Wow! Great trail, short and shady so perfect for the summer months. Don't miss this scenic little hike! Great for kids, too!

Prettty hike and worth the visit.

Easy and short hike with an incredible view!

This trail should not be rated easy!! Easy = I can take grandma on a short hike and she will be fine. Easy = I can hike this in sandals.

Nope! You need proper hiking footwear and anyone with balance or mobility issues of any kind should not be on this trail. This trail has steep sections (especially in the beginning) minor rock scrambles, and some exposed areas with steep drop offs without railings! There is one area in particular that was really sketchy - it’s very narrow, slick rock, and still wet due to recent monsoon rainstorms - no railings when it should really have them. One slip and it’s over....

Any fear of heights, don’t do this! The overlook is nice but there are better hikes in the park so don’t be disappointed if you can’t find parking.

Nice path leading to the Narrows. We hiked in the water about 2 miles and then turned back.

Did this after Angels Landing. Went about half mile up the River into the Narrows. The water never got much over knees. Saw Mitt Romney Hiking with family.

Short easy hike to Mesa Arch. It is one of the best views i have ever seen.

Very short hike but a fun stopping point. My 5 year old was surprised and proclaimed, “We are done already?!” Our kids quickly tipped their heads back and stuck out their tongues to catch the falling water drops. Pretty views, nice and cool under the water and shade, quick hike. Add it in with a few other hikes since it’s so short.

We hiked this with our four kids ages 5, 6, 8, and 10 and we all loved it! Variety of terrain but totally doable. The views of the canyon were amazing! We even spotted some mountain goats. Do this hike, you won’t regret it!

Can’t beat the views or the experience! You can make this as long a hike as you want. We went through the narrows and stopped and had lunch on the banks. Definitely rent the boots, socks, and walking stick. Saw a lot of people take an unexpected plunge! It’s a must do (if weather permits) at Zion!

Great hike! Definitely rent the special water hiking boots they rent around town because they somehow, magically, keep you very secure on the wet rocks. It's like they have suction cups on the bottom or something, though I don't think that's the secret. They also keep your feet warm in the very cold water. This hike is as hard as you want it to be, and we hiked much farther than 2 miles. I think it's 16 if you go from the top down, which I would love to try some day. Fewer people that way, I'm sure, though I never mind sharing my hike with other people.

Great view best in the afternoon with full sunlite

Walked out to see the Indian art panel. Very nice one actually. Very defined. It's worth the walk out here and isn't far from the parking lot. The Wolfe ranch has an interesting history to it too.

Took this short walk while on our drive thru the park roads. Pretty neat to see this huge boulder perched like it is. Easy walk.

I didn't walk out this whole trail. I went down a ways to get a view towards the east, but that was it. The Green River overlook is better than this one I think. You can't even see the Colorado river from here?? Was not impressed.

Short and sweet!

Short steep walk to weeping rocks
Worth the hike
Amazing views and cooling off in weeping water

Breathtaking. Took the 6am bus from the Visitors Center and had the canyon to ourselves. Would recommend trekking poles for balance and high quality closed toe water shoes.

It’s like walking on wet bowling balls. Get good hiking shoes and enjoy the cool canyons air.

Crowded, paved, flat. Not much of a workout but beautiful.

Beautiful hike, the toughest part is the initial entrance upwards, otherwise it's fairly easy. We arrived at 6:45 am, plenty of parking. We got to see the sun rising against the landscape, it was not busy and extremely peaceful. We also got to see a family of mountain goats up close!

Such an awesome hike. When I went it flash flooded the night before so super murky. Made it more difficult to walk through the water.

Pretty cool experience and different from anything else I’ve ever done! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is the crowds!! I’ve heard going early is the way to beat them. We probably got started around 10 and by that point it was already insane. I hiked about 10 miles round trip and did it in my chacos. Several people had gotten the fancy water shoes from the visitor center. While the water wasn’t that cold, I would suggest them if you worry about balance/ankle support. I didn’t always feel so confident in my chacos and had a couple close calls. Definitely must do once for the experience.

Nice easy hike but did the straight through hike to all three arches sand dune to broken arch to tapestry

This is a very popular area for a lot of people. If you hike top down you know you are almost done just by how busy it gets. This hike gives you a very small glimpse of what the whole narrows section really is. A lot of people tell me how much they love the narrows but only see this 1 or 2 miles of it. The best can only be seen if you hike top down, or hike way farther than what you are supposed to on this hike. Top down Narrows is best hike in Zion and probably Utah. This is just a small small taste.

My all time favorite hike just the scenery lost track of time and was out there with my brother and cousins it was 9 at night no light but our phones and only the stars over the narrows walls to guide us out most memorable moments in my life and then hit “Casa de Amigos” after...

So more of a park and look. This is a great picture and experience on the way up towards observation point or hidden canyon. It is cool to see the constant rain of water. However, dont make this your only reason of riding the bus out there.

I think this is a fine hike to do, especially if you are seeing Zion for the first time. However, Angles Landing and Observation Point have far superior views to this. This is a short hike, and easy for kids. However I just do not seeing this more than a 2 stars when there is so much Zion has to offer.

Just did this hike with my husband and two daughters (9&4). I was a little worried before we got there because i had read it was a difficult hike once in the river. Both my kids did great and had the best time! The views are incredible!! I would say this was easy-moderate in difficulty. There were some small sections where he current was going pretty good and since you are walking against it you really had to pay attention to where you were stepping etc. My husband walked with our 4 year old most of the time through these areas where the current was stronger. Otherwise she did pretty good on her own. Definitely will go back again! We did rent the walking sticks in Springdale. We wore our own shoes though. My husband and 9yr old wore older sneakers and my 4yr old and I both wore a hiking type sandal, which I thought was great! We all had no issues with our shoes.

It is not only great for kids...it's a giant playground for adults!! Really super for a short morning or late afternoon trip!!
