This is a permitted semi-technical hiking/canyoneering route through Oroville Canyon. Do not attempt this hike without a Zion wilderness permit.

This is a good trail for an introduction to canyoneering. The hike in is not very interesting. None of the obstacles required technical skills. A short rope and hand over hand is all that is required. The canyon is spring fed and not very cold. Hiking out via the Narrows was exhausting after the long hike just to get there. The strong current, large rocks and multiple river crossings require lots of effort. Overall a good hike but not spectacular.

A few little rappels and some pools to paddle through. It's great until the confluence....then the mass crowds in the Narrows.
