Description

Certainly "off the beaten path," The Narrows is one of the most unique experiences one can have while visiting Zion National Park. Though sometimes crowded, visitors can "choose their own adventure" here. There is no formal destination as observing the canyon is the objective and the exceptional red sandstone formation extends for miles. There is an option to turn around whenever you feel like it, and the return is a backtrack of the same journey.

Along the way to Orderville Canyon, you'll be continuously awestruck by the peculiarity of this narrow and incredibly deep canyon. The sandstone walls of the canyon flow overhead like the water that carved them into existence.

Short Hike: Follow Riverside Walk to the start of The Narrows - Bottom Up Route hike.

Family Friendly: Get the kids set up with the proper equipment for this outing and they'll absolutely love every minute of it.

Fallen Trees - Only one tree blocking the path, but it’s easy to duck under. Cabin springs and several seeps are running.

Mostly Dry - Stream isn't very full. Makes keeping feet dry until the end pretty easy. Leaves are changing and absolutely incredible!
