Have done angels landing 4 times and will most likely not do it again unless they start some form of permit or limited hikes per day, etc. There is way too many inexperienced people on this hike. I've seen people in flip flops, bare foot holding dress shoes, 5 year old kids crying. This is NOT a place for any of that. They make the trail dangerous. There are times were you're standing on the side of a cliff have to inch around people due to so much traffic. Too many tourists who should not be up there. On a another note, beautiful views from the top. Get on the first bus of the day to beat the crowds.

This hike was awesome! I did it back in April, 2018, before the storm. I took the advice others have given and got on one of the first buses out and had little traffic on the way up but lots on the way down.

spectacular!

Short easy hike. Nice scenery, iconic sight Zion NP.

A great Hike. Like others say, start early.....we started at 8am but 7am would have been even better as if you plan to do Primative loop as we did then the last 45 minutes back to the Landscape Arch (assuming a clockwise loop) could be a little punishing if not adequately prepared on a hot day.
The Arches are all fantastic in their own way and quite unique. We enjoyed a treat of mother and young deer feeding at Landscape Arch which was great. If you choose to take the Primative loop and assuming it is dry then there is nothing too difficult although if in doubt spot the cairns (rock piles) which indicate the way. Also around Double O arch of you wish to find the Primative loop (again clockwise) then pass through the arch and pass around the fin to find the trail. That was the most difficult part of the trail to stay on. We took just over 4 hours with 2 children (15and12. Very rewarding hike. Primative Loop only has one arch (Private Arch) which is beautiful but for the less confident then just turn back after Double O arch would be my suggestion.

Great views but bring plenty of water if you plan on hiking into the afternoon. Start early if you want to avoid the heat.

great hike, people are balancing rocks which is annoying, but a good hike even with little kids

easy hike, go in morning to avoid the heat and bring 2 liters water

Set Google maps to "false kiva." Could not find this trail. No cairns, no logs, nothing.

Did this one in August 2015. Brutally hot weather, but otherwise great hiking conditions.

The hike up to "base camp" was spectacular - beautifully maintained trails, pleasant elevation gain, and uninterrupted views of the canyon. I would recommend that first leg of the hike to most anybody.

The actual Angel's Landing climb is a completely different beast. Between the heat, the treacherous drop-offs, and the altitude, it was an intense hour or so. The view from the point, though, is fantastic - panoramic views of the canyon and its technicolored rock walls complimented by a dozen or so California Condors circling overhead.

A very memorable experience, and a worthy member of the hiker's hall of fame.

Good little stroll for those with young kids that want to start the feeling of walking to a ‘reward’. The waterfall trail portion was CLOSED. The cave is probably best seen in winter - nothing special in summer but feels air conditioned in the heat !!

Amazing hike with so much interest. I would suggest that if people leave out the side track to Bryce Point then this is a fairly comfortable hike and certainly not hard. Would be a shame if this trail was missed because of concern over hard grading. The East Rim to Observation Point in Zion was much tougher and that was graded Moderate. Overall Bryce is a unique place and this loop with the Navajo and Queens Garden will deliver most of the top sites in Bryce in my opinion.

Is this open yet? I am surprised to see comments from people even this week

Crowded but epic

This is a great trail. I highly recommend doing it. We hit the trail by 7:45 and completed it in just under five hours and we took our time. The trail is well marked but you have to pay attention for the cairns. I think the route is better if you go clockwise.

Sooooo many people....

A little scrambling at the top

Best arch in the national park! And the hike wasn’t as hard as some may say. Just make sure you start early enough to beat the heat and avoid crowds. We started at 7 am and that was the perfect time. I wouldn’t recommend starting this hike midday; it should honestly be closed around 11 am - 4 pm because that heat can be dangerous!

Fun trail with three distinct sections. Just be careful, sign at trailhead lists it as “1.5....one way.” Quickly read it and assumed it was mileage for out and back (like normal...). Was in for a slightly longer trip than planned. Lots of groups complaining about water very early on and resting in any shade they could find. Also lots of little kids with no water and barely any clothing/protection. Plan appropriately, it’s lots of sun and decent climbing for families.

Super easy hike. The cave was beautiful. There was very small stream at the waterfall in August

The hike up to the Butte was fun for us but wouldn’t be wise for folks with knee/ankle issues. Views were disappointingly hazy in August 2018 from all the fires.

A nice way to see some of the best formations at Arches. We went clockwise and caught the arches before returning via the Primitive Trail. Be sure to take the time to visit Navajo, Partition, and the others adjacent to the loop itself. The main trail was filling up even at ~8 AM when we started, but we were almost all alone on the Primitive Trail (mostly sand with some rock climbing, nothing too demanding but not recommended for folks with bad knees/ankles). There’s a lot of parking, bathrooms, and a water refill station at the trailhead, but plan to spend 30 minutes getting there from the visitors center – it’s at the very end of the main road.

Trail was alright, heavily trafficked so we decided to only go to the landscape arch.

Mentally tough but rewarding hike.

This is super short and easy. It’s at the bottom of the Delicate Arch trail.

I did the spur to the Ancestral Puebloan granary. It was a moderate trail over sand and rock. It’s so worth climbing along the edge of the butte to see the granary.

This is a moderately easy trail over sand mostly. There is some scrambling over rocks closer to the arch. There’s some decent shade.

This is a nice short trail with lots of shade. There’s a small gap (maybe 2 feet) that you have to squeeze through to get to the sand dune arch.

I hiked this trail starting around 10am before it got too hot. It was pretty steep and I had to stop and catch my breath a few times. There were a lot of people in the same boat. The view from the arch was well worth the hike.

Lots of reward for one trail. Looking back I don’t know if I would have done the primitive portion unless you want the extra miles or just to say you did the whole loops. Still beautiful but nothin g you aren’t already exposed to on the earlier parts of the trail. Go early, got to the lot at 7:30 and while there was still parking had to sit around and wait for lots of inconsiderate groups standing around right in front of the arches. Took me 4 hours, being lots of water.
