Fun trail! First time at Zion and was a perfect first hike. Really feels like you've accomplished something when you're finished aaaand you can stop along the river to cool off

Amazing views from the tops of each of the peaks. Only three stars because the map provided goes off trail through bushes and foxtails for a significant portion of the hike to the taller peak. The ascent to the taller peak gets kind of sketchy. Shoes with very good traction are a must. At some points, slipping could mean rolling or sliding down a long, steep sandstone incline.

This was a lovely hike of July 9, 2019, quite easy to do and with conveniently placed chains in the steeper exposed sections. Left at 1 pm in the noon heat of 90F, the summit didn’t feel much cooler. At this hour of day it wasn’t crowded at all. Took us 1 hour 25 up and 55 min down. Really loved to see how 5 young guys were bringing an elderly man this trail up on a wheelchair to the Scout Lookout, giving this handicapped person a chance to see the beauty of this place. Truly awesome scenery, highly recommended.

Beautiful and easy trail, amazing views!!!! Definitely I’ll come back to hike to the narrows.

Easy trial at the beginning, but moderate as you go up to Upper emerald pool. Worth the walk. Scenic views.

One of the best hikes I've ever done! Absolutely Beautiful! Cant wait to go back to Zion!

One of the most unique & amazing hikes in the country, let alone Zion, and absolutely worth doing - but only if you go early! Plan to be at the shuttle stop by 7 AM at the latest (we were there at 5:53 AM, and there was already a line) if you don't want to encounter big crowds, diminished views, and potentially unsafe conditions on the chains. If you do plan ahead and get there early, the experience will be truly stunning.

After the river walk, we walked in the water for 3 hours round trip. My son went up to the fork and he saw people keep going. We were wearing water shoes and walked with hiking poles. Many people were wearing rental water boots and walking with rental wooden sticks. You can get them at Zion gear rental by the main entrance. Water was refreshing at 103 degrees. We went at 1:00pm and left at 4:00pm and water level had gone up. Just be mindful and prepared to get wet to the belly.

Trail is incredibly fun and ranges from easy for the first 2/3rds to challenging toward the end. We were able to get our three kids up it (10, 7, and 1) with quite a bit of effort. The whole family loved the swimming pools and waterfall, the latter of which was running at the perfect speed to get under and slide down. Would definitely do it again.

Super fun hike!!! Got on the 6am shuttle going up was fun switchbacks and a good gain to keep you going. The chains to very top were easier going up as no one was coming down yet. Coming down was tricky just finding the break where you could go since it got busier. Definitely worth the effort the views are gorgeous!! 2:40 overall time with time spent sitting at top!

Epic hike. The chains/sharp drops make it very exciting. It’s extremely crowded, which leads to long lines going up and down.

Rocky trail in parts. Wear good shoes. Nice viewpoint for pics. Try to avoid the heat of the day.

We walked this one from the Grotto back to the Lodge after our Angels Landing hike. Made for a nice easy cool down on the way to a snack and a beer. Great alternative to just riding the shuttle down-canyon one stop.

Awesome views, worth the climb. Entered the trailhead this morning with my 19 yr old son, summited & returned in 3:10. Crazy amount of people even though we hit the trail at 7:30am. Switchbacks were better going down than up-Enjoy!!

Beautiful for photography, arrive during winter so we encounter snow.

Hiked up the west peak today with my husband and two grown boys. The trail all the way out to the peaks is a nice easy trail through the pines. Saw a lot of birds, lizards and even a small toad. Of course climbing the peak was strenuous, but worth the effort. We took the suggested route on this map and although very steep, was achievable. The views are incredible up there.

Spectacular trail, definitely one of the highlights of Zion NP. Leave early! We caught the first shuttle (6AM) and were on the trail by about 6:30. Easy approach, then it’s switchback time. The first set was tougher, In my opinion. After that, you’re in Refrigerator Canyon for a cool, breezy stretch before tackling Walter’s Wiggles, a stack of very short and steep switchbacks. To me, the Wiggles were easier than the opening switchbacks, just due to how short each leg of the Wiggles is. From Scout’s Lookout on up to the Landing, it’s scramble and chain work. Pay attention, take your time, be courteous, and enjoy your reward at the top! The return trip can be tricky, spend a good amount of time stopping and starting for choke points and traffic. Same rules as above; pay attention, take your time, be courteous. We had a good time, including some solid down time up top since it wasn’t really crowded yet. Weekends and holidays, all bets are off though. That first shuttle is key: you beat the crowds AND the heat.

Great trail! Would do again any day, just advice going as early as possible and catching one of the first buses leaving the visitor center, as it was cool while hiking up and only moderately warm on the decent back down.

Very difficult hike. There is a trail for the first mile. the next mile is bushwacking. Then a marked trail using stones which involves class 3 and class 4 climbing. There are some points with significant exposure. It's amazing how high and difficult it is to get to where the petroglyphs are. Crazy that they did it. Awesome views.

Highly recommend The Narrows! The trail is often closed due to dangerous currents and water levels. When it’s open, it’s a must-do in Zion. Young kids and inexperienced hikers can splash around in the water at the end of the riverside path, which is where you can first enter the river. Able-bodied and experienced hikers should continue at least as far as “Wall Street” (just beyond the fork in the canyon) approximately 2 hours up canyon. The crowds thin out the further you go, and the views only get better! We rented wooden walking sticks from Zion Adventure Co. which were really helpful while navigating the frequent river crossings. You can rent neoprene socks and boots there as well, but we just wore old tennis shoes and wool socks. The water can be cold, but it feels good on a hot day! Expect to find yourself in water most of the hike, from ankle-deep to waist-deep at times. You can do this one in the middle of the day because the steep canyon walls block most of the direct sunlight.

My daughter (17) and I took the 6:30 bus to the base of the trail. The first half a mile is easy, the next 1.5 miles is tough. Fight through it because it is an awesome hike with adventure and breath taking views! From top to bottom it took us 3 and a half hours.
