The Narrows in Zion is an unforgettable hike for anyone up to the challenge, whether you're an experienced backpacker or a curious beginner. Come learn two different ways to experience this amazing route, and tips to prepare your trip this Summer or Fall.
Wade the Virgin River through a slot canyon 1000 feet deep, sometimes only 20-30 feet wide, past waterfalls and hanging gardens. For newcomers, a day-trip starting from the "bottom-up" could be as easy as 3-8 miles; the distance is up to you. For a serious trek, obtain a permit for "top-down" and commit to 16 miles over one or two days. Either way, "good planning, proper equipment, and sound judgment are essential for a safe and successful trip."
We will describe the two routes, provide a checklist of gear, explain the top-down permit process, and answer your questions about this amazing adventure. Presented by Cynthia DesGrange, devoted Zion fangirl and an organizer for Las Vegas Hiking & Outdoors Meetup.
