It was a pretty walk but the farther you went, the trail just followed the road so it wasn’t that interesting and saw everything we did driving in. No too difficult of a trail to walk

1/11/19 heavy ice on beginning of trailhead. do not attempt without crampons.

GREAT hike! Definitely need cramp-ons to do this safely right now. Absolutely stunning views, and not heavily trafficked at all. 10/10 would recommend.

I’m 50/50 between describing this trail as a hike vs a walk. Regardless, the trail was gorgeous and we had a great time. We ended up doing the full loop, hiking about 5.3 miles in around 3 hours. This was my first experience hiking through Redwoods and this trail didn’t disappoint. The stretch driving from Saratoga to the park headquarters was also a bit of fun. Would definitely go back.

Of all he trails we did today this was my favorite. Easy hike but really spectacular views from every direction & you can wander off in any direction really through the wash which my dog Annie loved

We love this hike. We’re locals and my son works at the park so this is a regular for us. It’s a very popular trail so parking is difficult. Certain times of day changes how the colors look in the rocks. The colors are the most vibrant early in the morning or late afternoon. High noon washes them out.

Steep, but not too difficult. I did not like how exposed the last mile was on the sheer cliff face, but I am afraid of steep cliffs.

A lot better than Angels Landing, because this is less crowded.

Absolutely great views, I would do it again.

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!

Did this early October and really enjoyed it. On my first try I had to return about 15min before I reach the top because it began to rain and a storm was rolling in. But I did it again 2 days later on a perfect sunny day. The view is just spectacular and I stayed for about 1 hour and enjoyed the scenery. Although it was strenuous, going up and down took me a little less than 4 hours. I recommend to start early, so you have some time for yourself at the top before more and more people are coming.

This hike is a difficult and long hike, but is a great hike with incredible scenery. You need to be in pretty good shape to do this hike though. Don't underestimate it. We actually took the easier way when we hiked it. We took a private shuttle in town to the East Mesa trail, and then hiked the East Mesa Trail to Observation Point. Hiking East Mesa Trail eliminates the long and grueling hike from the bottom of the canyon up to Observation Point. The East Mesa Trail starts up on top of the mountain and is a flat three mile trail to Observation Point. When taking the private shuttle, you are able to leave your car by the visitors center. You can hike Observation Point back down into the canyon, and then take the free park shuttle back to your car. We took the private shuttle with Zion Rock and Guide. Cost was about $40 per person, but was worth it for our group of 50 year olds. There are a couple of other companies that do private shuttle services. The view from Observation Point is spectacular and is the best view in the entire park. Do the hike anyway possible, but I'd definitely take the private shuttle route to get there. The hike from the bottom of the canyon goes through a bunch of switch backs, then through a really neat section of Echo canyon, and then some more tough switch backs. Even if you can't go all the way to the top, it would still be worthwhile hiking to the Echo canyon section. That is a neat area to see even if you don't go all of the way to the top. The upper section of switch backs do go along the cliffside with straight drop offs. If you have a fear of heights, this section may be a bit nerve racking for you. But the path is pretty wide to walk on. Happy trails.

Hiked this in early September of 2017. So amazing!! We decided to hike it in the afternoon heat to enjoy the cool water. Bring trekking poles and comfortable shoes for stability as it’s really rocky and hard to see where you’re stepping in the water. Take lots of pictures! We hiked in quick dry shorts and T-shirts and quick dry hiking boots. The boots helped for stability and water drain with each step.

This was a hard trail, as both my husband and I are kind of out of shape. However, with a lot of breaks and a lot of layers (it was winter and cold) we did fine. Make sure to bring food and water, otherwise you'll be in for a painful day. The view was beautiful and made for great pictures.

Fantastic hike with great variety and stunning views. There are some icy sections of the trail but manageable. Took about five hours. Moderate traffic on the day after New Year’s Day.

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.

Nice trail hike with the family. No issues with a dog, 6 and 10 year old boys. Beautiful views.

Did this trail January 1. Spectacular breathtaking views of Zion National Park. Well worth the effort. Definitely recommend having micro spikes on had for portions of the trail that are covered with ice and snow, dress warm it’s cold in the Canyons.

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.

Great, loved the coloring of the fire wave.

Wonderful views at every turn! The climb was unsurprisingly strenuous. Water and good shoes are highly recommended! We saw several people attempting the journey without water and sporting some business shoes, but they did not seem to be enjoying the hike so much. Mid December was the perfect time to go due to the lack of crowds and we were able to spend some extra time enjoying the uninterrupted view at the top! This gorgeous hike is well worth the tired legs!

Love this trail year round but especially when I can swim at the bottom!

Stunning views!!! Long climb, but at a constant comfortable incline. Definitely take traction devices, there is ice most of the way up (December). Some people didn’t take any, and most looked worried most of the time.

Did this in late December and we were lucky with the weather. It was lightly snowing when we started out and there was a light dusting on the ground, but no wind. About halfway through our climb up, the sun came out. We dressed in layers and hiking boots but no tractions (though def looks like it makes things easier for those who had them). I had poles, but my husband didn’t, and we made it and loved it.

Very nice hike, not too crowded! 4 hours with a lunch break! Should bring tractions. Enjoy!

amazing views and doable in December!

This hike is a burner. So fun and very challenging. The view from the top is amazing. View of the entire canyon. Great place to eat lunch and take it all in. Round trip took me about 4.5 hours staying at the top for around 30 min.

Really easy and beautiful hike. Follow the posts that are set up, and it will lead you to the fire wave. The view at the end is amazing with different rock formations and rock colors.
