great hike with good views of zions valleys and canyons. You need a good extent of comfort with being at height while hiking, there are few points along the trail when you hike just besides a cliff. if you are the kind who can faint at heights, dont do this hike. With reasonable expertise for hiking you should be able... More

My brother and I completed this in about 2.5 hours top to bottom and that was with people holding us up on the way up and down. We are averagely fit 20 somethings. Allow for 30mins to stay at the top and take in the seriously breathtaking views. This is possibly the most spectacular hike I have ever done. An... More

One of the best hikes for non rock climbing thrill seekers. The last half mile is one of the most trilling hikes you will go on short of using ropes. The views at the top are breath taking. A must do if you are in pretty good shape.

Like the challenge and the view. It's like climbing on rock stairs. They made the trail easier and safer with chains. Dislike the weather stopped me in the middle of the trail. I was in the rain and hail for about 20 minutes because I couldn't find a shelter.

A friend told me that even if you do not hike to the top ... it is well worth it if you just go as far as you can. I took that advice and found that the changing views of the Canyon are worth trying this trail.

This is a confusing hike to review as it's really two hikes: the initial hike to Scout's Lookout, and the subsequent climb to Angel's Landing. The first hike is very average in terms of difficulty, with spectacular views all the way up. It's not strenuous. If you have a little experience hiking and can endure a 2 hour hike, you'll... More

As you can tell from the title, I did not do the scary part of the hike, but did do the entire trail up to that point. The hike is decently strenuous with a lot of switchbacks going up the canyon. Eventually you make it out of the main canyon and suddenly find yourself in a cool, shady, wooded area.... More

My husband and I hiked this trail. It is amazing, rewarding and quite an achievement for any hiker. The views are amazing. It is dangerous. We thought the toughest part was at Scout's Landing at the beginning of climbing the rocky trail that leads to the top. It was very slippery and steep for the first 10 minutes or so.... More

I have a terrible fear of heights. I only made it to Scout Outlook, and about half way up to Angels Landing from there. The sweaty palms, shakes, pounding heart, racing pulse, etc got the better of me. Not to mention the signs warning of the deaths there over the last few years. Anyone with fear can at least make...
