Cool and nice. Water is very urgent and fast. Fell down a couple times.

This is a unique hike. It is beautiful and worth the hike. I would definitely recommend the shoes pants and walking sticks.

Great little trail... Spent a week doing a lot of the areas trails.

The title of this hike is just for the paved walk before entering the canyon to wade through the river. This part is easy. Obviously the hike gets harder once you are wading through shin deep water which sometimes reaches waist deep or more depending on how far you go. In the fall for sure, I recommend renting shoes, socks, pants, and a hiking pole from an outfitter in Springdale as the water is cold and there is little sun. Anyone bothering to wade through the river should make it to wall street. It is the best portion of the canyon. It is not signed, so get a pamphlet from the outfitter. Access is via Zion's 40 minute shuttle bus ride. Parking is limited at the visitor center. Go early to avoid crowds and to be able to see where you are walking in the river.

I just did this one on 10/16. So glad the ranger recommended to go to one of the outfitters in town. We rented the dry pants, boots, a dry sack for out bags, and a pole, very worth it. The water was freezing and it can be very slippery and easy to roll an ankle if you don't have the proper footwear, the stick really helped to catch my balance a few times. The pant helped keep my pants underneath completely dry and warm too. The water was pretty much ankle to waist deep, I'm 5'8". there are also dry areas that you can walk in too to take a break from the water. We made it all the way up to the end of Wall Street, Wish I new the mileage to each point.

I guess my one mistake was I didn’t rent any equipment...the water was cold probably in the lower 50s. I couldn’t wait to get out of the water. The rocks have lots of algae on them making them slippery poles would have been helpful. The view was wonderful however.

Short but was able to get some beautiful shots

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.

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!

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

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.

My first proper hike up a running river thru beautiful 2000’ tall narrow sandstone canyons that have been formed over millions of years from the Virgin Rivers constant flow down South eventually ending in Lake Powell

Too many people, paved, something to pass the time but not a must do by any means.

Very short but cute. To start.

great little hike to start the day to the observation point. loved it with our group and have some fabulous pics.

tip do the short quick hikes first.

new rule of thumb for us.

Such an unique and beautiful trail. We went on the last Monday of September; we didn’t have as early of a start as we had planned and ended up catching the shuttle around 10:10, arrived at the Temple of Sinawava stop around 10:45. It was definitely crowded, but not Disneyland crowded. About 7 miles in, the crowd started to thin out. We turned around at about 8 miles in.
Definitely wear appropriate footwear and use a walking stick to help some of the river crossings where the water was moving fast. I got swim tights specifically for this hike and they worked out very well. With a short-sleeve shirt and a long-sleeve button up, they worked out fine for the most part.
I wish people would respect nature and fellow hikers by not vaping in the canyons :(

The water is not too cold in August, and make sure you have proper gears.

short steep shaded walk along a paved trail to the viewing platform which is cut into the cliff where water rains down from above. special but not a must do.
