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.

A 3 mile hike of great length. A nice uphill trail leads to a great hike of amazing views of canyons to mountain views. The first half mile is a long uphill hike with breathtaking views. Nice wide path is easy and requires slow and breaks in your hike. The last 15 minutes of the hike to angels is thrilling... More

2.5 miles one way, 1450 ft elevation gain. Steep switchbacks, a cool,shady flat canyon, and the 'wiggles' (short steep switchbacks) to the 2 mile point which is called Scouts landing (where many people stop.) The last 1/2 mile is along a very steep, narrow spine of the mountain, chains provided. Although it looks daunting when you first see the spine,... More

Yes, a real cardiac work-out and, for most of the way (to Scout's Landing) a wide and safe trail. "Walter's Wiggles", a series of tight switchbacks designed by the first park superintendent, are good fun. Beyond, Scout's Landing, it becomes something of a climb and rock scramble. There are gaps between the handrail-type chains, and you really need to pay... More

This is a busy place. To maximize your experience go early in the day as it gets crowded and depending on the time of year. . .very hot! This is listed as a two hour hike. The first hour will get you to Scouts Landing. The hike begins with a series of steep paved switch backs with the rock face... More

We loved it. It's over rated as hard. It's a cardiac work out but paved wide all the way to top. Beautiful site. Now if your a climber and want danger you may go higher . It was way too dangerous for me and I love to climb. There seemed to be a gap in chains right at the beginning... More

This is a truly spectacular hike. You only hike about half of it then you climb/scale the rest. Parts of it were quite scary but if you are sensible you will be fine. Being 2000meters in the air is amazing and the view is worth the fright and hard work.

As for many people, before we went to Zion doing Angels Landing was kind of a thing. We had it on our list and we really wanted to try. We decided to go early, first tip: please go early! Why? It's wáy less dangerous at that point. When we got back down from Angels Landing and took a little break,... More

This is a world class hike, unforgettable. On the shuttle bus the narrative playing over the speakers talks about the hike in ominous language, strenuous, dangerous, not for most people. But that's just the last section of the hike, the first section, the two miles to Scout's Landing, can be done by most people. The path is paved much of... More

We got on the first shuttle on 10/16/15 for this hike. It was steep going up the switchbacks. The chain area was scary to me. My husband and I had hiked Half Dome (Yosemite NP) 3 years ago and both felt this was equally nerve wracking. Others hiking didn't seem to be bothered one bit. Views at the top were... More

Great hike for someone who is reasonably fit and has good knees. Fantastic views but scary for those very afraid of heights
