Up the Narrows to Orderville Canyon

Up the Narrows to Orderville Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"This hike—suitable for children over 8 years old and for most active hikers—is the easiest and shortest way to experience the beauty of the Zion Narrows and to see the most spectacular section of Orderville Canyon.

Orderville Canyon joins the Virgin River at a very narrow section. Both canyons are beautiful at the confluence. You can walk about 5 minutes up Orderville Canyon before encountering a deep pool and waterfall. It’s impractical to proceed beyond this point."

"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."
