I have hiked this trail twice, once in the summer and now once in the winter and it was as good the second time as the first. It can be accomplished in 4-5 hrs without rushing and is not for those nervous around ledges! Bring gloves in the off season they really help with the cold chains

Wow. This hike is truly one-of-a-kind. We left early in the morning to miss all of the foot traffic coming up and down (highly recommend starting around 6:30am) The view is beyond belief. It is well worth all of the hard work it takes getting up to it. Again, be sure to leave early because it is not fun coming... More

I would be the first to admit that I am terrified of heights- typically, I get light headed and queasy when faced with the potential opportunity to plummet to my death. That being said, I hiked this and LOVED IT and I suppose most importantly, lived to review it. It is only the last 0.5 miles that are difficult. Once... More

When my tour of the US West arrived for its stop off at Zion National Park I stepped out of the bus absolutely determined- beyond words- to conquer Angel's Landing, a fairly short but extremely steep and challenging ascent with stunning views at its summit which more than reward the effort it takes to reach the top. In the months... More

The first time I was in Zion I made this hike but only made it to Scout lookout because there were not many people on the trail and it was icy and I chickened out. This time I did the whole hike and the last section to Angel's Landing was not as scary as I had thought. I am glad... More

This is a long, hot hike up steep inclines. There are several areas where you hang to a rock to traverse the trail and have to hang on to chains to avoid a major, catastrophic fall. Must be brave.

In the months leading up to our trip, I kept looking at posts/pictures re: Angels Landing and trying to figure out if I could be a responsible Dad (kids 19 and 22) and also take them and other friends on this hike. It is confusing, because the pictures and videos look crazy, but then thousands and thousands of people do... More

Hiking Angels Landing after a snow storm makes you feel the bravest. Steep, slippery and icy but beautiful and a memorable experience. I had moments when I believed that any missing step could end my life, moments I thought of giving up and not reaching the top, I even turned around and gave up for 10 seconds but then I... More

The coolest hike I have ever been on. It is seriously, seriously awesome - though only if you can conquer your fear of heights! The leadup to it is pretty strenuous as it is very steep, but the end reward is totally worth it. The views at the very top are amazing and the journey getting there is harrowing and... More

We hiked this in late December, two days after a snowfall, and only made it as far as Scouts Lookout. The trail up to Scouts is not that difficult- paved and very wide, but with steep drop-offs. Walter’s Wriggles were rather icy that day, so we were careful to walk on the dirt along the edge of the trail. As... More
