1/10/17 great scenary for sunset. quick and easy. parking can be limited. would recommend due to ice on other trails at Zion.

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!

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.

Unbelievable view when you get to the top. Main parking lot is hopeless, try going a bit ahead of tunnel to grab a roadside spot. The rocks may get slippery after rain/ snow. Very easy hike leading to an amazing end!

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.

Nice and short trail, with spectacular views at the end. There are a couple dropoffs on the side of the trail, so be careful with your footing in a few places. There are 10 parking spots right at the end of the tunnel (if you're coming from the park), with some overflow parking further up the road. I'd recommend getting here early - we ran into a bit of a traffic jam when we were descending through some of the more narrow passageways.

Breathtaking scenery and views! An excellent choice for a beginners hike, short and easy. Quite crowded on a cold December day but fun :)

Great backpack to see Zion back country

Did it in the winter. Very cool, bring traction.

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.

Fun, short hike with fantastic views! There's are quite a few dropoffs on the side of trail, so just be cautious with young children and those with a fear of heights. We saw more than one adult freaking out a bit about dropoffs.

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.

Very short hike with a great view relative to the effort of the hike. Limited parking and was fairly busy in middle of the day.

Hold on to the chain!

Awesome short hike in Zion. View of Zion Canyon was nice. Took less than 30 minutes to reach the overlook. Not ADA accessible though. Limited parking. There are overflow parking down the road. You can also park alongside the Hwy that permits.

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.

Great easy hike. We ended up making it in 1 hour and 40 Mins out and back. Definitely recommend for a quick beautiful walk by the river

This hike is awesome - very easy to follow and very little elevation gain with amazing views. However it was really crowded just before sunset on a cold December day, so I bet it’s crazy on a nice summer day. The views are amazing though!

A beautiful hike with otherworldly views of Zion. Every turn looked completely different and stunning in its own way. We stayed in campsite 4 the week of Thanksgiving. It got pretty chilly at night but during the day the weather was perfect.

beautiful hike, way too crowded though. Very easy, and paved. Watch out for the squirrels. They make it impossible to stop for a snack :-)

Nice short walk along the river. Accessible for wheelchairs as fully pathed. Is very heavily trafficked. If want to go far into the narrows you can hire waterproof boot and trousers from the visitor centre for the next day.

Nice short trail with great overlook of Zion. Was very busy trail even in mid November. Also limited parking but there is some alongside the road, but this was also nearly full up.

Peaceful hike at the end of the day. We did it in the evening and were given quite the show by Zion. The sun setting on the Watchman Mt was beautiful.
