. It is beautiful and worth the hike. I would definitely recommend the shoes pants and walking sticks.

The title of this hike is just for the paved walk before entering the canyon to wade through the river. This part is easy. Obviously the hike gets harder once you are wading through shin deep water which sometimes reaches waist deep or more depending on how far you go. In the fall for sure, I recommend renting shoes, socks, pants, and a hiking pole from an outfitter in Springdale as the water is cold and there is little sun. Anyone bothering to wade through the river should make it to wall street. It is the best portion of the canyon. It is not signed, so get a pamphlet from the outfitter. Access is via Zion's 40 minute shuttle bus ride. Parking is limited at the visitor center. Go early to avoid crowds and to be able to see where you are walking in the river.

I see this trail as the signature hike in Bryce Canyon. We started the hike at the general store and hiked counter-clockwise. This hike lets you get up close and personal with the hoodoos.It's amazing to stand right in front of a hoodoo and look up. On the strenuous scale I would rate the hike a 7 out of 10. The trail had no steep climbs but a lot of ups and downs. The only drawback we had was the mud near the general store and Fairyland Point. Overall a great hike.

I just did this one on 10/16. So glad the ranger recommended to go to one of the outfitters in town. We rented the dry pants, boots, a dry sack for out bags, and a pole, very worth it. The water was freezing and it can be very slippery and easy to roll an ankle if you don't have the proper footwear, the stick really helped to catch my balance a few times. The pant helped keep my pants underneath completely dry and warm too. The water was pretty much ankle to waist deep, I'm 5'8". there are also dry areas that you can walk in too to take a break from the water. We made it all the way up to the end of Wall Street, Wish I new the mileage to each point.

GETTING THERE
It's an 8 mile drive up a well-maintained dirt and gravel road from the interstate to the trail head. The road is suitable for regular cars. It’s a pretty drive through the hills, and there are many dispersed camp sites along the way. At the time of writing, the trail head and Oak Grove campground were closed due to a wash out. I parked a half-mile away at the Ridgeline Trail head and walked into Oak Grove.


THE SCENERY
The views are gorgeous the entire way up and varied. Oak Grove Campground is situated in a ponderosa grove that quickly transitions into oak up from the trail head. At 6,500 ft in the campground, you already have great views of the Colorado Plateau and Hurricane Valley below. Looking up, you see the impressive granite face of Pine Mountain. About halfway up the mountainside, you begin to get very close to the granite wall and its interesting rock formations. Plant communities and climate change over the course of the hike as well.

If you’re afraid of heights, there weren’t any sections with a straight drop until the very end at mile 1.9 (the top of the climb is mile 2.1). Until that point, the slope directly below the trail was never steep enough to make me nervous, and it was thickly vegetated with strong oak shrubs.

THE HIKE
This is a very strenuous hike, with a steep ascent. While steep, the trail is almost entirely composed of switchbacks, making it a little easier than you might imagine for the elevation gain (you won’t ever be hiking straight up). This is a non-technical hike, take your time and you’ll get there.

You’ll be walking over rocks and small boulders on an exposed ridge. It’s going to be hot, bring plenty of water. Trekking poles are recommended as the substrate between the rocks is loose and prone to sliding. Additionally, water has flowed down the middle of the trail in many sections, eroding the trail to a deep V. These sections can be awkward as you are forced to straddle the V as you hike or walk in the narrow bottom. Despite this, it is still a trail and you won’t have to do any scrambling or hike up a scree slope.

Overall, a challenging hike, but much easier than I had expected for the terrain and entirely non-technical.

I guess my one mistake was I didn’t rent any equipment...the water was cold probably in the lower 50s. I couldn’t wait to get out of the water. The rocks have lots of algae on them making them slippery poles would have been helpful. The view was wonderful however.

Not a bad hike, occasionally a little boring but I feel it’s more of a moderate hike than a hard one. Some very unique rock structures and a beautiful view at the top. Not a lot of shade, 2L or water is just about right. Lots of bikers.

Definitely go counterclickwise as Fairyland is lower than Sunrise. And leave a vehicle at Fairyland as the shuttle doesn't stop there. The trail between Tower Bridge and Fairyland is awesome. We walked it in the afternoon and saw hoodos that looked translucent because of reflections off the rocks. We made the mistake of thinking the shuttle stopped at Fairyland, but some very nice people have us a lift back, so we didn't need to walk yet another 2 mi. While Alltrails lists this as hard, it really is just longer than most of the moderately rated trails. Not as crowded as Queens Garden and Navajo, so peaceful.

Holy crap this hike was awesome! The lottery system keeps crowds down to 20 people per day, which you really appreciate when you arrive.

It was raining and the water was about 38 degrees, but it was worth every moment of it. Make sure to have water shoes and hiking pole because the current can get a little rough when it rains. Also, pack lunch and extra clothes in a water bag.

Second time here to the narrows and just as beautiful as ever! Make sure you wear the right shoes though and preferably have hiking poles; we passed quite a few people trying to attempt this barefoot with no poles or anything and they looked like they were having a horrible time. It’s worth it to come prepared! :)

Nice paved path to get you to the start of the water. Watch your step in the water and you should be good, take your time, it’s crowded, always!

very easy trail for a relaxing walk by the river. beautiful landscape.

It's a nice stretch and you can see a garden on the rocks and squirrels and mules. Was exciting and mostly used as a trail head to narrows.

My first proper hike up a running river thru beautiful 2000’ tall narrow sandstone canyons that have been formed over millions of years from the Virgin Rivers constant flow down South eventually ending in Lake Powell

Absolutely fabulous. Now that I have been there, the route is easy. Caution if terrain navigating. 2nd largest slot canyon on NA very close.
