About The Narrows, Zion National Park

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 - Write a Review

  • Breathtaking. Literally and figuratively. We chose the South route after hiking up Angels Landing the day before. Get there EARLY to catch the sunrise through the canyon and to beat the traffic. Easily one of the best and most unique hikes.

  • This hike is so memorable because you are walking in varying depths of water the entire time. Do you run the risk of being swept away in a flash flood? Yup. Will you be cold on a 100 degree day? Yup. Will you scratch, bruise, and twist your ankles along the way? Yup. Is it all worth it? Absolutely. Advice: Don't forget a walking stick - it will prove perhaps the most important tool you carry into the Narrows!

  • Visited in Nov and the highest the water came up to, was just above the knee. Definitely rent the gear - walking stick, neoprene socks, water resistant pants, and shoes $44!

  • This was an amazing hike. Would Do it again and again!!! It was so much fun!

  • Great hike up the river. You can go pretty much as far or as short as you like. This is in my top three favorite hikes! You have to check it out if you are in Zion. I recommend renting boots and a stick from town. $20 to prevent a twisted ankle is a great deal! I also recommend starting early to avoid shuttle lines and crowds.
