Anything past (upstream) from the end of road roundabout area (Temple of Sinawava) on the Zion Canyon Seanic road. Follow the Riverside walk foot-trail up-stream until you reach your objective. The canyon has a north-south orientation, and the Riverside Walk trail is as crowded as they come.

Getting There 

Take the shuttle bus (or drive in the off-season) to the very end of the Zion Canyon Sceanic road. There is a parking area here, and restrooms. This area is known as the Temple of Sinewava. Follow the very popular Riverside walk trail up the Virgin river. This trail eventually leads one to the Zion narrows. Depending on how far up canyon your route is, the approach could range from minutes to hours (and could even require swimming!).

Climbing Season

For the Zion National Park area.
