One of the best viewing hikes we’ve ever done near Sedona. Challenging yet some parts were easy. A few Rock scrambles and some incredible vistas to be seen from such a high elevation. It took us 5 hours and we stopped up top to eat our lunch. Greatly appreciated the white markers on the rocks.Amazing and be sure to pack lots of water. Not much shade on this hike . We started at 9:30 am and were happy to have some cloudy parts to the day. Enjoy!

11 hours 45 minutes

I went up recently "the legal backway", it was very muddy and slippery. Crampons(spikes) recommended. I've done this hike many times. Thinking of going up this weekend. if you'd like to join send me a message on instagram @angelo_q or email me at chicolo@hotmail.com Make sure to bring plenty of water and food and maybe some layers because it can get pretty windy and wet up top

Really great hike. Started at 5:00 AM and parking lots was getting full. I definitely felt the elevation. I recommend a few days to acclimate before attempting the hike.

Angel's Landing is a great hike, but start out early to avoid the large crowds. The trail can get backed up with people which can lead to gridlock. I went as far as the chains, but the gusty winds stopped me from going to the spine. This trail seemed easier than Observation Point which I had done a few days earlier.

It’s relatively easy to go off trail. Pay attention to the paint markers!

Vernal and Nevada trail is the hardest part. Once you past that, the rest of the trail is a piece of cake until you get to the sub dome part. Be prepared to scramble your way up to get to the end.

Amazing but add about 2 hours more to your time due to snow. Definitely need crampons and poles. Snow is knee and higher at some points and very slippery. Took us about 7 hours return with crampons.

Going up/down the chains was fun — but not for those with a fear of heights. Did it later in the day so there was less waiting on the way down.

2nd best views of the island.

This hike is amazing! You get awesome views, a great workout, and some adrenaline with the drop offs :). We just hiked it yesterday. It was a Saturday and UEA weekend in Utah so I knew it would be busy. We got there by 6:50 to catch the first shuttle. We actually didn’t make the first shuttle but waited 10 minutes and caught the second. The hike took us 2.5 hours but we kept a good pace. Going up was great and not many people. Coming back down, the people started coming and we were slowed a bit. The weather in the fall is perfect. We started a little chilly but were just right with a light jacket the rest of the way. By the time we got back to our cars around 11, the line for a shuttle was probably a two hour wait so get there early if you want to avoid the crowds.

great views, but extremely busy. We went early and were able to beat the crowds a bit. I'd recommend going at sunrise instead of sunset to avoid glares in photos.

Amazing trail! it's mostly paves until you get to the overlook. Be prepared for a lot of switchbacks. Another trail that you should get there early to beat the crowds, especially if you do the part with the chains. I'm afraid of heights and I was able to do the chains part, just go slow and focus on your steps, it's totally worth it to go to the end. My GPS said the trail is longer than 4.1 miles but who knows.

Agree with the reviewer below - the last stretch from Clouds Rest foot trail was a test to the nerves, but totally worth it. The hike wasn’t that bad physically until the last stretch. I’d highly recommend getting there as early as you can (before 8am) to start this so you can enjoy the top in peace.

Left the trail head at 7:30 and got to clouds rest at 11:20. Yes the switchbacks on the first half of the trail are hard, but we thought the final push to the top was worse on the muscles. Having said that, it’s rated hard for a reason and the views were truly stunning. Only disappointment was there was a tech charter bus that dropped off 33 hikers right before us so the top was crowded and loud. Left there around 12:15 and got back to the sunrise trailhead at 3:15 with our joints telling us “enough already.” Coming from a mild acrophobic the narrow rock bridge to clouds rest tested my nerves but the views are 100% worth it and would do this hike again after exploring a couple other areas of the park we just haven’t gotten to yet.

Amazing views and a really fun hike. There was a grid lock on the end part at angels landing where people couldn’t move for twenty minutes!

Ahahaha, the map says it all. That’s not a child scribbling or your lie detector test! This hike is a griiiind of relentless switchbacks. Can’t beat the views at the end though (for the most part there are not a lot of views on the way up due to the forest), and also the option for the free ride back down in the gondola (in certain parts of the winter season). Nice to have a restaurant option and little museum/shop also.

very nice, moderate hike. we did the AP up and the fire road back which took about 4.5 hours. Fire road much easier path. I like the sort stretches of steep elevation change and then nice meandering paths between. Wonderful views at the top. definitely worth it. we started about 8:45 and parking lot full. ar 1:30 when we finished it was a zoo in the parking lot.

I enjoyed the entire hike in and out. the canyon and falls are beautiful and nice to see in person.

Breathtakingly beautiful! Fairly intense. The peak is not for those afraid of heights. However, Hiking to the first saddle is a must do even for the faint and fearful hearted.

Definitely a tough trail, but worth the effort. Took us just under 4 hours.

The views are spectacular, but the crowds are not. On the final ascent, be prepared to wait in a queue line up a precipitous ridge. Impatient people will climb around you and put you at risk.

I gone down 2 hours and 45 min., and up 3 hours and 27 min.
It was very hard but perfectly flow feeling.

So many people. I didn’t feel this was worth the time, make for a great insta photo but the views are not that great.

This was one of the first trails I did, and it was a wonderful introduction into hiking. Go early in the morning as it gets very busy (there’s a teahouse up there - not Agnes teahouse, although that’s close by) and make the extra 1km trek to go have lunch in front of lefroy and upper Victoria glacier. You’ll see a few avalanches for sure.

Truly amazing hike with breathtaking views from the summit. Trail had dusting of snow up to treeline. This lower section was icy on descent...YakTrax were helpful. Above treeline snow was a bit deeper, but trail is clear and doable with boots... snowshoes won't be really necessary until another snow or two. Wife and I summited with boots and YakTrax...poles are a must as traction can be difficult on the steeper sections.

Pretty easy hike with a fairly steep incline at the end. The views from up top and the “devils bridge” are pretty amazing. Most of the hike is along a dirt road.

Awesome trail. Tricky in some spots as markers are not very clear. Breath taking view from the top makes it all worth it. Bring plenty of water to hydrate.

Great, short hike. It’s a workout, but you are rewarded with terrific views. The lake is incredibly beautiful!
