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 Reviews & Ratings

  • The narrows looked so inviting and appealing! I wish I had been able to go all the way, but had not gotten the special water boots and socks that are highly recommended. The water was very cool and refreshing..

  • Amazing experience to walk in water. Bring good water shoes(rocky) and a stick to walk for better balance while walking. Can do without these as well.

  • Amazing water hike but rocks are very slippery. Highly recommend using shoes that have great ankle support and a hiking pole/stick. The water is quite refreshing, especially on the hottest day in the canyon.

  • An amazing experience! Walking completely through the river with huge canyons surrounding you! Stop and take a swim at the deeper sections of the river! Pack water and snacks cause you can walk through the narrows for hours!

  • Multiple Times at Zions and first time at the Narrows. Late October hike was wonderful albeit chilly. Definitely worth renting water shoes and dry pants at a local business for the journey. Hiking in water is hugely fun, but you don't cover much ground. It is easy to spend an entire day (5 to 7 hours) on the hike if you keep wanting to see what is around the next bend!
