One of the hardest things I've ever accomplished! Once you get past the first mile or so the crowds thin way down, and it's just you in a long canyon hallway! Absolutely an incredible experience. Try to make it to the turn around point, it'll...More

I am not sure about the cost of car vs. people. I guess check the website. With regards to what to take along, treat it like a hiking day. There are lots of places to stop and rest on huge boulders and take photos and have a snack and a drink. My husband and I each took a smaller backpack and carried two bottles of water each. Plus, we took our lunch, some energy bars, jerky, and nuts. We did not have "dry" packs, so we put everything we wanted to stay dry into double zip lock bags...including our phones and camera. This was a good call, because he stepped wrong and slipped off a rock and went down in the water - almost under water. It wasn't deep, but he just lost his footing For layering, we started with a light weight fleece and under it had t-shirt and then a tank top. We needed the fleece with shorts on the bottom. We went in October. By the middle of the afternoon, we were down to our tank tops. But, needed the fleece when we started, as the sun does not get into the slot canyon and the water is cold. I would suggest taking along a pair of flip flops or other shoes that are easy to carry. You can change into your water shoes after you walk the mile to the start of the Narrows. And, when you come out of the river you will be happy to have something to change into that isn't wet. The shuttle ride is about 45 minutes, so it's nice to be dry for that trip, as well. Enjoy!!!
