Zion National Park Again Issuing Narrows Top Down Hiking Permits
Narrows Permits Available
Zion National Park announces that as of September 29, 2018, they are again issuing top-down hiking permits to the well known Narrows Hike through the Virgin River. Access from the top entrance of the trail was terminated recently by the private landowner.
Permanent Access Solutions Being Explored
According to the Park website, Zion administrators and members of the Washington County Commission are working with the private landowner at the entrance of the hike to resolve access concerns. In the meantime, the landowner has agreed to temporarily open access to the Narrows Trail until the end of 2018. They continue to work on an permanent solution that will be announced later.
Hiking Available With or Without Permit
Permits are available for overnight and day use, and can be picked up at the Park visitor center. Day hikes from the Temple of Sinawava to Big Spring continue to be open without a permit.
