Very easy walk. Beautiful Canyon views!

Great views, no ice or snow! Short and family friendly!

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!

Beautiful views in the snow on 12.30.18

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.

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.

Easy trail and fun for all member of the fam. Old to young we were able to make the lower pool no problem.

This trail is short and relatively easy, with some impressive views at the top. Not too heavily trafficked, and it leaves from the Visitor Center so you don't have to worry about waiting for a shuttle.

Not too much to say about this one, other than that it is such a short and easily accessible hike that everyone should find a chance to do it while in Zion. The views are absolutely amazing! We found this one on a whim scrolling through All Trails, but I would have been super bummed to miss it now that I know how great it is. Pretty easy hike - did it with my five year old, and it was his second hike of the day. I would recommend the loop at the end. The views didn’t change too much, but the crowds gathered around at the main lookout point were much more dispersed on the loop.

Beautiful trail, not too crowded today. We did Angels Landing in the morning and this in the afternoon. It had amazing views and was the perfect way to end our day in Zion.

great for tourons.

Family and I enjoyed this hike. Easy to follow. Not super strenuous. Don't forget the scenic loop at the top! We went mid-day and the temperature was just right.

Completed this on 12/23/18. Fun rock scramble, waterfall easily accessible and actively flowing at a good rate at the end with gorgeous views looking up at the sheer rock faces.

Always a great hike with great views.

The River Walk is just beautiful & peaceful. Easy walk. With water.

Short trail up to the weeping cliffs. Easy, but narrow walk way with steep drop offs. Be mind full with kids & elders.

Great moderate hike. The loop trail at the top is especially fun - relatively flat with great views.

Not long, but lots of fun climbing over boulders and watching the steep mountain sides change color in the late afternoon light. Couldn't see the waterfall, but who cares--was an enjoyable hour plus just looking around. I'm sure it's busy in the season, but this Dec day, we had it to ourselves.

A series of switchbacks will guide you up to stunning panoramic views of the area! Expect to see many mule deer too.

3 bc this is just for the river walk, but 5 for the narrows. Bottom-Up isn’t an option to review on this app. A previous trip I did the river walk bc my friend wasn’t a big hiker plus the conditions borderline that time of year. The paved HC accessible route just not for me and wasn’t at all a good impression of what Zion has to offer. The longer harder hikes are a game changer for those capable and willing to work a little. Anyways this was one of 7 back to backI hikes I did in a 6 day period between Bryce and Zion. I rented gear and at this time of year there’s not a crowd in the river (and Subway permit odds extremely high if you do a two day gear rental). A few times you have no option but to be waist deep so the full drysuit was reassuring even though many times I was too warm. Walking stick very helpful to test depth and determine direction of walking or at times when the extra sturdiness helpful bc of the current.

Paved path with lots of areas to walk down to the river. We went Dec 12th and it wasn't too crowded. Great way to see the beginning of the narrows and looking up all you see is canyon walls. There was also dirt paths by the river you could walk but you do have to come up to the paved path at some points. We also saw the dipper bird! Very beautiful and peaceful hike, easy and wheelchair assable.

We went Dec 12th, there wasn't a lot of people but middle and upper pool is closed. We saw two waterfalls and it was very muddy/slippery at the pools. We also saw deer and turkeys while on our way in! Definitely a great hike.

This area has smaller parking than other trail heads. Short and steep but overall it took us around 30min in and out. We went Dec 13th and the trail was wet, not many people.

Not an experienced hiker and this trail was a perfect challenge. Took us around an hour and 50mins to complete. We went Dec 12th and there was a little mud in higher elevation, a little slippery. Loop is shorter than we thought, you can skip this and still see watchman point overlook.

Perfect hike for after you've done Angel's Landing in the morning. Easy out and back trail with beautiful up canyon views. Do yourself a favor and take the dry creek bed "shortcut" on your way back to the Visitor's Center.

Fun and easy hike while connecting into hidden canyon. Made a nice day combining scrambling, hiking, scenic views and some off-trail adventures if combine these two hikes.
