Angel's Landing is the epitome of hiking in Zion National Park. The trail is manageable by everyone ten and above. If you are afraid of heights take the trail to where the chain starts and then rest while the others in your party "summit." The views both up and down the canyon you experience at the top of Angel's Landing... More

We were nervous to do this hike because I thought I would be a little scared once I got to the part where you use the chains. However since this was our first time to Zion and we aren’t sure if we will get the chance to go back, we decided we had to do this hike and we are... More

Best hike I did in Zion and it lived up to its reputation. The main trail is paved which makes it easy to hike, it does get steep in places. Once you get to the top area the real fun begins as you traverse along steep rock faces along chains. If you are terrified of heights then this is not... More

we took the first bus out into the park for this hike and it was a good thing we did. we seemed to be the second people to reach the top, so we didnt have to deal with passing people on the narrow trail that we had to do on our way back. i have a slight feat of flights... More

Recommend you set up before sun-up on the first shuttle bus from the Zion entry point. We were on the first bus in the dark, but by the time we starting climbing the sky was getting light. The path up is quite steep with numerous switchbacks. The last part of the climb requires a steady nerve with chains to hold... More

Last year we hiked up to Scout's Lookout, barely. That's the most difficult two miles I've ever hiked, although I wasn't in good shape at all. We stopped so many times to rest and hydrate, thought it would never end. Once at the top, I didn't even consider continuing on to Angel's Landing. I was so exhausted, just glad to... More

This is where you end up if you do not go all the way up Angel’s Landing. This is a good hike which is best done early in the day to avoid too much sun. The views are spectacular. The hiking can be slightly strenuous but very enjoyable. I did not go up to Angel's Landing since I have a... More

Great views and walk up. We were there when an electrical storm and flash flood so we saw the canyon come to life and had to get out (quickly). It was lots of fun. I wouldn't recommend climbing the metal chains during an electrical storm though..

This is ALL about the views. How we got there: Fly into Vegas. Rent a car and drive 2 and half hrs, maybe 2h 45m, to Springdale, UT, a teeny-tiny town right at the doorstep of Zion National Park. If staying in town, reserve your lodging ahead of your trip because they fill up. The town shuttles are free. All... More

Beautiful and maybe totally worth it. We made it all the way to the top , however it started to hail and I literally was clutching for my life. I think that they should have some more warnings because I believe you have to be in pretty good shape to do this hike and it is much more dangerous than... More
