Great views! Unfortunatly for us, we have to avoid last sector by icy.
For me one of the best perspectives.

Beautiful view from the top! Well worth the effort. My then 7 year old was a little nervous about the narrow top portion of the hike, but she toughed it out and wasn’t scared once we were at the wide and mostly flat top of the peak.

We hiked AL on Dec. 1st. 2018. We could not have asked for better weather. The condition of the tral was excellent. I would recommend checking the forecast, have good hiking shoes or boots and bring plenty of water and protein. Bars/bananas etc. The view from the top and also along the way is phenomenal. Cheers.

Awesome experience!!! I loved everything about this hike!!

Amazing rewarding hike to angels landing, with the 360 views at the top making the uphill struggle worth it. Is strenuous with Steep incline to the top with lots of switchbacks and with the final kilometre having chains to help up to the top of angels landing along a steep ridge. Definitely not for those scared of heights. Took us about 2 hours to get to the top but took plenty of rest stops along the way and about an 1.5 down. To get to trailhead there is shuttle bus service as the road is for shuttle bus only but buses come every few minutes and run until after sunset. The trail was very busy even in mid November.

Really beautiful hike. Moderate in terms of the physical effort. Hard if you’re scared of heights.

An experience I’ll never forget. This backcountry is absolutely stunning. My friends and I signed up for the lottery twice. Got picked on the 2nd attempt. We arrived and made acquaintances with our fellow lottery winner and a volunteer hiker, Charlie. He ended up guiding us all the way to the Wave and giving us some lessons along the way. Best way to spend my birthday week! Try to grab a spot on the BLM page. If not, best of luck on the day you sign up at the BLM office!

Fun hike on Thanksgiving.

The last half mile is an outstanding hike with a few fun sections and the view is amazing at the top! Unfortunately the first part of the hike is extremely crowded and it’s basically a paved path of switchbacks all the way up. Regardless of the crowd it’s well worth it if you can make it to the end.

I won the Lottery! The lottery today was for Thanksgiving & Black Friday. 90 groups, representing 264 hikers, wanted the 20 permits. I feel like Charlie from Wllly Wonka and the Chocolate factory. I was the last one called for Friday. I got the last winning ticket. My first time in the walk up lottery. Did I mention I won the Lottery?

Love love loved this area!!!

Get there early to beat the crowds

Absolutely must at the Zion's ! Incredible experience in the middle November..it gets really cold and dark, when the sun goes down. Beautiful and breathtaking view !

We loved this hike through Zion Canyon! We thought we were arrived after the first meters chain but the true ascension was just beginning! The view really worth the effort! Be sure to have hiking shoes and no dizziness.

It was truly amazing!

The absolute most beautiful, breathtaking hike I have ever done in my life! Absolutely recommend hiking Angels Landing!! Don’t let your fear of heights stop you, just do it!

Make sure your boots are tied.

Super fun hike. We felt safe with the chain just make sure you make smart moves and you will enjoy it much more than worrying about falling off the cliff.
Make sure to take breaks because the whole thing is very strenuous.

Best hike I've ever done

Nice way to test your mind, have fun!

Did this hike last summer. Excellent hike! The parking lot was packed with cars when we arrived, but only saw 2 other groups of people during the hike to Granite Lake. Passed some beautiful meadows along the way. Took two dogs with us and had a lot of fun.

Fantastic trail, but the last half mile is pretty strenuous and terrifying. The views are worth it if you can persist. By far the most challenging but rewarding hike I’ve ever done. It’s longer than advertised here, more like 5 miles. The first 2 miles are a series of switchbacks that get very steep in places and never seem to end. These stop at Scout’s Landing, where many people turn around after taking in the views. The last half mile is mostly climbing. Proper footwear and plenty of water are essential, and do not bring small children or pets. We are 50 and in decent shape but not used to higher elevations, and it took us 4+ hours round trip, which included plenty of stops and a slow pace thanks to my fear of heights. So glad I did this. But it really is every bit as scary as advertised, so don’t take it lightly.

Did this trail last year in November! Start early as it gets crowded on the chains section! Very strenuous but the most amazing views! Don’t attempt this if you’re scared of heights!

I did this hike on Thursday, Nov 8. I started around 9 and it took a total of 3 hours. 9 seems like a great time to start as there weren’t that many people around while going up - definitely got crowded while I was coming back, I did a lot of waiting for lines of people to pass as I was descending.

The hike was very fun. Obviously you have to be smart on this trail but there was no point where I felt like I was in danger. Stay on the correct side of the chains and be sure of your footing.

Don’t make the final push to the summit if you’re having second thoughts. Scouts Lookout has a great view as well.

Don’t feed the chipmunks.

Excellent trail - not difficult at all beyond the distance. Great scenery at the Heart of Rocks Loop. Pleasant along the way with some open, hilly terrain and other forested terrain. Great place to get away from things and take some pics without pushing oneself too hard with a tough climb.
