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

Got lost! Never made it! No idea why we couldn't find it. One day I hope to return and see it.

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.

It was beautiful! I loved it. It is on the Navajo land. You must go with a tour guide. In the past there have been deaths here due to flash flood. So I decided to go with a guide from Dixie tour. The guide Melaney was great and friendly. I highly recommend going there early to avoid the crowd. Book in advance and follow all the instructions. It cost me $50 but it was worth every penny. Don’t recommend it if you are claustrophobic.

Great hike ! Beautiful views - moderate level

Pretty straight forward hike. You can drive down dry creek rd to the trailhead if you want to shorten the hike and get more time for other things. Not strenuous. Very cool views at the end and of course you need to walk across the bridge. Rock/stairs at end can be slippery so be careful.

Very easy. Parking lot nearby.

A very difficult hike for me physically and mentally (I don’t like heights) but worth every step to get to the top! Amazing view!

Wonderful hike with great views.

We finished this hike on Oct 13, 2018. We have a group of 5 people from N2S and a group of 3 from S2N. We started from the north kaibab trailhead at 5 am and finished at bright angel trailhead at 5:30pm.
Downhill with a lot of people, a wall of headlights zigzagging, at a beautiful starry sky background. Detoured for ribbon falls, but did not went too close. Meet our friend around 10:30 and did a funny ‘car key exchange ceremony’. Arrived at phantom ranch at 11:10 am and took a 1.5-hour break, including sending postcard with ‘transfer by mule’ stamp. Arrived at Indian garden at 2:30 pm. The final 3 piece of 1.5mi were difficult as we felt really tired. Not very steep with a lot of switchbacks, but seams endless. Our three other friends arrived around 7pm, caught the heavy rain started around 6:30pm T^T. Our opposite direction S2N friends finished their hiking in just 10 hours!
The scenery along the trail were astonishing. Pushing ourselves to the limit was amazing too!

Did this trail last Sunday. It snowed the entire time, and the crowds were very light. Amazing views all around!!

Challenging hike as far as elevation gain/loss but definitely rewarding. Very agreeable trail material making footing easy. Approximately 90% stone/concrete and 10% sand. Pretty much straight up then straight down so anyone with bad knees...be forewarned. The decent is knee-jarring. Highly suggest good shoes or boots if you don’t want your toes cramming against your shoes on the decent. I saw a few with sandals...and subsequently blisters. Take plenty of water and salty snacks, extra if it’s very hot. If you have time, pack a lunch or bigger snack to enjoy at the top. You’ll be hungry. Overall great hike.

Amazing! Last 3 miles are no joke!

Beautiful hike with even better views! The trail was very busy when we went around 10:00 am. The trail was more difficult than I expected but worth it once you get to the bridge. There is some climbing involved but my dog didn’t have a problem with it.

Worthwhile hike. Couple in mid sixties, experienced hikers. We started at 7:30 am Saturday to beat crowds. We saw about 8 other hikers, all friendly.

The natural bridge is all that other reviewers have described. It is at least 8 feet wide at the narrowest and even those with vertigo should not worry. Just use common sense. We were back down to the trailhead by 9:30. The trail was getting very crowded by then.

We drove the VERY rocky road up from the highway. Our Subaru Outback handled it, but be careful that you have at least 8 inches ground clearance for your vehicle.

Well traveled trail, solid payoff and great morning hike

Great drive to the trail head in the JLU and the hike from there was about an hour round trip! Great views!!!

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! :)

hiked from North rim to South rim on the AZT in a day

Beautiful hike. Did this a couple days ago, with the queen's garden loop and then the peekaboo trail. Bryce is such a unique place, worth the effort! Take water. Wear good shoes.

Beautiful hike with beautiful views! Took us a little over two hours round trip, with a lunch break at the bottom. Easy going down, so don't let that fool you. Coming up will have your heart pumping and your thighs burning!

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!

A must if you are visiting Zion!

A must to see

Très impressionnant comme point de vue. Pas besoin de beaucoup de temps, se fait très bien.

Favorite hike and national park!

well worth the time. can be tough going up but beautiful the whole time

This is an amazing hike! We did it spontaneously without any research and where very impressed with the views!
As Im reading all the coments about crowds, I can suggest to get there in afternoon as we did today. Started the loop around 15 and did run into ~15 people.

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

Left Hurricane about 0630 taking the I15 route up to Bryce. Weather was unfortunately poor. In the low 30s with rainy intermittent sleet and low clouds. Due to the weather and the time there was plenty of parking and surprisingly quite a few people out hiking. It turned out to be a great but wet hike in the canyon.
For what it’s worth I took 89 South, stopped at Red Canyon for an hour hike and then down thru Zion. Absolutely beautiful drive through the canyons. There is a section north of Glendale where the trees are a spectacular array of fall colors. just an overall fantastic drive
