Hold on to the chain!

3 bc this is just for the river walk, but 5 for the narrows. Bottom-Up isn’t an option to review on this app. A previous trip I did the river walk bc my friend wasn’t a big hiker plus the conditions borderline that time of year. The paved HC accessible route just not for me and wasn’t at all a good impression of what Zion has to offer. The longer harder hikes are a game changer for those capable and willing to work a little. Anyways this was one of 7 back to backI hikes I did in a 6 day period between Bryce and Zion. I rented gear and at this time of year there’s not a crowd in the river (and Subway permit odds extremely high if you do a two day gear rental). A few times you have no option but to be waist deep so the full drysuit was reassuring even though many times I was too warm. Walking stick very helpful to test depth and determine direction of walking or at times when the extra sturdiness helpful bc of the current.

app said it was 4.4 miles, when we hiked it and recorded it. it was 5.2 miles.

Paved path with lots of areas to walk down to the river. We went Dec 12th and it wasn't too crowded. Great way to see the beginning of the narrows and looking up all you see is canyon walls. There was also dirt paths by the river you could walk but you do have to come up to the paved path at some points. We also saw the dipper bird! Very beautiful and peaceful hike, easy and wheelchair assable.

This area has smaller parking than other trail heads. Short and steep but overall it took us around 30min in and out. We went Dec 13th and the trail was wet, not many people.

Fun and easy hike while connecting into hidden canyon. Made a nice day combining scrambling, hiking, scenic views and some off-trail adventures if combine these two hikes.

Most exhilarating hike ever!

Very easy trail, family friendly.

beautiful hike, way too crowded though. Very easy, and paved. Watch out for the squirrels. They make it impossible to stop for a snack :-)

The road to the trail is closed for the next 5-6 months FYI. I didn't read about it anywhere beforehand so I was a little disappointed. you can still walk to it but it is like 9 miles total and I didnt have time for the extra hike

Nice short walk along the river. Accessible for wheelchairs as fully pathed. Is very heavily trafficked. If want to go far into the narrows you can hire waterproof boot and trousers from the visitor centre for the next day.

Very cool to see. crowded but worth it.

Perfect hike for kids and older parents. crowded though so go earlier in day rather than later.

Perfect easy hike to get a taste of Zion. Very crowded though.

Be aware that the road leading to the trail head is currently closed. Walked a little over 2 miles from HWY 190 just to get to the trail head. As far as the hikes goes. Pretty basic - nothing that exciting. If you have time you'd be better off spending time in the dunes or badlands - Golden Canyon, just my opinion. The upside is that since the road is closed there is no one in the canyon. We only saw 4 people in about 3-4 hours;

this is the hike that gives you want zion is all about. canyons and water. next time I would not rent gear. but yes for the colder people. yes it's fun,scenic.

Lots of switchbacks, approx 30. But the view of the canyon at the end was worth it.

Easy trail to do with kids, just bring waterproof shoes with good traction.

Short hike with a great view. Worth the effort.

Just walked passed this section today Nov 17 2018 and it is closed due to rock fall. You can keep going to the observation point thou.

Cool and nice. Water is very urgent and fast. Fell down a couple times.

I read that the rock fall was in the chains section. My question is can you hike up until this section and stop? Love this part of the trail and will be there November 19! I assume you can at least get to the trail split to observation point but I would like to continue to the right direction before the “chains.”
