Description: There is no trail, only river and wet feet. Hiking the Narrows in Zion National Park is one of the most unusual slot canyon trail experiences you’ll find. Hiking up the Virgin River, most people begin at the Temple of Siniawava on the Riverside Walk. Walking upstream as far as your adventure spirit leads. Throttle your adventure from a two to ten mile aquatic romp walking, wading and swimming. Before you hike-check the weather.
Length: A few hours to a full day
The rewards: A challenge that you can throttle up or down based on your party. Family friendly, but probably not a place for kids under the age of 8-10. Endless beauty, unique and memorable desert experience. Time your adventure in the off-season of Fall or Winter to reduce the crowds and watch the weather forecast for rain. The canyon is prone to flash floods.
Pro tip: Rent gear including wetsuit and rubber booties.
Season: Spring, Fall, Winter
