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.

Three series of switchbacks as you go up the mountain. The sets are steep but manageable. Bring lots of water and protein snacks to refuel. Hike earlier in the morning to avoid big crowds and have the coolest weather. Do not bring walking sticks because...More

Feels like a very long trail while going up and try to take more water. Say at least 4-5 liters per person. You will definitely need on hot summer days. The last 0.25 to 0.5 miles is very challenging. You have to hold the chains...More

I have hiked a lot of places but this is going to be the one which I'm gonna cherish forever. This hike needs peace of mind, patience, extreme fitness, alertness and what not. We hiked Angel's landing in the month of July and started our...More

This is not one of those easy hikes that you can just decide to do on a whim. The intensity does not lie in the distance that needs to be covered or the elevation as such but in the narrowest of paths that must be...More

We did the Angels landing hike in the afternoon and its was all shaded which helped significantly with the July heat. You can just go to the look out if you don’t want to hike to the very top while holding on for dear life...More

If you are reading this, you know the Angels Landing is on everyone's top 10 US hikes. It's a little scary. It has a greater potential for falling to your doom than most hikes, but worth it. Go early. Beat the crowds! Whatever you think...More

We hiked to Angel's Landing on the 2nd day in the park. Trail has a 1400 foot elevation gain and includes Walter's wiggles, a series of switchbacks towards the top of the trail. You can choose to stop and turn around at Scout's landing, or,...More

Hiked most of this trail with my husband and kids (10 and 12) on July 4. We started out by about 8:30 am, but wish we'd started earlier because of the crowds up top. The hike starts with a couple of miles of switchbacks, the...More

What a great view at the top! This can be a challenging hike for those out of shape. I met a couple who had completed the Ironman triathlon and they completed the hike in 2 1/2 hours. I saw some overweight people returning as I...More

No but certainly helpful until you get to the chains. Then they are in the way.

Pick hikes that your 7 year old can do and enjoy. Weeping Rock, emerald pools, scouts lookout (but not to Angels Landing...could continue in rim trail). Whatever hikes you do, pace yourself based on your child & always take... More
