Description

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.
Seasonal Raptor Closures ***** RAIN AND WET ROCK ***** The sandstone in Zion is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Holds rip off and climbs have been and will continue to be permanently damaged due to climbers not respecting this phenomenon. After a heavy storm the rock will remain wet, sometimes for several days. PLEASE DO NOT CLIMB IN ZION during or after rain. A good rule of thumb is that if the ground near your climb is at all damp (and not powdery dry sand), then do not climb. There are many alternatives (limestone, granite, basalt, and plastic) nearby.

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!).
