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.

Fantastic hike in the snow. Few people and amazing views.

So I did this hike today (OCT 14th) with my wife. It was snowing when we pulled up to the lot but we decided to trek on anyway. The views were beautiful. We saw a total of 6 deer (although two of them may have been the same ones just several hours apart). We also saw a moose. The going got tough towards the top because the last mile or so is about .6 mile elevation. Investing in some spikes for the shoes is probably a great idea. Some gaiters are probably not a bad idea but hiking poles definitely help to probe the snow. The lake was frozen and it was gorgeous. I forgot my sunglasses so when the sun came out the snow kinda hurt my eyes! Some hikers that were there before us said the route up to Pfeiferhorn was too tough because the snow was too deep. Overall great trail. Easy to follow.

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!

Tough trail if you’re not in shape — uphill the entire first half, and pretty steep. Also, the trail was already coated in ice, which made the going slow toward the top (especially on the way down). Poles or chains recommended. But the view at the top was gorgeous, the lake was so serene — and we had two wild moose sightings (from a safe distance)! Highly recommend, just be prepared.

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.

Wish I'd brought gloves and spikes cause it was damn cold after the saddle and slippery on the way down. Beautiful hike though, will do again.

Super fun
Great work out with family

Very beautiful. We saw two moose, ducks, and a woodpecker. Definitely steep for the first half.

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! :)

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!

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

great hike, bit of a climb back out but beautiful.

Hiked to the Lake early in the morning as usual but this time before the sun came up. Needed a headlamp for the first couple of miles. Even got to see three pair of eyes looking at me in the dark and was kind of eerie not knowing what was looking back at you. By the time that I arrived at the lake it was light enough to see everything. I continued up the trail to Twin Lake and think that I saw the same three deer that were blinking at me earlier.

Very much a tough trail if you are not in shape. The trail is very rocky and hilly but well traveled. Take plenty of water and take plenty of breaks to keep from getting winded.

It was steep but the view was pretty cool once you get there. We backpacked so we hiked at night and woke up to a beautiful fall view. Did it about 1.5 weeks ago

Really cool views. Pretty steep in some spots, but not too bad. Straight forward hike.

Really easy and really pretty. :)

Lol... this one is steeper than some rated hard on here. It’s just short. I’d say this is moderate, because of the steep part. It’s really not hard, but still a lot steeper than some others rated lower. Decent view.

This isn’t too bad. Only hard for about a mile. If you do this hike though, you might as well go one more mile to pfeiferhorn in my opinion though. :)

This trail is probably one of the easier hard rated hikes. If you’ve done Jacobs ladder and summited or even upper bells, this will be pretty easy. Awesome views at the top though. Really fun for a day hike.

Very touristy but if you’re okay with that then it’s breath taking... I understand why it’s filled with tourist because it’s easy to access off a main road, easy hike for the whole family, and beautiful views!

It's a nice stretch and you can see a garden on the rocks and squirrels and mules. Was exciting and mostly used as a trail head to narrows.

amazing!!

Great hike! Not for those wanting an easy walk. The scenery changes as the summer progresses. I have Verizon as my cell carrier and get service right before hitting the saddle of the basin. Love that because I can share pictures at that moment. I wear microspikes and take hiking sticks every time.
