Current Conditions for the Zion Narrows

Springtime in The Narrows means warmer air temperatures and longer days to explore the canyon's grandeur. The river water is COLD snowmelt, however, and most folks require wetsuits or drysuits to hike comfortably. Depending on seasonal snowmelt rates, river levels sometimes become dangerous, forcing the Park to close The Narrows at times. To find out if The Narrows is open, check out the USGS website.
