Angel's Landing is one of Zion's most spectular scenic outlooks; it can be reached only by a very demanding hike on the West Rim Trail.

This was a must do! The trail and the view at the end is breathtaking! Such a rewarding hike! I recommend wearing good hiking shoes & taking plenty of water, as I went through four bottles. Took about 3 hours round-trip to hike & it was incredible! Best hike I've ever done!

Everyone does this hike in Zion. It is the Zion hike. Everyone goes at 6 am in the morning. This is nonsense. Sleep in, drink coffee, eat a good breakfast, let it digest. Go around noon. Yes it is hotter, but it is only a 2.3 mile hike one way. I made it up in 35 minutes then spent the... More

My best advice is to take everyone's warnings seriously and consider if this hike really is for you. After doing several of the other hiking trails in Zion we were really questioning who had done the ratings for the difficulty level and time to complete hikes, as we found they were all much shorter and easier than advertised. Then we... More

My husband did this hike and said it was the best of his life. I only made it the first third with my kids, ages 7 & 10. Truth be told it was me who chickened out because of the extreme heights and steep drop offs. There are no guard rails here so be careful. The trail is sandy because... More

This was one of the more challenging hikes I have done in terms of the level of risk. There is a very small path as you reach the top with little room for error. I would not recommend for elderly, little kids or those afraid of heights. The view is incredible and one of the best spots to take in... More

The hike is not that hard! It took 70 minutes walking up and there were lots of people in the way. 2,5 hours should bring you up, take a few photos maybe a snack and bring you back down again.

This was a strenuous hike, but well worth the hike. Make sure you have plenty of water and make an early start.....it can get crowded at the top with people all attempting to use the chain. Those with fears of edges or even height should probably not do the last 1/2 mile. The view from Scout's Landing is still worth... More

After reviewing photos and information in advance and acknowledging my own serious fear of heights, I attempted this hike. I knew I was not going all the way and wanted to see as much as I could before my fear stopped me. If you have any issue with heights, be prepared to turn around at some point. But do try... More

make sure you do not suffer from fear of heights/exposure when you do this one. if you do, simply walk the first part and wait for your partner when it gets tough. They provide chains to hold on to, if you need.
