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
The hike in the narrows needs a little bit of planning, don't expect to rock up on the day and do the hike.

I and my wife did this on Nov8th, 2018. We rented the neoprene sock, waterproof shoes, walking stick and wetsuit/dry pants. I would recommend renting these proper gear in order to have a wonderful experience and doesn't feel cold. The hiking stick was helpful a...More
The Narrows is the best hike ever! I’ve done it 3 times. Twice in the summer months, June and July. This last time was in October, we rented water boots and dry pants and a hiking stick.
The day was beautiful, sunny and in the...More
- the water level was very low, highest points were at mid-thigh

My husband and I hiked the Narrows late November last year and it was one of the breathtaking hikes we have ever had. We felt like we were in a different world altogether. We hiked for about 6 hours round trip and the narrowed section...More
Outfitted with canyoneering boots, wet socks, dry pull up bibs and sticks, two sixty year olds made the 10 mile round trip AND LOVED IT! Took four hours upstream and three back but we actually got to campsite number twelve before turning back.
We tackled this hike in the beginning of November. It was pleasantly warm out, although chilly water temperatures made us turn back before the Wall, as water was waist deep from that point forward. The hike was fun, and getting to explore a slot canyon...More
We hiked this in early November, and it is definitely not for the faint of heart! Temperatures were in the 30s, which meant the water was even colder.
We brought our own equipment, all of which were very much needed — trekking poles, hat, gloves,...More
Walked the Virgin River "Narrows" on 11/6/18 from 8 AM to 4 PM. Rented the night before specially designed river hiking boots, neoprene booties, walking stick, and waterproof waders that come up to your upper waist for $50 each from Adventure Tours; great service. Your...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.
