We did the narrows yesterday. I rented the boots..my father did it in water shoes. We both agreed that I had too much and he didn't have enough as far as footwear. The boots you can rent help big time, but I think you can...More

I have hiked on every continent, but Zion Narrows ranks among the best. Hiking up the river is what makes it truly unique. We are well into our 60's and went about a mile up Wall Street (past the side trip up Orderville Canyon). I...More

I didn’t plan on doing any of the Narrows because it is rated as strenuous. However, you can go in at the end of the Riverside Hike and just go in as far as you’d like. It’s a good idea to have a walking stick...More

The hike into 'The Narrows' is amazing! The Bottom-Up hike (permit not required) begins at Temple of Sinawava, it's a 1-mile walk on the land and then the hike starts in water! I was able to reach until Wall Street (point # 4 of 5)...More

Did this hike with our 12yo daughter and 10yo son. All of us loved it. Hike to the beginning of the narrows is paved and easy with great views. The narrows were stunning with the canyon walls towering on either side. Recommend renting the shoes...More

My friends and I rented boots, neoprene socks and poles to hike The Narrows. All were worth it, but I'd say the pole was the most critical to keep your balance and not take a swim. From the time we got off the bus until...More

Walk through the river literally for several miles. Rent the water proof hiking boots and take a walking stick. Very rocky walking through the river so the walking stick comes in handy but so much fun. Take plenty of water and a few snacks. The...More

At the northern end of Zion Canyon the red cathedral-like walls grow closer and closer until the Virgin river fills the canyon floor, and the only way to hike further north is to wade through its icy water. The National Park Services close the Narrows...More

We woke up at 4am to prepare and were hiking by 7:30am for the 16 mile journey, that truthfully was 20+ with all the zigzagging we had to do (luckily, the water was very low in most areas). The hike was 11 hours total -...More

I recommend calling one of the outfitter stores in Springdale. They’ll be able to let you know the water temp.

Sorry for the delay in answering your question. My best answer is the best time to hike the narrows is probably Summer. In the Summer the water is at its warmest and usually the water levels are lower than during the Spring... More
