The hike is great...even if you only do the first two miles. Expect LOTS and lots of people though, as this is one of the most popular hikes in the park. Amazing views and not that difficult.

The Narrows is the upper stretch of the Zion/North Fork Virgin River Canyon. As the name implies, this section of canyon is very narrow. The road ends at Temple of Sinawava and the paved Riverside Walk leads another mile to the gateway to the Narrows....More

I'm in good hiking condition, and this was streanous hike for me. It's hard to walk upstream, I would compare it almost to going through fresh snow of the same height. Do not go without pole/stick - it's absolutely necessary, people who I saw without...More

It’s about 10 minutes from lodge on shuttle. You can hike as far as you want and then come back to the road and take shuttle back. We hike in there about 3 hours.
