Hiked the Bottom-Up portion during winter. One of the greatest hikes of my life and very quiet. Only saw about ten other people over the course of the in and out hike.

Neoprene booties, a dry suit and walking stick made the hike safe and comfortable in the colder temperatures. Water level was just over waist deep (I'm 5'1").

The Narrows is worth the visit, but the crowds were almost too much. Can't say we enjoyed the shuttle bus to catch the shuttle bus to hike on an very crowded trail. The scenery is truly spectacular and jaw dropping, we only went a little ways up the Narrows and the current got a little strong and wasn't worth the risk with my small children.
