Very shaded, not very difficult trail. Enjoyed it. No people past where you past the first creek which made it serene, but carry a stick. A large amount of spider webs ha. Trailhead is difficult to find if you're not familiar with the area.

We really enjoyed this hike. It was peaceful and I bet really beautiful in the spring. Loved going in heat of summer because it's totally shaded. Be sure to take trail to the narrows -- we packed a lunch and sit on boulders --- got to see 3 kayaks go through. Getting to the narrows was strenous but worth the effort. Little hard to find but we used WAZE and it took us right to the trail head.

Low traffic, water fall and creek a big plus. Lots of spider webs

Awesome hike to the narrows. Perfect for running the first bit and then climbing down the last little steep part

hiked this trail in June. Get's steep at the end but a great reward when you arrive at the Gorilla rapids. If you're lucky you see white water kayaking in full action.

Walked this trail in late June. Loved it! Super magical beautiful and easy - except for the chigger carrying poison ivy growing into the trail on both sides for approx 30 percent of the distance. Next time I hike this trail will be in spring time or winter.

Great hike and views of the Green River. Boulders in the river are great to rest on once to the bottom and watch the kayakers go by.

Great little trail.... when you get to the Green River Narrows trail take the route to the right.... takes you to the Green River.... great area to have a snack or lunch l... if you're lucky you will catch a kayaker making his/her way down the center chute!

Solid hike ,lots to look at, several waterfalls to look at on the way down and large boulders to chill on at the base .

You'll get a good workout on the hike out.

Beautiful trail, I recommend the rope trail down to the falls. Hiked this in the rain. It was a small challenge with the ground and rocks being slick but had lots of fun! I loved the adventure and beautiful scenery.

Great trail and moderate hike. The end of the trail is a little underwhelming. The green river is nice but I would recommend going down the green river the steeper way. The ones you see in the pictures with ropes to help out. This was strenuous and sketchy but it adds some much needed adventure.

This is one of my favorite hikes. I love to take the steep trail down to the Narrows. It is quite a challenge and the ropes provided help keep you from falling. My dog lives it as well. Most weekends you can watch skilled paddlers go through the Gorilla and the other various rapids. Best to go with another person to help you cross the rushing waters at bottom.
