Great hike! Do not enter without proper shoes. I did the Narrows twice. Make sure you wear good shoes, because you are going through water for miles, and the canyon floor is rocky and slippery. If you are serious about this hike, take several hours....More

Wear waterproof shoes; go early in the busy season as it gets packed and crowded; wear thin long sleeve top if you go early

What an amazing site to see. The shoes/neoprene socks/walking stick are a must. We got ours at Zion Adventure Co. I brought my socks/shoes in a plastic bag and walked the first paved part in flip flops (in and out). We got started at ~9a...More

This would be a really bad idea. It would be way too easy to lose your footing. You could end up crushing your baby. Would highly recommend NOT doing that.

Hi Hokie - If you are at Zion during "the season" you can't drive a private vehicle past the Lodge, and can only drive TO the Lodge with a special "red" permit. Your wife can ride the shuttle with you to the final stop... More

Agree with prior answer. You can hike a good 4+ hours in and back out without a permit. As to water level, last week it was running at about the rate of 45 cubic feet per second (CFS). We were told anything below 70 is... More
