The Narrows Zion National Park

The Narrows is the narrowest section of Zion Canyon in Zion National Park, Utah. The Narrows in Zion National Park's most popular hike and one of the best slot canyon hikes in the world. It's pure fun and can be customized to suit any level of ability. The trail is the Virgin River. The canyon is so narrow, in many spots the river covers the bottom, meaning you have to wade or swim to continue. Plan to get wet. In fact, during the hot summer months, the fresh water makes this hike particularly pleasant. 

 

Rent the neoprene socks and boots from a nearby local shop to do this hike if you don't have any. Water temperature could go down. Get there as early as you can, or you will be fending off the crowds. It is about 3.5 miles in – past Orderville Canyon and through most Wall Street – you have to go at least to Wall Street, or it's not worth your time! Keep in mind you are hiking through the river, so this will add a considerable amount of time to your hike as you can't go very fast would honestly devote an entire day for this hike. As you continue up the river, the crowds lessen, and it was friendly with no one around, but beware the groups near the trailhead. Check the weather forecast before you go, and if there is a chance of rain anywhere, be advised not to hike – it can be sunny in the river, but rain elsewhere can still cause flash floods in the canyon.
