This place is amazing. Make sure not to hike in flip flops. I witnessed someone falling off the ladder because they did it in flip flops. This hike is kid friendly. The second ladder needs fixed. They charge you $8 to hike it and an additional $1 per hiker to process your card. So it's really $9....so dumb but the hikes worth it.

Very easy and it is very interesting. Cool views and amazing history.

Very busy, scenery is nice. Expect waiting for shuttle back. Iconic sight Zion NP.

Had a wonderful hike with our family. Park for free and pay $8 per person for entrance. We went up both ladders and continued beyond the area where groups gather to play in the pool and slide down the waterfall/rock slide. We went probably another 0.5 miles up the creek -- probably the most scenic parts of the slot canyons with vertical walls and amazing colors and we had it all to ourselves. The ladders were tricky but manageable -- we had an adult go up and down right below our youngest (8 and 9). The ladder steps were placed fairly widely so it helped to have someone close to help with foot placement. We were there mid-July and enjoyed the cool water -- everyone was fine in water sandals (e.g, Keens)

Loved this hike! So beautiful and peaceful!! Bring water shoes!! Water is cold but refreshing! Pretty slippery too! We trail ran on the way back! Very easy! I don’t know how people bring small kids to hold though, I needed both hands to hold myself up in rocks and getting up the ladder! Very nice to take your time and enjoy the stream and waterfall!

Awesome hike, not sure when it ends though.

Guided tour. Amazing place :-)

Our group ranged in age from 4 to 69, avid hikers to couch potatoes and everyone LOVED it!!! We all would do it again!

It was one of our favorite national Park hikes. The hike guide book provided at the museum near the trailhead was helpful to learn about things along the hike. Super fun with a few narrow squeezes through rocks along the trail, cool caves, great grippy sandstone, a juniper forest, thousands year old history, etc.

great hike, did it with my 5 year old.

stop at the sweet spot for pan it and drinks.

Scenic. We hiked in the afternoon which was ideal as it was shaded. Majestic views all around! We hiked from the 6th tram stop back down to the 5th. Enjoyable.

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.

Bucket list river hike into the narrows. Walking stick recommended, can rent them just outside park. Fun, wet + beautiful.

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

This was maybe one of the most fun hikes I’ve done to date!!

Second time in the Narrows confirms my belief that this is an experience to not miss. I used 2 adjustable walking poles and which seemed to make me balance and move more safely than those with one or none. They say water shoes are not recommended. I found my water shoes to be just fine. Unless you have bad ankles I don’t think you need ankle support as long as you are cautious about foot placement. Go early (before 7:30) to avoid the crowds, and don’t miss this hike!!

This arch is a sunrise must. Get there earlier than 15 minutes before sunrise though because there were a wall of people setup with tripods hogging the entire photograph viewpoints at that time already. If not for the surprising amount of people I would’ve gave 5. Popular spot, so come early if you want a parking spot.

Mentally tough but rewarding hike.

This is a fairly strenuous trail. It gets confusing because hardly any of the trailheads are properly marked. I lost sight of the trail when I rounded the first goblin cliff. There’s a point where the trail splits and goes to the goblin valley and goes further around the cliff. To get to the Goblin Lair, you have climb down maybe 10 or 15 feet of rock. Be careful because everything is sandy and the desert floor is far below. Once you’re past, there are, I guess, dunes of crusted sand that will crumble if you’re not careful. There may be easier way to get to the lair by climbing down to the desert floor and just walking there. The lair is basically an amphitheater of goblins. It’s worth the exhaustion.

Gorgeous and the water is a welcome cool off. Be prepared for crowds though.

Great and easy walk. Recommend getting there early. Great views and people watching. People, please don't try to do this thing barefoot, I saw 4 people at the start trying to walk barefoot in the river... They probably didn't make it far. Buy some sandals or watershoes. Also, in general at zion don't bother with camping in the park, it stays so hot there in the summer months. Ask one of the park employees for dispersed camp zones. Stayed in one surrounding a lake and it was beautiful

Hard hike but worth every minute!

i love this hike. not for non hikers.

Amazing!

Really nice short and easy hike to cap off my time at Canyonlands. Did it towards the end of the day when the sun was setting, which really made the experience!

Absolutely amazing! Breathtaking and worth every step!

People are insanely unprepared for this hike. Energy levels are showing way to low and the main hike to the top hasn't even started. The chains are a huge help, but this isn't for the average "walker" or tourist in a pair of snickers. You must be prepared for this, hydrated and the proper footwear. Seriously people! no more near misses- this trail will close permanently

One of my favorite trails!

This is just so fun. Make sure you have good shoes (that you're ok getting wet) the water is cold pretty much no matter when you go and the rocks in combo with the cold water will kill your feet.

This s one of my favorite hikes of all time!! I've done it several times. Incredible!!!!!I would recommend going early in the morning ( at least in the summer) the sun can be pretty brutal.
