Re: [Zion_National_Park_Hiking] Re: Kanarra creek question
- I was there in late May and the ladders and hand lines are in good shape. The hike is exposed until you cross the creek (very easy to follow), and then nice and shady once you're in the canyon. It's very beautiful!$10 to park at the TH, and free if you want to walk a couple of blocks from the Town Hall.It's worth the $10 per car.

I don't know current conditions but unless things really dry up it is hard to imagine doing it without water shoes of some sort - nothing fancy required. Or sneakers you don't mind wading in.
Some older directions talk about parking at the town hall, but there is a (fee) parking lot by the trailhead. Of course if you don't like the fee you can probably park in the big town hall parking lot - it's not a long walk.
In the past there were people collecting an additional per hiker fee on the trail. Don't know about that. Ladders tend to get trashed each spring; don't know current conditions.
Late day would be OK I think. The trail to/from the narrows is an old road much of the way and would be easy to follow in waning light. You don't really have to go too far up the narrows to get through the best part. It's a very beautiful place.
Hopefully someone will post more up to date beta
