My wife and I climbed this on our honeymoon. The beginning is just walking up ramps, and about halfway it turns into a steeper rock climb. I wouldn't take any kids on this hike. You will definitely want to start this hike early in the morning and bring plenty of water and some food. It isn't something you should miss... More

Whew is all I can say. It's about two in half mile hike and sometimes the walkway is almost vertical most people I saw walking up were definitely breathing hard (including me)It's worth it if you make it to the top.

This trail is filled with beautiful views all the way to the top. While we hiked, a "Blue Angel" flew right through the canyon at our eye level! Pretty thrilling! Once to "Scouts Lookout", you have to use cables, although not all sections of it HAVE cables, and you only have your own common sense and balance to rely on.... More

Driving along the base of Angel's landing made me wish that I could have experienced the view from the top. I believe there are hiking trails; from what I can understand, they call it Angel's Landing because only an Angel can land on the small ledge. Wishing I was an Angel.

This is an easy hike to the top but a few tricky spots with cables like a mini Half Dome. Beware if you are not fit or are afraid of heights. The views up top are so worth it, don't chicken out. September 2011.

Proud to say I made it to Scouts Lookout while carrying my son on my back. Not at all easy and by far the most beautiful part of the park for us. Wasn't going to do the last bit while wearing my son but glad that I did this part of the trail.

This is a very hard hike . . . not for the weary or intimidated. We hiked it (dad(45), mom(39), teen(15) and pre-teen(10). Let me say we are fit and were all short of breath! Remember 9,000 feet elevation people. AMAZING!!! You are at the top of the mountain and can even rock climb at the end (we did not... More

Our Angel's Landing hike was one of the most memorable things that we did on our trip out west; I may even go as far as to say that it was my highlight of the year. As you have probably read, the hike is fairly strenuous and consists of steep switchbacks all the way to Scout's Lookout. Once you have... More

I'm an avid hiker and this hike was work, but that being said, my ten year old son made it most of the way (although it took a lot of encouragement). When we got to the point where you have to use the chains he was too afraid to go further and quite frankly, I was more scared of him... More
