We all enjoyed the hike up until the last 1/2 mile which is climbing wotj chains to get to the summit. 2 of us hung back at that point and waited for the other 3 to complete, took about an hour. You are truly exposed for this portion, 7 fatalities since 2004. But the folks in our group who completed... More

This is a great hike to go on - lots of fantastic scenery and plenty of walking (some parts quite steep, but easy going to Scout's Landing).

Ok, so this is probably the best hike I have ever done. It was challenging and rewarding the whole way through. The views that you get from the top of Angel's Landing are unrivaled in my opinion. There is no way to fully describe the ascent, however, so I recommend watching someone's YouTube video before attempting it. I will say,... More

This hike far exceeded my expectations. First, most of the trail is paved and very steep until the last 1/2 mile, which is where it gets interesting. The last 1/2 mile is quite thrilling and can be quite dangerous. There path is narrow, steep, with chains to hold on to keep you from falling 2000 feet. The hike is about... More

Eight years ago after being told by the doctors that I would never walk again or have use of my left arm from a motorcycle accident. I started looking for challenges that would seem impossible, this was my top one! The good Lord, the physical therapist, my trainer and my stubbornness proved the doctors wrong! I got started early in... More

"The best things in life are free". This is one of those things. This tops my list as one of my favorite adventures/bucket list items. It was absolutely breathtaking to see, and an accomplishment for everyone to experience. There's a sense of self accomplishment, but the nature of it all, reminds you to appreciate the finer things in life, the... More

I only made it as far as Scout's Lookout - I'm deathly afraid of heights and the last half-mile on the razor-ridge was too much for me. I went at 6:30 am and watched the sun rise from Scout's Lookout - no crowds at this time and the view is breathtaking.

This hike turned out to be the highlight of our 18 day trip in the grand circle. We are a family with two children 9 and 7. I am afraid of heights, so I never thought I'd make the last half mile. I wasn't sure if the kids will make it either. I've seen so many scary pictures of the... More

This is a strenuous hike and definitely not for the faint hearted. The views are absolutely stunning and worth it. I would recommend starting this hike as early in the morning as possible. We took the first shuttle from the visitors center at 6 am. If you leave a little later in the day, the sun can be punishing on... More

Be careful but a night hike to the stars. You don,t have to go all the way at night but it's worth it. You are at the each of the stars haven't seen that many stars since being in the South Atlantic.
