If you visit Zion national park, Angels landing is definitely the hike you will want to do. One tip: start in early morning to finish before the real heat starts! When we started the hike at 8.30am, we never thought we would make it to the top. We looked up and realised it was a looong way to go up.... More

A really awesome experience. At 50 years old I can say this hike was one of the coolest things we have ever done. The views were awe inspiring.

We only hiked to the Boy Scout Camp, which is the base before the chain section. It was really crowded and seemed dangerous to go any further. It is still a great hike up switchbacks for about 5 miles round trip. It is hard on your lungs on the way up and on your legs on the way down. Take... More

Ok this trail can seem difficult and dangerous.... but its sooooo beautiful and so a great feeling when you achieve it! Still I will not advise this trail to small children or people with some difficulties because there's some difficult hiking especially during the last part. Anyway it was one of the best trails we ever did! Be courageous!

Angel's landing is a very popular trail and it is easy to see why! Towards the top the climb gets pretty difficult as you mount steep ledges and rock faces. But there are chains and barriers to aid you and the views just inspire you to carry on. If you are apprehensive about this trail's difficulty I would say do... More

This is a good hike for anyone because the views are great and it is a nice workout, but it can be busy. The very end of the hike really should only be done by experienced hikers and in good conditions because of awesome exposure and some scrambling. I am sure people have fallen to their deaths by going to... More

In 2000, we made this hike and have always talked about going back and doing it again. Now 14 years later, we scheduled another trip to Zion, specifically to get to the top of Angel's Landing again. Needless to say, this is our favorite hike ever. Sure it can get very crowded but please don't let this stop you from... More

I can't really add more to the reviews that are already written for this trail but thought I'd post some photos to give you an idea of why it's worth the effort to do this trail. Don't be in a hurry to do this one and start early in the day if you are hiking during the summer months. There... More

Climbed Angels Landing during my trip to America. We started from the bottom. Like literally bottom. When I first saw where we needed to reach I thought 'hell no!', how the hell was I going to get up there. Funnily it only took about 4 hours. When you get to the too it does start getting dangerous. I wouldn't recommend... More

Most of the people who have written reviews for this hike have made it through the chains and sheer drops and are exceptionally proud of themselves for having conquered Angels Landing. Those who haven't tend to be apologetic for 'only' having made it as far as Scouts Landing. Well, here is a review from someone who is an avid hiker,... More
