The view from the top of Angel's Landing is THE view of Zion Canyon. The reward for completing this hike is a scene you will never forget and a scene that photographs cannot do justice. I noticed when I was hiking up that everyone coming down seemed to be happy. Once I reached the top I knew why. I was... More

We had decided to pass on this hike due to its 'strenuous" listing, but after chatting with an informed local we reconsidered and decided that we (three 60+ year old Florida flatlanders) could do this... and we did! The hike is hard and not for anyone scared of heights BUT the reward is a mega payoff visually! Many folks stopped... More

We ( me, my husband and a friend) started this hike late morning in November (perfect time of year)...although I'd probably go earlier next time around. It's a long and winding road up to Scout's Overlook which offers a lovely view at over 5000 feet high. The hike up to this point is strenuous, but not scary. After admiring the... More

This hike is intense to say the least. You start out meandering near the river and then begin the journey upwards. The trail is windy and you feel like you're climbing for decades before you reach the apparent top. Then, you must traverse the sandstone cliffs by holding on to chains drilled into the side of the cliff. This was... More

Get an early start because it gets crowded. It was spitting a bit when we started therefore only my husband and son did the last 1/2 mile hike. It was a bit to slippery for my daughter and myself. The last 1/2 mile as extreamly scary! Take water and snacks and your camera:)

This hike is an elevated quite strenuous hike going up and much easier coming down. At the very top, it is treacherous to say the least but there is a huge sense of accomplishment if you complete the whole thing. I have a fear of heights and was not comfortable doing the very top where you hold chains and are... More

A long,winding, strenuous hike with amazing views.Be sure to pack water and healthy snacks, and wear comfortable hiking boots. Trust yourself to know if you should continue to the top - you will be gripping chains and counting on your sure-footing for the last 1/2 mile to the top. The view from the top is an unbelievable reward...bring your camera... More

July 2014 - Hands down, this is my favorite hike EVER! As I'm sure you've gathered by now, there are chains, the path is steep and narrow, and you really don't want to fall! If you're up for the adventure, here are some tips to make it a success: 1. Leave early and pack water and snacks. The temperatures in... More

I am NOT a fan of heights, my boyfriend and I had decided to take a day and hike up some trails. He chose this one. WOW incredible view but defiantly a scary hike to the top of this little rock but on the way down is even worse since I was looking down most of the time to make... More

This hike is not for the faint of heart for 2 reasons. 1) it is long and steep at times 2) it is dangerous at times. That being said, if you pay attention and take plenty of water you should be fine. Hint - coming back down is harder than going up, so be sure you are good with coming... More
