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

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

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

For perspective, it was 85 degrees when we were there. The water was very cold but not unbearable. I think you have to look at both the ambient temps as well as the water temps.
