The Narrows Permits

The Narrows
 

Hiking The Narrows from the top down, either in one day or two days, requires a Wilderness Permit.

Advance Reservations: up to 3 months in advance
Over half of all available Narrows permits are available using a calendar reservation system. Reservations are available online during a three-month time frame. On the fifth day of every month at 10:00 am MT, reservations for the next month become available. If they are still available, they can be made until 5:00 pm MT on the day before your trip.

 
 

There is a $5.00 non-refundable fee for an online calendar reservation, and there is an additional charge for a permit that is determined by the size of your group.

Last Minute Drawing: 7 to 2 days in advance
If there are no advanced reservations for the one day available, the Last Minute Drawing will become an option 7 to 2 days before your trip date. If spaces remain after the Last Minute Drawing, walk-in permits become available the day before your trip date.

Apply for the Last Minute Drawing for the day hike from top to bottom.

Walk-in Permits: One day in advance
Backpacking sites are available as walk-in permits and can be obtained at park visitor centers the day before your trip.
