Don't Plan on Hiking the Narrows this Spring

Jump to last reply

I knew southern Utah was having a big snow year too (besides the Wasatch), but on the news last night they said the mountains that feed the Virgin River are at 178% of normal snow pack. That's a lot folks, not unheard of, but a lot.

That means you should not expect to be able to hike The Narrows in Zion anytime soon this spring.

ALWAYS check with the visitor's center or a local ranger/forest office before heading out into the Utah wilds.

Don't put off a trip to Zion - there are plenty of other hikes just as spectacular! Plenty to keep you busy and tired.

Best time to hike The Narrows is fall, or summer on days when no thunderstorm activity might affect the river - and the rangers say OK to go!
