The trailhead for the Narrows hike is found at the shuttle stop at the far end of the main canyon. From February-November, the park is closed to private vehicles so you must ride the free shuttle from the Visitor Center.
To get to The Narrows, take the paved Riverside Walk, a 1 mile long, easy stroll through some beautiful scenery and along the Virgin River. Anyone can do this section. It ends at a rocky beach where you begin wading upriver and thus begin hiking The Narrows.
The first section in the river is 0.5 miles long, from where you start wading until you get to Mystery Falls, so named because water flows down the right side of the canyon wall and creates a gorgeous 110 foot small waterfall.
The next marker is Wall Street, about a mile upstream from Mystery Falls. Here the canyon walls get much closer together and the “wow” factor really amps up.
From the confluence of Orderville Canyon, you can hike about 2.5 more miles up the Virgin River, through Wall Street, until you reach Big Spring where day hikers must turn-around.
