General Information on Hiking The Narrows, Zion National Park

Hiking the Zion Narrows is possible most of the year, including the Winter. Monsoon season (mid-July through mid-September), and early Spring, when the snow melt runs off from the higher elevations, may render the Narrows un-hikable for short stretches of time. During the colder months (October-May) a dry suit is necessary, to prevent hypothermia. The end of September and June are considered ideal times for this hike.

The flow of the river is the determining factor for hikability. The flow is measured by Cubic Feet per Second, or CFS. The lower the CFS, the easier the hiking will be. Typically, the CFS will be very high (600-1000 CFS) during Spring run-off (March-May), and gradually lower, until it reaches roughly 120 CFS by the end of May/early June. By September, the flow may be as low as 25 CFS, which is a wonderful level for hiking. I have personally hiked the Narrows (from the bottom up) in early May of 2001, towards the end of Spring run-off, when the flow was measured at 286 CFS. It was quite challenging and a dry suit, (available for rent at the Zion Adventure Company) was necessary, as the water temperture was in the 40's. Special river hiking shoes and a walking stick is highly recommended and available at the Zion Adventure Company as well. A visit or phone call to the knowledgeble folks at this awesome place will prove indispensible to anyone preparing a hike through the Narrows. Information about their services and the Narrows hike can also be accessed from their website: The Zion Adventure Company. The specially designed footwear and walking stick will help to make your time spent in the Narrows much safer and pleasurable. The algea covering the rocks in the water will make it seem like you are hiking on 'greased bowling balls'. No exaggeration here. The Five Ten Canyoneer river shoe, with it's super sticky rubber sole and self-drainage holes, combined with the neoprene sock for warmth, is the ultimate in comfort and traction. Stop in and try on a pair for yourself! Rental packages range from $16 for warm water hiking (June-September) and $35 for cold water hiking (October-May). Overnight rentals (for the two-day overnight hike through the Narrows) are available, as well...$25 for warm water or $55 for cold water. Please inquire for more information (435) 772-1001.

3 ways to hike the Narrows:

1. The One Day Thru-Hike
The length of the Zion Narrows from the top is 16 miles. There is an additional 1 mile paved hike along the 'Riverside Walk' trail at the end, to access the Zion Canyon shuttle bus to the Visitor's Center, where you should have your car waiting for you. Hiking time usually averages 12 hours for most people. Tt is necessary to hire a private shuttle company (not the shuttle that is operated by Zion National Park) to access Chamberlain's Ranch, the upper trailhead for the Narrows hike. *Note: Please keep in mind that Chamberlain's Ranch is private property, so please respect the priveledge to access the Narrows from the top. The Zion Adventure Co. provides shuttles for $25 per person, in season. Call (435) 772-1001 in advance, for reservations. Hiking the entire length of the Narrows in one day will be quite an athletic endeavor for most people. It is enjoyable for some, and quite challenging for others. Most first time Narrows hikers opt for the 'bottom up' hike, or the 2 day overnight option, to allow enough time to experience the canyon in leisure, without being on such a tight time schedule. Make sure to bring a headlamp or flashlight with you, especially in Sept. and Oct., when darkness falls between 7-7:30PM. Instead of carrying all your water, you may want to consider using a water filter, as weight is a big factor on the 1 day thru-hike. Pack only the essentials, including an extra layer of dry clothing (synthetic fibers, such as Coolmax or Capilene...NOT cotton), plenty of food and a lightsource. Throw in your first aid kit also, if you have one. Everything must be secured in a dry bag, available for rent at The Zion Adventure Company, or line the inside of your pack with plastic bags. There is a chance that everything can get wet, otherwise. A walking stick is essential, and the 5.10 Canyoneer river hiking shoes, also available for rent at The Zion Adventure Company, will help to make your day in the Narrows a safe one.

See Tom's Canyoneering Guide for more information on hiking the Narrows Top-Down in one day.

2. Two-Day Overnight Hike
MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE:
I finally had the priviledge to hike the entire length of Zion's Narrows in April of 2001. It was my first backpack trip. The conditions were unusual for this time of year, which enabled hiking the Narrows during Spring run-off. Due to the serious drought Utah and much of the West is experiencing, there was not enough snow melt on the upper levels of the plateau to produce high water in the Narrows. The flow of the river was roughly 75 CFS, considered a comfortable level for hiking. However, the first several miles of the hike had melting ice along the shoreline, which caused slippery mud conditions. I fell several times as a result, and found it safer to walk in the river instead. I rented the Zion Adventure Company's Cold Water Package, which included their Narrows Dry Suit and the Five Ten Canyoneer footwear that comes along with the package. Can't say enough about that store and their stuff, not to mention the wonderful staff! The shuttle operators in town were not yet providing service up to Chamberlain's Ranch, (too early in the season) so I had to enlist a friend to drive me up to the top. I started hiking around 9:00 AM and made it to my designated campsite #8 seven hours later. The first 2 miles of the hike were on a dirt road, and it was easy going. The next 2 miles or so were in ankle deep water, and was also relatively easy. From then on, I was in and out of different depths of water, none if I recall, over upper waist. Normally, there are 12 campsites in the Narrows, but as of this writing (10/13/02), one of the 12 was recently closed due to hikers' carelessness in waste removal...the human kind. Sad. To help allieviate this situation, the Park Service has been issuing special sanitary waste bags, which are lightweight and work great for packing out your waste. Obviously, not everyone shares the same concerns for our environment. VERY sad. Please help do your share, so that the Narrows will continue to provide people the opportunity for a potential life changing experience. It is entirely possible that future access to the Narrows from Chamberlain's Ranch will be denied to hikers if such careless disrespect is continued. In fact, it would not surprise me. I saw a large amount of litter along the hike, especially on Chamberlain's Ranch property. This could easily provide The Park Service, and/or Mr. Chaimberlain an excuse to block access. Please be considerate. More about the hike...I recommend a lower campsite, specifically #6-12. Campsite #8 is set aside for large groups, but the Park Service may grant a permit for smaller groups during non-peak months, when few hikers do the overnight hike. I would suggest requesting #8 when you apply for your permit because, in my opinion, it is AWESOME! A HUGE beautiful alcove, which shields against wind and/or rain. Otherwise, any site between #9-12 would be fine. There is nothing unsuitable with the upper sites, only that it is prefferable to break the 2 days up evenly.

See Tom's Canyoneering Guide for more information on hiking the Narrows Top-Down Overnight.

3. Bottom-Up Hike
This is my favorite way to do the Zion Narrows hike. No permit is necessary to hike from the bottom-up. Park your car at the Visitor's Center inside the park, and hop on the free Zion Canyon shuttle up canyon. Get off the shuttle at the last stop, which is the Temple of Sinawava. The shuttle ride will take aproximately 45 minutes, so plan accordingly. From there, hike the 1 mile Riverside Walk trail (paved) to the end, which should take about 20 minutes. When the pavement ends, begin hiking upstream in the river. Within fifteen minutes of hiking you will see Mystery Canyon Falls, a thin 120' waterfall spilling over on your right. From here, it just gets more magnificent with each step. No words can even come close to describing such beauty. Continue on upstream past Mystery Falls. About 1 mile from where you began hiking in the river, you will come upon the Narrows Alcove. This is a spectacular rock amphitheatre, surrounded by lush green vegetation. From the Alcove, it is only about 1/2 of a mile further to Orderville Canyon, a popular destination/turn-around point for many bottom-up hikers. I suggest continuing on upstream to Big Springs, roughly 4 miles from where you started in the river. It will take aproximately 4 hours to hike up to Big Springs, and about 3 hours to hike back downstream to the Temple of Sinawava. Plan on about 7 hours in the river...a full on day in the Narrows! Hiking up to Big Springs will enable you to see the most photographed section of the canyon, where the walls are only 22' wide and 1500' tall. Don't forget to bring your camera! On the way back, if you have the time/energy, check out Orderville Canyon. This canyon is very beautiful, as well. There are some obstacles such as small waterfalls, log jams and rock falls, that you will need to negotiate in order to progress up Orderville. It is much easier to climb up these obstacles, then it is to climb down, so keep that in mind! Eventually the going gets too difficult to continue without using ropes, and most folks turn back at that point. Experienced climbers with very good downclimbing ability can get pretty far up canyon. If you are familar with rappelling techniques, I suggest hiking Orderville Canyon from the top down. You will need a shuttle to the upper trailhead, about an hours' drive from the Visitor's Center. The Zion Adventure Company provides transportation to Orderville for $25.00 per person in season. Departure time is 6:00 AM, so don't forget to pick up an alarm clock at Zion Outdoor, located behind the Zion Pizza & Noodle Company & Zion Cycles.

See Tom's Canyoneering Guide for more information on hiking the Narrows Bottom-Up.
