Only got to do the first part as it was March and we were not equipped to continue in the water. The trail was closed anyway because of the weather conditions. Loved it! Must be incredible to walk the while way.

Hiking the Narrows was the highlight of our whole trip. The scenery was fantastic. We hiked to what they call the wall and back which totaled 8 miles. I was exhausted on the way back but the experience was well worth it.

Making memories there. It's so beautiful and fun from beginner to advanced. It's for everyone! Took my 83 yr. old grandfather along and he had a blast.

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

This spot is really famous at this NP then be ready because at some moments it could seem like wandering of the nations. On the other side it is neat experience.
