I just hiked Angel's Landing for my second time last weekend. The reward from getting up here is stunning 360 degree views of Zion Canyon. I can honestly say I don't think it's as scary or treacherous as everybody makes it sound (I just read a Los Angeles Times article about how dangerous it is and should be regulated. I... More

Reviewers have captured the essence of the first part of this hike so I won't be redundant, however I have a tip for those of you who don't wish to risk your life on the last .5 miles (warning signs await you telling of the folks that have died on this last leg). For in shape hikers who aren't into... More

I would really recommend this walk, the view from the top is incredible, but when we were there we saw a lot of people who didn't seem to take the warnings that seriously and were wearing inappropriate shoes. It's really not for the faint of heart or those who are scared of heights - it's also quite a relentless walk... More

This is a great hike in Zion as I'm sure you have read. Starts easy enough but builds to some steep switchbacks. Just to add something unique (hopefully) for those of you that are afraid of heights. There is a point about 2 miles in where the paved path starts to switch back and forth and reaches a crescendo around... More

It's like going to Seattle and not going to the top of the Space Needle. Just do it. It's fun to go all the way to the top. Holding onto chains, etc . . The park has done a great job to make the trail as safe as possible. Buttttt, the view after "Walters Wiggles" is a classic view of... More

Challenging hike, but doable for most if you take your time. Crowds were bad in the afternoon, including plenty of hikers that didn't look like they were taking seriously the dangerous elements of the upper parts of this hike. Beautiful view and well-maintained trail. Must-do!

Amazing, exhilarating, fear conquering, did I say amazing? This was one of things I had to do in Zion. I'm not a thrill seeker necessarily but after watching videos on YouTube and reading about this hike I knew I had to do it. I'm 52 and in good shape and was in Zion with my 20 yr old daughter. My...

This is the ultimate experience to see Zion national park from a bird's eye view. The view is spectacular and a definite bucket list item. The trail is paved all they way until you are on the spine. It has chains to hold onto. The elevation gain is pretty steep, but you are on a paved trail. No sand. easy!!!!... More

Pay your $12 park entry fee, jump on the free shuttle in town and head inside the park. Exit at bus stop 3, cross the road over the bridge and your on your way. 3.5hr strenuous 1700ft round trip. Not for the faint hearted. The last 30min your feet away from the 1700ft cliff edge holding on to chains for... More

When I read the reviews here before going to Angel's Landing, I got worried. I was scared about if I was going to fall off the cliff. But let me tell you this, it's not as daunting as you would think. If you are scared of heights, obviously, but if not, it's nothing to worry about. The only difficult portion... More
