Hiked from the South Campground. Great views of the lower part of the canyon. Stayed for sunset then hiked back to camp. Trail is easy to follow. Some steep drop offs. Great shorter hike close to the entrance without needing to get on the bus.

This hike is awesome! There is a fairly extreme element of danger due to the huge drop offs on either side of the trail, but it makes for a very exciting hike with great views at the end! This trail is extremely crowded especially once you reach the top and the chains.

I did this hike in the dark so I didn't the best view of the pools. I have heard they are not as green as they look in pictures due to photographers adding filters to their photos.

Don't go in when it is raining! I is very wet and cold in the canyon (not to mention the danger of flooding!) I did get some mild hypothermia doing this hike on a rainy day in September. The trail is also 10 miles round trip not 2. I would totally do it again though because the canyon is amazing!

I suppose because we had just hiked the extremely quite North Rim of the Grand Canyon and Capital Reef National Park the days before, I was really taken aback by the Disney like feel of this hike. Don't get me wrong, it was stunning but I absolutely enjoyed it 100 percent more when we climbed down to the river and walked along there. It's obvious who is walking the Narrows because they rush down the paved path barely enjoying the Riverside walk and honestly, some people were just flat out rude. Also, get to the parking early in the park. We arrived at 8am and it was getting already tight.

An amazing hike. Spend the money and get the boots, neoprene socks and a hiking stick. We had two sticks each and they were very much used. Enjoy!

Cool walk, very crowded. Middle and Upper pools are currently closed due to flooding.

Loved it! The canyon was beautiful!

Wife and I loved it! If you don’t hike much it can be a bit strenuous, but I still tend to recommend this one to anyone (beginners included). The ending makes it all worth it!

a great accomplishment and great workout

Beautiful hike. Make sure you hike to the end of the trail and see the funky water carved “circle room”.

Great National Park.

Hiked in early September out to Big Spring. DCF was 35 and ambient temperature low of 60 and high of 85. Water got thigh high in one location about half a mile from Big Spring. Conditions were great and the rented shoes, socks and pole were appreciated. Started at day break and had the trail mostly to ourselves after Orderville Canyon. A must do if in Zion NP. You will be wet and tired at the end but awe inspired

Nice walk along the Virgin River that leads to the beginning of the narrows hike. Great views of the canyon floor and towering canyon walls.

Rock fall had blocked access to the upper and middle emerald pools but this trail is still worth the time. Great photo opportunity on the bridge across the Virgin River. This is a popular trail and will be crowded but it is wide enough to accommodate

Beautiful walk/hike along the Virgin river to the beginning of the Narrows. There is a paved path, and you can also leave the path and hike right next to the river (for most of the route, which we did.). We went early, and during the week, and it was less crowded. Would definitely do this again, and would be prepared with water shoes and walking sticks to hike part of the narrows!

Wow! I hit this puppy early in the morning with some snow sprinkles and I’m glad I left when I did. Boy does it get toasty on the ascent. Easy wide trail, but super steep in sections. Very beautiful views. It also gets CRAZY busy as the day unfolds, which makes you require a bit more patience. After we reached the top, we broke off on another trail for another 2 mi or so. Quite remote & beautiful!!

I have to add that so many people don’t eat the right shoes and they bring little to no water. I personally find that absolutely insane. Do some prep work and don’t put others at risk because you need help.

Great hike !!!

Nice short hike away from the crowd. We started at 7:30 am and only encountered another coupe on the way back. You’ll get a little sand workout.

It was very good but gets to be more of the same pretty quickly. The walking stick turned out to be important.

Amazing hike. Make sure you rent boots and a walking pole from Zion Outfitters right outside the park. Best $24 I ever spent

We went in September. It was not too crowded or too cold. Water flow was low. Watch our for the rocks and sometimes the water was waste high but a great hike. You can go for as far as you like and turn around. There is a fork in the trail to the right as you go up. It’s a narrow canyon with little water falls and huge boulders. Worth the detour

Easy and quick hike, and a hidden gem! We did it after observation point, it was the perfect little hike to end our day. Beautiful, not a lot of people, and super fun!

This is part of the hike to get to the actual Narrows. Nice scenery, easy paved road

What a great little hidden gem! If you’re taking the Zion shuttle, get off at Canyon Junction (stop 3) and walk up the side of the road away from the Visitors Center. This is an unmarked trail that starts at a parking lot just before the road turns into the series of switchbacks.

Follow the dirt path a short distance and you’ll start seeing some small boulders to navigate over. Once inside, you’ll see a beautiful little pool and waterfall that you’ll likely have all to yourself. It’s a quiet escape from the crowded park.

We did notice some cat prints, so keep an eye out for wildlife, especially early in the morning.

This was a very short, paved trail. There wasn’t much water in the pools. If you’re an experienced hiker, I would recommend exploring other Zion options over this.

The Narrows was one of the more rewarding hikes in Zion. I thought it was more difficult than the Subway hike due to the strong current and cloudy water, but that’s just my opinion.

There is beautiful scenery the entire length of the trail and you should definitely complete the full route. You’ll know when you get there by the views. There’s some light rock climbing involved, but nothing a moderately experienced hiker can’t handle. Standard hiking shoes and a walking stick will be all the gear you need.

Definitely start EARLY because it is one of the most popular routes and it gets quite crowded and you might stuck behind other slower groups.
