This is a relatively short hike, which makes it great for families, dogs, people who don't like to hike, etc. There are a couple tricky spots (ladder and wires assist), but other than that this is a quick hike with a spectacular arch at the end. We hiked on a 55 degree sunny day and I can't imagine hiking much warmer than that. It was perfect!
Thanks to the previous reviews, we had directions and knew we needed 4 wheel drive.
We parked and took our razor in 4x4 to the trailhead. It was about 4 miles, then hiked with young kids. My 6 year old loves it. The hike was simple, other than a few tall rocks we had to boost the little one up. Great views!
Although we have driven up many times without any traffic, including the night before this drive, we took the tram this time as we were doing Angel's Landing and then cooling off at the Narrows. Drove up through Springdale and parked on the side of the road just opposite the entrance to the drive. We got there early so secured one of these hallowed spots. Think we got the first or second tram of the morning because there were only 6 people on the tram. We rode up to the Grotto and got off, then did a spectacular hike to the top of Angel's Landing. It was only 109 degrees in the valley when we got down, so we took the tram the rest of the way to the Narrows and cooled our feet in the river.... ahhhhhh.... that's the way to do it! Zion is absolutely heavenly, in step where angels dare to tread. Don't miss the scenic driving or the hiking or the views or encountering mule deer or bighorn sheep.
Absolutely beautiful trail. Mostly paved until you reach the last 1/2 mile and then it's a scramble up the spine to the top. This is not a trail for the faint of heart, you feel very exposed at times with 1000+ foot shear cliffs feet from the trail on either side. It's well worth it - the view from angel's landing is incredible. Must-hike trail in Zion. I'd recommend going in the offseason, we hiked this in early February and I wouldn't want I go up and down the sketchy part with any more hikers on the trail than there were that day...plus the weather was absolutely perfect.
