Zion National Park is no longer issuing top-down permits for the popular Narrows hike. This includes all overnight use. The 16 mile hike down the Virgin River begins on private land. The private landowner has revoked public access across their land. The landowner has recently posted ‘No Trespassing’ signs on their property.

Trail Access from Temple of Sinawava

Hikers can still access the Narrows Trail from the bottom up to Big Spring. Access beyond this point is not permitted at this time. The Park is working with the private landowner to resolve access issues, but until then, the rest of the trail will not be accessible.

Future Trail Updates

Zion National Park promises to provide updates on their social media channels. Stay tuned and we will give you updates as they come along.

HikeStGeorge is a project that began as a seedling for Tim LeBaron in the early part of 2008, but really didn’t begin to blossom until the latter part of 2011. The original idea behind the site was to bring to light all of the harder to find, or “less known” hidden gems of the area. It was more of a pet project than anything. As excitement about the site began to spread, there was more of a push to develop information about all hikes in the Southern Utah Region.
