A one-day trip up the lower section of The Narrows. Travelers should expect nearly constant wading on this hike, which follows the North Fork of the Virgin River up through the lower half of the spectacular Narrows of Zion Canyon. Be ready for slippery cobbles in water that may be waist-deep and quite cold. Overnight camping is not allowed in this section of the canyon, but no special permit is required to undertake the trek. Check the Narrow Canyon Danger Level at park headquarters before starting out, however; there is little in the way of escape terrain should a cloudburst high in the headwaters send a wall of water down the canyon.
