First things first: have water shoes or close toed sandles (I had closed toed hiking sandles and did fine) and rent a walking stick at the shop by the entrance to Zion. This is a must do activity in Zion if you're fit, adventurous and...More
This hike is everything everyone said it would be. It's insanely beautiful and the parts of it we did were fairly easy/flat. As everyone else is saying you should definitely rent gear - waterproof pants, boots, neoprene socks and a walking stick (more like a...More
We went in December. Less touristy. We rented our gear from Zion Outfitters right outside the park. (roughly $45 for boots, waders and walking sticks). It was COLD!!! I'll admit. But our family had a blast. Such natural beauty around every bend. We spent 5...More
We followed the advice of hikers that suggested doing this as early as possible to avoid the crowds. We got in line for the tram at 5:30 and did NOT make it in the first group that left at 6am. Departing at 6:15 we arrived...More
Did this hike with my almost 8 year old, 11 and 12 year olds....it was great! We rented gear from Zion Outfitters and they were great. There was a chance of showers that day but they told us the risks and how far to hike...More
Plan to get wet even if you rent the gear. It will not keep your feet dry!! But the neoprene socks will keep your feet warm. In retrospect, I wish I'd have bought my own "wet" socks and used a grippy pair of shoes I...More

You can hike the bottom section in the winter, as far as I know the top 8 miles are closed to hiking as the road accessing the northern entrance is closed. You can start in the park and hike up to the waterfall and back again. I HIGHLY recommend renting dry suits with boots and poles, or you will freeze. The water will be low, but cold. The right gear makes a huge difference.

Door to trailhead... minimum 4.5 hours, probably closer to 5 depending on how you do it. It's at least 2.5-2.75 hours from Las Vegas to Zion National Park (maybe more if you stop to eat/gas). Add to that the time you need... More
Door to trailhead... minimum 4.5 hours, probably closer to 5 depending on how you do it. It's at least 2.5-2.75 hours from Las Vegas to Zion National Park (maybe more if you stop to eat/gas). Add to that the time you need to get into the park/pay admission, park your vehicle, rent gear at the outfitter out front, and catch the 45 minute shuttle up to the Temple of Sinawava, plus a 30 minute walk along the river to the actual entrance to the narrows.
It's doable as a day trip... I've done it myself, and it's a phenomenal hike but make sure you leave Vegas EARLY (i.e. 3:30-4AM) and remember that you're losing an hour going from Nevada into Utah. I recommend getting to St. George (Utah) around 6AM... grabbing breakfast at the Black Bear Diner... and then making your way to the park.
