My two older children and I travelled to Zion National Park and hiked Angel's Landing. We are still talking about the experience we had and the danger that was involved. My daughter who was 25 was not "fit" for mountain hiking but she did fine except for wearing athletic shoes that were slippery. My son, age 30, loved the hike... More

I have hiked this trice once in the fall and then again in the spring. The fall trip had very few people on the trail but had to turn back because of Ice and snow. The spring trip was different lots of people on the trail . At some points it was a little uncomfortable trying to pass other on... More

My husband and son (both quite fit mountaineers) did this in just over 2 hours leaving at about 11am on a Saturday in March whilst my daughter-in-law and I ambled along the river walk admiring the views and squirrels who tried to convince us they were in imminent danger of starvation - we didn't feed them! They said that having... More

This was a difficult hike for my 10 year old son. He wasn't able to finish the final .5 of a mile because it was very steep and required good balance and the ability to climb with chains. My 16 year old loved the hike.

The path is paved all the way to Scout's Landing which provides great views. The last 1/2 mile with sheer cliff drop-offs has chains to help keep people safe; we decided to skip that part and just take pictures from the Landing. The trail is a definite workout with a 2 mile climb, and you need to be sure to... More

Wow what a hike what an amazing place! I was trying to take me camera up there but not a great idea as I really needed to use both hands sometimes. Yes it's very scary but totally worths it! I will go there again!

I knew this was going to be an uphill battlr, literally so I made sure to bring lots of water. The trail offers little shade so start early in the morning to avoid the worst heat during the worst inclines. The last half mile where people freak out isn't that bad. I was too focused on the trail to worry... More

Not for the faint of heart! The only things that would keep someone away would be the very exposed cliffs, or the crowds. Coming off peak times and seasons will help the latter, but there is no getting away from the former.

I was on my way back down, and some people were coming up at me, using the chain to pull themselves along. I stepped to the side a little bit to make some room so they could get by me. A few of them looked up at me and the expression on their faces said it all. "Dude, are you... More

Get out there early to beat the crowds. It's definitely a pain to pass through certain areas of the trail with traffic in both directions. There's some spots where you'll want to be holding on to the chains. Overall, well worth it and amazing view from the top.
