Amazing, fun hike!
10.13.18, started at 1030, and got to Angels Landing at 12. And just relaxed and enjoyed the view!
The two multi-switchbacks were brutal! But after that, the climb with the chains to AL was the most fun! Please don’t give up! It’s an experiment that you need to see! You’ll be super proud of yourself!
The temperature was around 50-60F, so we packed extra jacket, don’t! You’ll be sweating hot with the hike! So don’t need the extra weights. One would be enough.
Would recommended to go early to catch the first bus to avoid all the traffics. Had to stop a couple times to give way to people going up. Yup it was one way one person traffic! So be considerate and give way to people.
Remember to have fun, stay hydrated and enjoy the hike!

I hiked this trail in April 2010. This hike changed my life. It was scary and brilliant at the same. When I got the bottom I thought oh my God I just walked the side of a mountain with one hand on a rope chain while people passed around me. It was crazy and exhilarating at the same time. I made it to the very peak (my co-hort made it as far as Scout’s Overlook) and it was worth the strenuous effort. I did it once but I’ll not do it again. This is a trail to make one grand memory from. And I’ll never forget mine. Incredibly impactful.

The arch wasn't nearly as impressive as the hike leading up to it.

Favorite hike of all time! It challenged my fear of heights. But since it’s an out and back it can get pretty backed up so I strongly recommend staying away during peak times like sundays and holidays. It can ruin a lot of the hike by spending so much time waiting. I would share this hike with anyone I came across I 10/10 recommend!!!

I read a lot of the reviews saying “if you’re afraid of heights, I do not recommend this hike”... well I’m terrified of heights and I went into this hike expecting to have some sort of panic or anxiety along the way. The exact opposite happened! I loved this hike. I went with someone who is a pretty fearless hiker, which helped me in multiple ways. The chains along the steep cliffs also provided a sense of relief and comfort! The very heavy trail traffic made this hike take a lot longer than it should have, but it was still worth it. Only recommendation if doing in the fall (or spring too I’m assuming) is bring gloves, those chains along the trail that you need to use at the top get cold!

Second time here to the narrows and just as beautiful as ever! Make sure you wear the right shoes though and preferably have hiking poles; we passed quite a few people trying to attempt this barefoot with no poles or anything and they looked like they were having a horrible time. It’s worth it to come prepared! :)

I love it, October was a great month to do it, it was not hot at all and it was not crowded.

Beautiful hike and beautiful views!

Nice paved path to get you to the start of the water. Watch your step in the water and you should be good, take your time, it’s crowded, always!

Best hike ever. A lot of elevation and the chains helped A LOT! Incredible views bottom to top

Did the loop counter clockwise starting at inspiration point and walking the rim to Sunset. Took Navaho's switchback decent past marvelous natural sites like three trees climbing from floor to above the HooDoos. Joined the Queens loop at the bottom and took that to sunrise point where we caught the last shuttle back to the car. Weather was perfect and the trails only crowded at the start of Navaho. After reaching the bottom the crowds were gone. This trail combination is listed as the most popular and moderate. This is mid October and while the hotels were full it looked like our trails weren't overflowing.

very easy trail for a relaxing walk by the river. beautiful landscape.

It's a nice stretch and you can see a garden on the rocks and squirrels and mules. Was exciting and mostly used as a trail head to narrows.

amazing!!

Challenging trail, very hot on the day we went(105). Trail crowded in spots. Worth it!

Great hike! The Zion National Park team has done a great job fixing the trail since its ladt closure in July.

My first proper hike up a running river thru beautiful 2000’ tall narrow sandstone canyons that have been formed over millions of years from the Virgin Rivers constant flow down South eventually ending in Lake Powell

Feeling blessed, its surely worth it!! If you like to get the feel of zion this is a must... Its refreshing and surely tiring. The angels landing part is surely strenuous but worth the effort. I was so happy and proud of myself after this. Worth a lifetime.. Have fun and dont miss this. Carry at least 3lts of water per person, lot of salty snacks and good gear.

A strenuous climb just to Scouts Lookout especially in last week’s humid heat. This is a great hike to do once.

Man was this tough. I was pretty exhuasted while going up. But I made it, so I know if I can, you probably can. It was well worth it. I only went to Scouts Lookout however since Angels Landing was closed from falling rocks.

Perfect hike if you have a limited time in Bryce! Definitely do the connecting trails if you can! Bryce is such a special and unique National Park!

Such a beautiful hike the entire way!!! I wish I was wearing more water appropriate shoes. It makes me want to buy Chacos. I hiked in my hiking boots and it took two days to air them out haha. There was a forest fire on the day I went and the sky was this gorgeous orange color even tho it was around noon time. The orange sky bouncing off the colors of the walls of the creek and the slot canyon were to die for. I want to bring friends here and see it again!

Definitely a bucket list hike. Wasn’t as challenging as I thought it would be. I carved out time for the rest of my day to rest but I totally could have allowed myself to do more hikes and make the most of my day in Zion. I hiked this alone and it was fun how friendly everyone is. I made friends along the way. Enjoyed it a lot!

Excellent hike and very rewarding. It’s very busy though, even early in the morning, so don’t assume you’ll find much solitude. It’s pretty steep in places and do not attempt if you’re afraid of heights

spectacular hike. tough, exhilarating and awesome. highly recommend this trail......with one condition, if you are afraid of heights don't do this trail.

Finished hike in a little over 3 hours. Beautiful views up top. Bucket list hike worthy. Chains are gonna be your best friend at the top.

Amazing. Tough hike but well worth it whennyoubget to the top.

Spectacular views and a must do if you have limited time (I did it easily in 90 mins) and want to experience being down in the canyon. Unless you love switchbacks and want to maximize the climb out effort start at the Sunset Point / Navajo end!
