Crowded, nice walk and views. Some trails not shown on the maps are not open to the public and they’re fun to explore.

Beautiful hike for the whole family to enjoy.

Hey there! Anyone know if the trail is open? I went by today and the road was closed...

Thanks!

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!

Great hike, amazing views. Less traveled than many routes on Diablo. We had wind gusts up to 60 mph, which is unusual, but made it more adventurous. Would strongly recommend for someone who wants a decent workout in a relatively short hike.

great views along the way, and great payoff at the waterfall along the beach. be careful on the climb down to the beach.

This hike is awesome. Great ocean views, lakes, forest, waterfalls. It is one of my favorite local hikes. Well worth the trip even though it’s pretty heavily trafficked.

Very popular. Beautiful but lots of people.

Great walk. Somehow in hilly SF, there are a lot of flat nature hikes and walks. This one has more incline which is nice. I suggest walking there and back rather than walking the loop so you can enjoy the coastal breathtaking views instead of the road. We decided to not turnaround or take the loop and instead we kept walking to Baker Beach, then through the Presidio and finally into the Marina for lunch. It took about 2 hours 15 mins or 7 miles and my Fitbit recorded I burned 780 calories!

It was a blast and we were exhausted after, but I couldn’t believe all the fantastic views we had! After, we Lyfted back to our car, but we could have Scooted or Jump Biked because the ride was through the Presidio and neighborhood streets. Excellent trek!

Beautiful views of ocean and bridge and lots of fun landmarks to see. We did this hike as the loop, part of which is the road, and if we did it again, would stick to an out and back on the coastal trail- this is where the best views were and felt more like a hike (vs. a walk along the road). Detour to labyrinth/beach was worth the stairs!

Wonderful hike! Arrived at the parking lot 10am Saturday 12/29/18 and there were still space. Relatively easy trail with indicators to the fall. There is some rock scrambling involved, so be careful. When we left 1pm, the parking lot was packed and there were cars parked along the dirt road.

Great moderate workout!

Just got back into hiking before Thanksgiving and this was a great hike. Challenging; but, wasn't too overwhelming. Took a little detour to the observation center to see the view. That made it worth it. Clear day and beautiful views. Was about 34 degrees when we started. Wore layers. Should have brought gloves and something to cover my ears; but, wasn't horrible. Will definitely do this one again!!

One of the best work-for-reward ratios in California. A wildly versatile out and back with very little technical terrain until the final approach to the falls. There you'll find amazing views of the pacific amongst a steady flow of water from the falls. The cliffs are an amazing spot for some food and drinks, or simply personal reflection. I also recommend the slightly more technical walk down to the beach on a steep trail off to the right (looking to the Pacific). There you'll see the falls finish their journey to the ocean. Don't sit too close to the walls though, as the rockfall is a consistent reminder that the erosion that created these cliffs is a never-ending job for mother nature.

Soooo worth it. Such a beautiful hike and the falls are one of a kind. The white arrow at the turn off is almost faded so be aware of where you are going.

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.

beautiful up hill the whole way.

Must do in San Francisco. Lands End is a unique stand out among the stunning west coast (obviously there are plenty of other amazing spots as well) that’s incredibly accessible.

Great hike for all ages. Amazing falls all the way up.

it was a beautiful hike, next time we'll make it all the way, we only hiked halfway because we were out of shape lol it is steep all the way up

Great place for great views. Friendly for hitting, jogging. Easy “hike” for most kids, but there are some steps that need to be navigated so some could struggle a bit.

Pretty hike. Very steep! Beautiful waterfalls almost the entire way up. We stopped at the picnic grounds - someone told us there isn't much to see beyond there.

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.
