Incredible photo opportunity. You hike deep into a canyon with walls towering up maybe a thousand feet. The hike is almost entirely done while wading in ankle to knee high water. Best to use boots designed for water. Best, fly fishing boots with studs, second...More

This was the favorite activity of a ten day vacation to Arizona/Utah. The majesty of Zion National Park is amazing. During the summer you must take park shuttles to the overlooks and trail heads, and although they aren't air conditioned, they were constantly running and...More

Better than expected. Go early but watch the weather. Hiking stick and correct footwear a must. You must see it.

The Narrows is cool. Rent the shoes they recommend at the entrance to the west gate of the park and take the shuttle to the Narrows stop. Go as deep up the Virgin River as you want...wading, rock hopping, and criss-crossing in ankle deep to...More

We regretted not being prepared fully to do more of this hike! We only brought sandals and sneakers to hike in. Definitely plan on renting waterproof boots or bringing your own. Trekking poles would also be well advised. Beautiful hike!! People of all ages were...More

No but it will be a little cooler so I would pack something long sleeved on your hike. You walk in the shade probably 60-70% of the time plus the water temp will be chilly.
