Itinerary description

This trail in Zion National Park is ranked as #5 on National Geographic’s list of America's Best 100 Adventures.

The Narrows in Zion National Park, (near Springdale, Utah) is a section of canyon on the North Fork of the Virgin River. The hike of The Narrows is one of the premier hikes on the Colorado Plateau. The term The Narrows refers to both the through-hike of The Narrows, and to The Narrows themselves, especially the 3.6 mile (6 km) long section of canyon between the end of the Riverside Walk Trail and Big Springs. The through-hike is accessed by driving east on the Zion-Mount Carmel Highway out the east entrance of the park, then north on the mostly dirt "North Fork Road" to Chamberlain Ranch trailhead. The Narrows lies north of, and upstream of, the main Zion Canyon. Hiking up The Narrows is one of the most popular activities in the Park (from wikipedia:

    Amazing experience and amazing views.
    Not a difficult trail, but walking in the river is exhausting
