Future Hike Map

Hiked Angel’s Landing this afternoon and it was beautiful. There were a few wet spots from the morning rain, but otherwise dry. There were A LOT of people so take your time! It took us about 3.5 hours round trip and that was with a couple snack stops and waiting for people to go up and down.

Though not the most well known, definitely well worth it. I almost preferred this hike over Angles Landing. You get different beautiful views around every corner instead of just at the top. Start out early to beat the crowds and to have a great seat at the top.

Beautiful lookout, especially through the arch.

Great trail. Steep hike. Ditch the poles,spikes and snow shoes.

Busy even on a Wednesday morning in march. Great views, but follow the people around you, easy to make the trip longer.

Beautiful views! This is a demanding hike but worth it.

(3/22/18) I hiked this trail today. Probably my favorite hike to date in RMNP. It was an absolute blast. Lots of snow the entire trail but it was packed. My wife and I only used spikes. Never needed the snowshoes we brought. After the Loch it does become quite a bit more challenging but definitely doable. The last obstacle was difficult today. Very slick and not much to grab but was able to do it using poles. Several other people in front and behind us stopped right before the obstacle. Would highly recommend at least spikes and poles. We saw several other people not using them but would be much more difficult. AWESOME TRAIL.

Beautiful hike down through some incredible formations that include a couple of natural bridges. Some muddy sections this time of year.

Definitely a challenge. I have a major fear of heights and I decided to just do it. (Nike would be proud y’all). Had second thoughts halfway into it but it’s like a roller coaster: you really can’t go back. Crowds tend to keep you moving forward and it’s challenging on the chains. The views, however, were so so worth it.

Moral of the story: WORTH IT. Brave your fear of heights but also be careful.

hard but worth while!

Beautiful, as expected it was pretty crowded. If you wait out a few mins between groups it is a pretty good climb without dealing with back and forth traffic on the narrow path given. Definitely, invest in hiking shoes for this hike. A lot of crazy college kids who would jump and run the hike. Patience is key to enjoy the beautiful view at the top!!!

Hiked 3/14. Made it all the way up with boots and poles. Poles were a must or at least spikes as it's steep and slippery. The last mile I was sinking in the snow quite a bit so I actually put snowshoes on to get back down to the river bottom. Awesome winter hike!

The hike is pretty easy, but fun nonetheless. Glad we hiked when we did, the weather was in the upper 30's to low 40's with sunny skies. This helped to keep the crowds down but when we heading back to the parking lot, the trail was very crowded. Coming around the bend to the arch was breathtaking. Worth taking the time to see this beautiful natural arch. Would hate to do this hike in the summer.

This is a fantastic hike. You get to see so many sites with a limited number of miles. I enjoy being down among the hoodoos and seeing them stand over you provides a different perspective than when you are on the rim. This is a must do hike for any hikers visiting Bryce Canyon.

We had a very late start at 4p. But we’re up and back down in time to catch one of the last shuttles (4:10 total trip time including 40ish minutes at the point). Since we were essentially there for sunset, we had the place to ourselves. This is an incredible hike providing visual rewards after taking step number 1. On the ‘hard’ rating spectrum, OP falls much closer to moderate.

Wonderful trail to get up close and personal with the Hoo Doos. We added Peek-a-Boo loop. There was a bit of residual ice, snow, and red muddy slush on the trail, but traction was ok in hiking boots. Views were astonishing. We saw a herd of 15 deer at the bottom.A steep climb out, but worth it.

The views throughout the entire trail are impressive..as is everything in Zion. Go early to avoid the crowds.

Quick hike, good for all skill levels and nearly all abilities (though ground is not flat)! View is incredible!

long monotonous beginning straight up one large rock, then flat for a while before reaching some really interesting terrain before the arch. Delicate Arch was packed when I went on a Sunday afternoon, and rather steep, but still amazing! Bigger than expected! Parking can be tough on busy days. Bring LOTS of water.

Amazing and Death Defying.

This trail is no secret, but it is everything it is hyped up to be and more. My friend and I did it as a spur on a longer overnight journey into Zion’s indescribably ethereal backcountry via the West Rim Trail, which I would highly recommend. There are beautiful views from the trail camps, and it really takes you through all of the classic Zion environments. The landing definitely slowed us down a bit thanks to the crowds. Walter’s Wiggles, the switchbacks on the initial climb up the canyon, are difficult, exposed and steep, but the spur up to Angel’s Landing itself is not as physically taxing as it is nerve-wracking—the trail gets to be an extremely narrow ridge at points, and you feel like a bighorn sheep! As everyone has mentioned, start at the very first light, if not earlier—that’s the best way in the desert, to beat the heat and the peeps. Nothing like jumping into the Virgin when you descend back into the valley!

Did this the day after Angel's Landing, and we thought it was very cool to look down from Observation Point and see where we hiked the day before. The way up is tiring but lunch at the top was beautiful, and let us rest for an easy hike down. While not the most well-known hike in the park, I would definitely argue it's a must-do if you visit!

Oh boy, I've done longer hikes with more elevation change, but the switchbacks here are one of the toughest stretches of trail I've found. Trail gets easier after that part though, as it's just being careful navigating the narrow parts with a bunch of people passing you. Definitely among the best day hikes I've completed; the view at the end is utterly worth it!

Fantastic hike! I would call it moderate. Be careful not to lose the trail at the end or you’ll end up walking on a somewhat treacherous path around the arch itself (which we accidentally did.)

We were there earlier this week and loved this hike! It is definitely challenging but worth it. No ice when we went but the rocks were slick. My 12 and 14 year old boys loved it. Definitely hit this trail first as it gets busy! We went around 8:30 and it was fine...a little cold but bearable. We also hit Double Arch, Windows and Balanced Rock. Those were our favorites. Drove by Fiery Furnace overlook(very cool) but cant hike that without a pass..looks pretty scary too!

Just stunning. Not too bad snow wise but there was a storm coming in after we left so it might’ve all changed. A must do if you’re in Bryce.

Spikes only needed on 3/17

Great hike—challenging with a great sense of accomplishment at the end. Please be patient when going on narrow areas; if it’s narrow and some people are descending, don’t just start your ascent and then make it difficult for people to pass. Just be patient, because this trail can be dangerous.

Recommend going early, just as sun rises. Fewer people on the trail and the worst part about this is the number of people there that make it difficult to do the hike.

Spikes are definitely needed, hiking sticks come in handy as well. Bundle/layer up for sure and enjoy the beauty that is Chasm lake, so worth the climb!!!
