Amazing hike but if want to avoid the urbanites get an early start or take a bike on a late shuttle.

Lives up to the hype. Yes the crowds can be annoying but doesn’t matter when you’re treated to that type of trail. In regards to the heights, I have a pretty bad fear of heights and still managed to do this trail. If you stay focused and hold onto the railings, you’ll be fine. Worth it, absolutely worth it.

Great hike, start early in the morning so you avoid the mid day rush. If your afraid of sharp drop offs and heights you may want to pass. The view is amazing at the top. Wear proper shoes

Great hike. A lot easier that I thought. Highly recommend to go

We left around 7 AM to beat the sun, heat and rush. It was well worth it as on our way bake we passed two to three times the people we saw on the way up. Use extreme patience, caution and respect as you should do on all trails. Of course, the views are incredible. Make sure to prepare for those switchbacks on the way up =)

It was raining and the water was about 38 degrees, but it was worth every moment of it. Make sure to have water shoes and hiking pole because the current can get a little rough when it rains. Also, pack lunch and extra clothes in a water bag.

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.

An easy, paved trail that's relatively steep in places, but the hike is worth 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.

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.

Short but very scenic hike. Lots of different vegetation, rock and amazing views of the Watchmen once you get to the loop trail. Best if you are at the viewing spot just before sunset so you can watch the mountain glow and change colors as the sun sets upon it.

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.
