The Narrows - Review
As the name suggests, the Narrows is the narrowest, yet popular, section of Zion Canyon. Ranked number 5 in National Geographic's list of America's Best 100 Adventures, this scenic hike is a must when you visit Zion National Park. The walls of the canyon are around thousand feet high and the hike across the gorge goes through the Virgin River, which is about twenty to thirty feet wide. While there is a paved road along the Riverside Walk, you can only see the Narrows from there. The real fun lies in actually hiking through it. There are two ways to hike through the Narrows- bottom up from the Temple of Sinawava, which does not require any permit and is recommended, and top down from Chamberlain's Rance, which requires a permit.

The Narrows, Zion National Park Reviews
This was one of the most relaxing hikes I have ever done. It was beautiful, interesting experience. I recommend renting water boots and a wooden hiking stick (Zion outfitters). People without sticks were tripping and loosing balance and metal sticks will rust and bend! The boots were a must!!!
Great hike through the water. Can be strenuous for those that are not used to hiking. Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds. We had neoprene socks which helped a bunch. A walking stick is also very handy to have. This is a lot of fun! Go to the end to see some great scenery.
Wish I had been prepared to walk through the water. It was a cold morning and I had no cold weather or wet weather gear. Beautiful to walk through the water and discover what other mysteries are just around the corner from the rocks. I would definitely do it again
Really cool. Recommend anyone visiting the park to at least go 20 to 30 minutes up the river to check it out. Wear shoes with think soles because the rocks are large and will hurt your feet. Recommend a hiking stick. The views are amazing. The water is cold and I recommend bringing a towel to dry off if you get wet.
7.13.17 - the water is cold. I recommend wearing old sneakers that are not porous to keep the smaller rocks and pebbles out of your shoes. You can rent insulated boots, which are great, but it's not necessary. Go early. Really really early. 1st wave early or it'll get too crowded, plus, you want enough time to explore. Bring the usual, food, water and a long sleeve for the non-sunny parts of The Narrows.
