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.

Did this hike and added the Grotto Trail. The Upper Pool is crowded and is difficult to get pics without people in the Pool. Many People were in the Pool with no Consideration for others taking photos. I wanted pictures of the Pool, not pictures of people in it. Not to mention your not even suppose to be in the Pool.

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.

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.

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.

This train is hot but there is a great place to cool off at the top AND when you get done, get in the water! The Virgin River is relatively warm and shallow and a great way to end the hike.

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.

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

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.

Absolutely amazing trail. It gets hot on a July afternoon but would totally do this one again the views along the whole trail were stunning and the “end” of the trail was an amazing lookout point for the south part of the park. I took some amazing photos. Absolutely beautiful!!!

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...

It’s really pretty if you go to the upper pools, there are a lot of people and kids who almost knock you over coming up. Beautiful sights the whole way up the upper pool is breathtaking. Please remember not to go in the pools as it is a source of water for the wildlife

Quick. Shady. Some good views. VERY crowded. Simple hike to do with the family. We seem to stop in at the pools after doing a few other hikes.

Nice easy trail, everywhere in Zion is scenic, if your not in great shape this is a trail most people can easily do.

Nice, fairly easy trail. When we went the pool levels were down so not as scenic as it normally would be in the spring.

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.

Loved it. Very peaceful when children not present. Had a group but they only stayed for 30 min. Definitely some scrambling involved. Saw some people Boulder to the right, tall peeps will be fine, short peeps should go left and then cross water, you don’t need to get wet - there are rocks to step in. Took a nap and read with the beautiful sounds of the fall. Highly recommend, not very many people.

Great hike in Zion, trail leads to three different stops. You can take the paved trail to the first pool and then turn back, or go on to the other two pools. The trail gets more difficult after the first pool.

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