Virgin Narrows, Utah is one of the best hikes in the world.
Tim Miner, Trail Sherpa:
Regardless of your preferences for weight, style, or functionality you will need the following essential gear to tackle the Narrows in Zion:
Neoprene socks or Seal Skinz
Dry Pants (early or late seasons)
Camera and extra battery
Hydration System – bladder, bottles, and filtration system
Most critical – water shoes. Tim recommends Chaco Tedinho Pros.
If I went again, I’d wear 5-10 CANYONEERS again. With neoprene socks, again. They were perfect for my Narrows trip, perhaps 40% of the time walking in the water.
