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.
