Zion’s Narrows Closed to Hiking

The Narrows hike in Zion National Park has been closed because of dangerously high water. And permits may not be issued for some backcountry slot canyon hikes until the high water subsides.

Runoff should be over by mid or late June and the closed hikes will reopen at that time.

This is an excellent time to hike many trails in Zion and other national parks. Waterfalls in the park are more numerous and are spectacular this year because of the runoff. Check at the visitor center if you have questions about trail safety.

This news report gives details.
