Seeing pictures doesn’t do it justice. You have to experience it! Will be going back to hike further back.

We visited the narrows 30 years ago but we couldn't remember how far up we got so we wanted to repeat the experience. Clearly things have changed in 30 years. You can now rent special boots and walking sticks and there are lots more people....More

I wish I'd understood better what I was getting into. This trek is really only for those wanting a challenging experience and looking for something adventurous. I would only recommend it for people in great physical shape. The water level was higher than I expected...More

One of our most anticipated hikes on our Utah national parks vacation. After much research, we decided not to rent gear. We own water hiking shoes, waterproof socks and we have hiking poles (which in our opinion having 2 poles was much better than the...More

Don't let the hype scare you. Anyone with moderate health and balance can do it. Get a stick at entrance. Wife and I 62 and did 9 miles round trip and we are not hikers. Amazing

You don’t need a guide. Just follow all the other folks and turn around when you’re tired. Adults wore hiking boots and had poles and teens just used sneakers-which dry out in about an hour in this heat! Or rent... More
