Amazing!! Start early and you won’t see anyone! Layer! Water is cold!!!

A good trail with a gorgeous view! Some steep points with loose gravel type rocks, but nothing too difficult to descend. Just be warned if you’re a hiker who likes to hike in chacos, going down those declines can be a little bit sketchy. I sprained my ankle about 3 miles in but it was still doable to go in and out. One of the best views at Zion in my opinion.

Low water level and some difficult scrambling at the end to get there. Beautiful hike and waterfall.

Great for a walk or bike ride. River access points along path. 6 July 2020 - apparently there is some bacterial investigation occurring related to the river water. Swimming in the river was not recommended.

No matter how hot, you can jump off at any point on the trail to cool off in the Virgin River.

Shallow pools to chill. Can go farther if you go a bit higher over the canyon to get over the small waterfall area.

Very busy hike. Be prepared for crowds. Recommend having a stick for stability during all the river crossings. Beautiful and the water is refreshing in the heat.

Best view with a fairly easy hike. Ample parking too but better off having a 4WD or AWD to get there

I did this as a combo with the Cockeye Falls trail and also the Triplets. I first went out to the hoodoo in the slickrock southwest of Lost Peak. While cool, I wouldn't say it's necessarily worth doing this. I didn't research well enough to see what I was going out too. After the hoodoo, I decided to ascend the South side of lost peak to save time/distance, however there were some sketchy sections on the slickrock. This was similar to a south Ariel Peak ascent. I then descended the north side (the main route) of Lost Peak, and it would have been much easier to climb up as there were no sketchy slickrock sections, just some vertical downclimbs and a sand slope. I then cut east across slickrock (easy) to the base of the ascent up the Triplets. This ascent sucked, as there is plenty of bushwacking and sand. After you hit the saddle it's pretty easy getting up the rest of the way. The descent down the sand slope was quick and easy though!

Fun short hike with beautiful pools and a small waterfall at the end. There is a bit of bouldering just before the falls but we managed just fine with our four boys 3, 7, 10 and 12.

Lovely trail with lots of places to access the virgin river. Incredible views!

Great trail, easy to get to and a nice moderate hike all the way to Observation point. The views are amazing at the point! Highly recommended

Very nice paved path along the Virgin River with spots to access the river. More of a walking/bike path than a hike.

Wow this is an awesome trail! Bring a swimsuit as there are a couple of dammed up pools by the waterfall that are deep enough to fully swim in. Awesome tadpoles all along the way. A bit sandy so wear some water shoes like chaco’s. We took our three year old and 1 year old in hiking packs and were able to make it the whole way with no real problems.

Fun hike! My kids loved it! They spent a lot of time playing in the river and cooling off on a hot afternoon. Completely paved and easy walk, flat. Very busy with both hikers and bikers. Some of the bikers were riding very fast and approached without warning - be alert and on guard. Very nice scenery!

We called this trail The Narrows Junior - similar terrain with different views

Beautiful hike! We got to the trailhead about 6:15 this morning and had it to ourselves. A few steep spots to hike up on the way back, but overall, an easy trail! We met lots of people coming back about 9am.

Beautiful trail! We didn’t want to wake up at 2am to try and do the Narrows/Angel Lansing so opted for this hike instead. It’s quite easy, just following a guided path along. The view at the end is spectacular! We drove our Ford Fusion all the way and were able to get out ok.

Paved trail with river access and amazing views of Zion. Dog friendly. Bring sunscreen and bug spray, also a camera! Follow me on Instagram @nathan_vanengen for photos and find other fun adventures in the southwest

We biked this trail with kids. Youngest was 5 and although he walked a few times because of the hills, it was still perfect. Several places to access the river to jump in and play.

Drove from San Diego to Zion Utah. Arrived Zion Gate lodge around 11pm and just parked and wait there till gate is open around 6am. We started hiking 6:30am from the narrow thru the river all the way to the end to the waterfalls. We are the 1st people arrived in the waterfalls. Total hike was 9.5 miles. It was amazing and unexpected hike. Totally worth it. If you love nature and walking in the water non stop. Then go for it.

Went a few days ago on the 22nd and it was a blast. Rented a pedal assist bike at the local Zion Outfitter at 9 am then rode 8 miles in. It was a pretty hot day but the hike was worth it and leads you right up to the narrows which will cool you off.

With covid restrictions arrive before 4am and drive in on scenic drive and get in line. They maybe let 200 cars in - first 99 get to park in narrows parking lot, others can hike in a max of 3 miles. Depends on where you are in line. Hike is on the road and flat and well worth it. No need to rent shoes if do what mist do and hike up 1-2 mules. Farther up rocks get slippery. Use hiking poles, make hiking much steadier. Enjoy

We just walked the entire road up to the narrows because there was no parking. Waste of money. Waste of a trip. Awful day. Awful walk. Awful mood. Would not bother coming back here.

On June 24, we were able to access the Scenic Drive at 6pm. It has been well documented that it is impossible to access the trails along the Scenic Drive unless you go before dawn (during this current phase). However, what is less advertised is that the Rangers remove the road blocks at 6pm and do not police the area until dusk. We were able to do this trail and enjoy some time in the Narrows with very little fuss and pretty ideal temps!
