Small walk to sign off bucket list. Looks like ants walking up and down. Horrible parking, chaos.

Scenic. We hiked in the afternoon which was ideal as it was shaded. Majestic views all around! We hiked from the 6th tram stop back down to the 5th. Enjoyable.

Bucket list river hike into the narrows. Walking stick recommended, can rent them just outside park. Fun, wet + beautiful.

This is a fairly easy walk down to the bend. The view is awesome. You can walk right up to the edge and look down. Make sure you keep an eye on those little ones. Its a bit scary because there is nothing holding you back. Worth the hike. Bring water with you.

Gorgeous and the water is a welcome cool off. Be prepared for crowds though.

A really great view not that long or hard of a walk. But be prepared to get sand in your boots. Also parking is limited and there’s a lot of tourists. If you need to go to the bathroom do it before you start the trail.

Great and easy walk. Recommend getting there early. Great views and people watching. People, please don't try to do this thing barefoot, I saw 4 people at the start trying to walk barefoot in the river... They probably didn't make it far. Buy some sandals or watershoes. Also, in general at zion don't bother with camping in the park, it stays so hot there in the summer months. Ask one of the park employees for dispersed camp zones. Stayed in one surrounding a lake and it was beautiful

Poor parking, heavily trafficked. beautiful view at the half way decent.

This is just so fun. Make sure you have good shoes (that you're ok getting wet) the water is cold pretty much no matter when you go and the rocks in combo with the cold water will kill your feet.

This is a walk in loose dirt up a medium grade slope, and down the other side toward the canyon. And, this is a tourist stop for busloads of people who don't know hiking etiquette. That being said, its free and fabulous. It's a must-see for any nature lover, hiker, photographer, etc.
Try to avoid this during peak seasons or on weekends, to ensure the trail isn't over-populated AND that you can find parking.
Like everyone else says in these reviews, the view is incredible. It doesn't matter how many times you've been, it's always lovely to see. I typically stop here for a breath of fresh air on my way to Zion from Phoenix.
Quick, short hike with an iconic view. ...and perfect desktop wallpaper picture opportunity.

This was the most trafficked trail I’ve ever hiked and I hiked it on a Wednesday morning. It’s a huge tourist attraction. But the hike to Horseshoe Bend was very short and the view was incredible. Despite the crowds it was definitely worth going. I would recommend!

A easy hiking to the river, with the mode of expectation of hiking in the river!

A lovely hike if you're looking for a trail that takes you by (and in) water. It'll cool you off a little if you're a summer hiker.

Short walk for amazing views! The hike back to the parking lot is pretty steep. Make sure you get there early to beat the crowds.

Very cool experience hiking up the river. Would have been a little easier if the water wasn't so muddy. Definitely get there early morning to avoid the crowds. We were headed back out around 12:30 and the amount of people just entering was mind blowing, especially since all the flash flood warning suggest being out of the narrows by early afternoon. Way too many people for my liking.

Amazing hike! Would suggest to go as early as possible as the crowds for the first few kms take away from the hike a little bit.

Great experience yesterday did this hike since Angels landing trail is still close but Planning of going back soon definitely a must do hike thru the river a little cold but so worth it !

Great hike, get out early to beat the crowds

The trail’s as packed as the splash mountain line at Disneyland, and for good reason—this place is beautiful and accessible.

An interesting and unique experience. Trekking poles were useful, particularly in the rocky areas. Headed in around 5:30 pm and it was relatively empty. About 20 degrees cooler which was great on this 100 degree day! Highly recommend.

Great hike along and in the Virgin River

Awsome hike but too packed when we got there around 10. I would sugest getting on the 1st shuttle for this one. Got a little past the 1st fork, far less crowded up there.

Short distance walk but with an amazing view! It gets crowded and very hot in summer time so hydrate!

Hiked this in the spring and once before. Fun but quite crowded.

Very fun and pretty easy hike! A walking stick definitely prevented me from slipping and plunging into the water several times but the water was so refreshing and not too cold that I wouldn’t have minded it anyways! Only downside was the insane amount of people on the trail, I found myself constantly waiting on others to cross sections of the river which prolonged my hike quite a bit. After you hike about an hour up the river though the crowd thins out, making it much more enjoyable!

This trail was amazing. It was truly a spectacle to behold. Though it was hot out, it wasn’t hot at all in the canyon. The water felt cool but wasn’t freezing. The views were incredible and I would certainly hike it again.

The Riverside is an easy trail. At the end of the Riverside trail, one can begin to hike the narrows by simply following the river. We hiked the river about 2.5 miles passed the fork where we first chose to go right (Orderville Canyon) where the water is warmer, then tracked back to the fork and briefly peeked at what the left fork offered before heading back to the Riverside trail. Fantastic hike, and my 5 y/o thoroughly enjoyed the entire 5+ miles of hiking in the river.

The first time we attempted to hike the narrows, our hike was cut short due to rain (hazardous due to possible flash flood). So we returned 6 years later to continue what we had started. So worth it, and we can't wait to do it again!

Didn't rent shoes, but we did bring walking sticks, which are really, really helpful. We hiked in July and the water is cool, but not too cold. I had no issues hiking in my Keen sandals until we enter Orderville Canyon, where tiny pebbles got stuck in my sandals a few times.

Fun outing with the kids. Didn’t enter the narrows due to flood probability. Would love to come back with better conditions and let the kids play in the river.

Due to flood damage we were only able to hike the lower emerald pool. Not a bad hike but nothing overly special either. I’m sure it would have been a much better hike if we had access to the middle and upper pools.
