The Zion Narrows is world famous for its sculpted sandstone walls and breathtaking beauty. Sections of the 2000 foot cliffs narrow down to just 20 - 30 feet wide. Hiking this slot canyon is unique because the Virgin River is the trail. It requires you to cross back and forth over the slick bowling ball sized boulders, which make up most of the riverbed.
River depth and temperatures fluctuate with the changing of the seasons and hikers need to be knowledgeable about the main risks: tripping and falling, hypothermia and flash flooding.
Having the right footwear – and the ability to stay warm during cooler months - is the difference between a good day and a great one. Seasonal rental packages and our brief Pre-Narrows Orientation video provide up-to-date information on the risks, so you can enjoy this world-renowned hike safely and comfortably.
