Angel's Landing is one of Zion's most spectular scenic outlooks; it can be reached only by a very demanding hike on the West Rim Trail.

This is an amazing hike that is an absolute must-do. We went on a Sunday and set out early (around 8-9AM). There was ample parking at the visitor's center at this time, however it quickly fills up after 10AM. There is a park shuttle bus that is very easy to use and less than 15 min ride to the Angel's...

This hike is strenuous, but leave early and pack lots of water and snacks. The view is totally worth it, but be very cautious as it is very dangerous if you're not careful!

This is a must do hike. The views from up top are absolutely stunning. I do have to emphasize that this is a strenuous hike in that it is very steep with 21 grueling switchbacks and that's before you even start scrambling up the rock holding on to the chains. You will need a good pair of hiking shoes with... More

This 5.4 mile round trip of a hike with an elevation gain of almost 1500 ft. has to be one of the best hikes!! While first 2 miles is all paved, it is still very steep to climb and offers great view as you go up. The tip is is stop often and look around you. The whole hike offers... More

Beautiful little hike (we are in good shape). Goes steeply up and ends on a cliff for some time. Quite technical and you should not be subject to fears of hights. I could not complete it unfortunately as the thunder came in with rain and strong winds. Call me a sisi but you shall judge when you get there. Highly... More

Zion National Park is what I consider to be one of the most beautiful places in this world. The red rocks contrasting with the massive amounts of vegetation makes it look like you were transported to some universe in which Mars was habitable. Angel's Landing allows you to see this amazing landscape from above the entire time throughout your trek... More

Start off early and take plenty of water. Hiking stick is also recommended. This is a strenuous hike and very steep. Take breaks. The views are great and worth the effort

Angels landing is the reason why Zion national Park is my favorite park in the US. I believe the entire hike is approximately 5 miles round-trip. The majority of the trail has been paved or has been carved out of rock so walking up and down is somewhat comfortable but you still need a good hiking shoe. Going up the... More

While I couldn't do this hike I'm talking through what my step son said. Great hike especially when you get to the craggy area & use the sturdy chains to finish to top. Only issue was timing so people coming up/down had space to pass. Lots of folks on top of rock which makes panorama pictures impossible. Would suggest early... More

We hiked to Scout's Overlook but did not finish the trek to Angel's Landing. Angel's Landing was busy and it was starting to sprinkle. Hike to Scouts Overlook is a great one with beautful views.
