How to Get There

Take Zion Canyon Scenic Drive to the many river access points and riverside hiking trails. The trail to The Narrows is the last stop along the route. A park shuttle runs throughout the busy season (March–November) and no private vehicles are allowed in the park when the shuttle is running. For tubing, stop at one of the outfitters along Highway 9.

When to Get There

During the spring, the river is often raging from snowmelt, ruling out hiking The Narrows, swimming, or tubing. For these activities, visit in the early summer. Later in the summer and fall, the water levels can get too low for tubing.

Wildcard

Hiking The Narrows from Top to Bottom While most visitors only hike the short, bottom portion of The Narrows, to truly immerse yourself in the Virgin River canyon, start from the top of The Narrows and hike down the slot canyon into the park. The 16-mile (26-kilometer) trek is best done over two days with a night of camping along the way. It is a strenuous adventure and permits and shuttles must be arranged in advance.
