Nice path leading to the Narrows. We hiked in the water about 2 miles and then turned back.

Did this after Angels Landing. Went about half mile up the River into the Narrows. The water never got much over knees. Saw Mitt Romney Hiking with family.

Found the canyon full of interesting rock formations and made for a perfect up & back horseback ride.

Love this trail! Perfect for beginners! the lake is beautiful and you can continue on if you choose to other destinations from the lake. Tons of places to camp around the lake. Lots of trees perfect for hammocking too. We took our one year old and our friends brought their 18 month old. The kids loved it. Beware, TONS OF MOSQUITOS! Everything else was perfect!

Can’t beat the views or the experience! You can make this as long a hike as you want. We went through the narrows and stopped and had lunch on the banks. Definitely rent the boots, socks, and walking stick. Saw a lot of people take an unexpected plunge! It’s a must do (if weather permits) at Zion!

Great hike! Definitely rent the special water hiking boots they rent around town because they somehow, magically, keep you very secure on the wet rocks. It's like they have suction cups on the bottom or something, though I don't think that's the secret. They also keep your feet warm in the very cold water. This hike is as hard as you want it to be, and we hiked much farther than 2 miles. I think it's 16 if you go from the top down, which I would love to try some day. Fewer people that way, I'm sure, though I never mind sharing my hike with other people.

Nice quick hike to lookout for awesome views of lake and surrounding mountains.

Breathtaking. Took the 6am bus from the Visitors Center and had the canyon to ourselves. Would recommend trekking poles for balance and high quality closed toe water shoes.

It’s like walking on wet bowling balls. Get good hiking shoes and enjoy the cool canyons air.

Quick hike. Great breeze made it nice in the heat. Kids had fun at the top.

Such an awesome hike. When I went it flash flooded the night before so super murky. Made it more difficult to walk through the water.

Pretty cool experience and different from anything else I’ve ever done! The only reason I gave it 4 stars is the crowds!! I’ve heard going early is the way to beat them. We probably got started around 10 and by that point it was already insane. I hiked about 10 miles round trip and did it in my chacos. Several people had gotten the fancy water shoes from the visitor center. While the water wasn’t that cold, I would suggest them if you worry about balance/ankle support. I didn’t always feel so confident in my chacos and had a couple close calls. Definitely must do once for the experience.

This is a very popular area for a lot of people. If you hike top down you know you are almost done just by how busy it gets. This hike gives you a very small glimpse of what the whole narrows section really is. A lot of people tell me how much they love the narrows but only see this 1 or 2 miles of it. The best can only be seen if you hike top down, or hike way farther than what you are supposed to on this hike. Top down Narrows is best hike in Zion and probably Utah. This is just a small small taste.

My all time favorite hike just the scenery lost track of time and was out there with my brother and cousins it was 9 at night no light but our phones and only the stars over the narrows walls to guide us out most memorable moments in my life and then hit “Casa de Amigos” after...

Absolutely stunning if you go when the sun starts to rise. However, I won’t go back until fall as I was eaten alive by flies and mosquitoes everywhere.

Just did this hike with my husband and two daughters (9&4). I was a little worried before we got there because i had read it was a difficult hike once in the river. Both my kids did great and had the best time! The views are incredible!! I would say this was easy-moderate in difficulty. There were some small sections where he current was going pretty good and since you are walking against it you really had to pay attention to where you were stepping etc. My husband walked with our 4 year old most of the time through these areas where the current was stronger. Otherwise she did pretty good on her own. Definitely will go back again! We did rent the walking sticks in Springdale. We wore our own shoes though. My husband and 9yr old wore older sneakers and my 4yr old and I both wore a hiking type sandal, which I thought was great! We all had no issues with our shoes.

Nice, easy trail that leads to the beginning of the Narrows.

I highly recommend this hike. We rented the neoprene socks, boots and walking sticks the evening prior to the hike. They were very useful. Get an early start because it can get very crowded. The shuttles begin running at 7:10 and it takes 40 minutes to reach the hike. The shuttle will be full but don’t let that worry you. Most of the people were going to hike Angels Landing. Layer your clothing. The canyon can be cool early in the morning.

Such a fun trail/walk! Amazing views, beautifully flowing river your walking through, cool breeze, and in the afternoon the sun warms you from the chilly water. An absolute MUST!

great for the whole family.

Good first time backpacking trip for a 6 and 10 year old as it is only a mile and not much elevation change. There is a lot of traffic on this trail and not too much parking. Mosquitoes are out so bring spray. The nights are still in the low 40's so dress accordingly.

My kids (16& 14) and I did this hike on 6/5/18. it was AMAZING and the scenery was BEAUTIFUL! I do recommend to renting the hiking boots, water socks and walking stick. You will br walking up the Virgin River against the current and a lot of rocks.

excellent hike.just completed with a 14 y/o & 10 y/o

today was 100 at Zion. This was the perfect trail to start at 11 and carry me into the afternoon. I didn't want it to end and kept going and going probably 3-4 miles past the end of the trail. The problem was I was wearing these old beach shoes that have been sitting in my garage since 2012. They were already brittle and worn out and the insole was holey. Needless to say by the time I thought, "I've gone pretty far," the right shoe broke. A couple miles down the left one broke. Instead of putting on my nikes which were in my bag, I did the last mile and a half barefoot. Today was a day of challenges. And pain. my feet hate me

Started at the beginning near Utah Lake, the first 2 miles is very nice then the roots have made the trail bumpy from Geneva Rd to State street. The next section is boring until you get to the mouth of the Canyon I stopped a Mt Timp Park. It is very lovely there with full rest room facilities and picnic tables and grass to relax on. Quite a few people and dogs on the trail. I would recommend riding very early in the morning or on a week day overall a nice little ride

Nice easy hike on a path up to the narrows. You can also hike off the cement path up the side of the river if you want something different. It gets very crowded. Nice views along the way.

Do I need to schedule or permits for this? Thank you
