The Narrows

The Narrows Bottom Up, Hurricane, Utah, 84737

The Basics

The most popular Narrows hiking route leads up the canyon from the Temple of Sinawava. Follow the mile-long (1.6-kilometer) Riverside Walk to where the paved trail ends and the real Narrows begin. For the next 4 miles (6 kilometers), slosh through the Virgin River and weave deeper and deeper into the wild. The other route begins at Chamberlain’s Ranch on the park’s northern boundary and follows the river for 16 miles (26 kilometers) down Zion Canyon.

Explore The Narrows independently at your own pace. It’s also possible to visit on a multi-day national parks tour from Las Vegas, which allows you to see Zion along with other American highlights, such as Bryce Canyon, Monument Valley, and the Grand Canyon.

Fantastic day trip to Zion

The Narrows: Zion National Park Private Guided Hike
This was the perfect day trip to Zion from Park City. Moi is one of the owners of the company and was our guide. He could not have been more accommodating. He picked us up at our hotel in Park City so we didn’t have to drive into Salt Lake City. He was very friendly and engaging and asked us what we wanted to do while at Zion. We hadn’t done much research so we left it up to him. He packed a lot into the few hours we were in Zion and took us to several stops that were off the beaten path. We did some hiking, avoided the crowds and had a fantastic day that ended with a late charcuterie lunch. The day trip is a lot of car time but it was worth every minute to see the beauty of Zion and Moi made it go by quickly. He clearly loves Zion and shared his love and enthusiasm of the park with us. If you are considering this trip, don’t hesitate - sign up immediately. Zion is breathtaking and Moi is a fabulous guide. It was a fun day with great scenery and conversation.

How to Get There

The Narrows are in Zion National Park, roughly 2.6 hours by road from Las Vegas. Parking is limited inside the park, so it’s a good idea to park in Springdale and ride the free Springdale Shuttle to the park’s Pedestrian Entrance. From there, free shuttles run throughout the park.
