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.

Being scared of Heights, i was nervous about doing this. But it was not as bad as i thought it was going to be. Go early, we caught the first shuttle there. It was not that busy yet. The hike up to where Angels Landing starts, is the most difficult.

Awesome. Most inspiring, impressive, risky, spectacular view, trail I have hiked. It is only risky if you don’t take your time, do dumb things, or wear inappropriate footwear. I don’t know what I can add to the thousands of five star reviews but it is truly a memorable and taxing hike to the top. On the day I ascended I was one of the only people I saw with gray in his beard and hair! It is strenuous but worth the hike/climb. I did this with my son when he was 16 or 17 years old and it is still one of our most memorable experiences. Highly recommended, although if you have a fear of heights you may want to avoid this one. it really is safe with a chain guide on posts in all the appropriate places. But, the drop off is straight down at about 1000 feet on either side of the ridge you where you spend the most taxing time of the hike. View from the top down the valley awe inspiring! This is one you’ll want to tell everyone about.

This one scared me as it started raining towards the end. The views were gorgeous.

Have done this by foot and by bike. Paved, but scenic and not super crowded. A great way to get some time in the park right from the main visitors center.

I’m wasnt a huge hiker when I did this but I loved it. Years and hikes later, this is still one of my all time favorite hikes

Wow this was insane. I’m afraid of heights so I had a few minor panic attacks, but I’m SO thankful I did this hike. Many hikers passed me and were very encouraging. We went in July which is monsoon season and we got caught on the top by a thunderstorm. It was fun though.

Trail was closed due to recent flooding. I was disappointed that I wasn’t able to hike it. We were told that parts of the trail were destroyed, so it will be a while before it reopens.

Best hike I’ve done but the kids at the top really scared me

Amazing! One of my favorites hikes ever (along with Mist Trail in Yosemite). Really fun rock scramble type hike, and GREAT views. I was a little nervous from the pictures and descriptions, especially because the whole family (no small kids) was going and I didn't want to lose anyone, but it was not as scary once you were doing it because they have chains for you to hold on to at all the narrow parts. Everyone LOVED it! It's also not as difficult as some other famous day hikes, so if you hike regularly, you won't be too exhausted.

Absolutely phenomenal but definitely not for the faint of heart. There were a few times on the chained portion where you have few feet of space to walk with sheer cliffs on either side. Definitely try to go early in the morning because 1. the heat gets up there later in the day and 2. the sheer amount of people is insane around the early afternoon.

My group began at around 8am and finished at 1:30pm but we took our time at the peak. We were there around memorial day and there were far too many people on the climbing portion at a time. They definitely need extra rangers there before something goes awry. Bring good climbing shoes and take deep breaths during your climb, the view at the top is so worth it!

We did this as a 2 day backpack starting at Lava Point and ended at the Grotto. This trail was awesome. You get some great views while being very secluded in comparison to the rest of the park. There was water at West Rim Spring. We didn’t check Sawmill Spring and the park ranger told me that Potato Hollow wasn’t flowing. We carried 4L of water each and made it just fine to the last water source which we camped near (campsite 1). If you want to do Angel’s Landing, do it at the end of the trip. The trail intersects the Angel’s landing trail and you miss having to climb all the way up there from the very bottom so it’s a good opportunity to do it. Anyway, highly recommend this trail! It’s absolutely gorgeous.

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.

We created a loop by combining the Kayenta Trail and Grotto Trail, while visiting the lower, middle and upper pools. Just short of 4 miles. Great views and experience for the whole family.

Truly an amazing experience

Beautiful views! Did it in July during the middle of a hot afternoon. Not unbearable but it was hot. Make sure you take lots of water if you are considering doing the same.

Exactly what a true thrill seeker should be doing for a hike! Strenuous with an awe inspiring payoff. Bring lots of water, preferably a hydration bladder with at least 2L in it and get ready to work!

Quick, easy & breathtaking!

Great hike. A little tricky in a few areas but well worth the adventure! Amazing pic opportunities and the water felt amazing!

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.

Go early! YOU CAN DO ITTTTT!

Went with family on June 20th, was hot but not something I'm not use too. I was pretty much carry my 40L backpack just to carry lots of water and food for a group of 9. It actually worked out because everyone had those little day packs with water. I saw people climbing trail with one little bottle of water, on my way down would find people going up really dehydrated; luckily I was able to help. Don't be to fearless with the hike. But honestly it's breathtaking and life changing. I got up to the highest point on the rock. Sudden wind felt scary. I hope my information helped you. Stay safe & hydrated!!!

Crowded, paved, flat. Not much of a workout but beautiful.
