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!

Tough trail if you’re not in shape — uphill the entire first half, and pretty steep. Also, the trail was already coated in ice, which made the going slow toward the top (especially on the way down). Poles or chains recommended. But the view at the top was gorgeous, the lake was so serene — and we had two wild moose sightings (from a safe distance)! Highly recommend, just be prepared.

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.

Great mid-range hike. Passing through Church Falls is beautiful, and the views of Millcreek Canyon from the top are amazing. Legs got a little tired towards the top, though.

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!!!

Consistent climbing up, amazing views along the trail!!

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!

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

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

Hardest hike of the summer! But I had the place to myself and the views were worth it! Lots of different terrain and scenery!

Very much a tough trail if you are not in shape. The trail is very rocky and hilly but well traveled. Take plenty of water and take plenty of breaks to keep from getting winded.

It was steep but the view was pretty cool once you get there. We backpacked so we hiked at night and woke up to a beautiful fall view. Did it about 1.5 weeks ago

Really cool views. Pretty steep in some spots, but not too bad. Straight forward hike.

Really good view, really steep. Good warm up for upper bells reservoir in my opinion. West slabs scramble is a lot more adventurous, but couldn’t find anywhere to rate.

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.

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.

Suuuper steep but 100% worth the view. One of my favorite hikes of all time.

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.

I wish I had more time at the top. Absolutely peaceful lake and views. Hike was very enjoyable. I want to go back in the fall!

Great time of year to go. Wild temp change from sweating hot to super cold towards summit. Definitely exhausted at the end but totally worth it. Didn’t actually need that much water. 1 liter this time of year was good for me. Friend took the wrong path near top so be sure to stick to the trail. You reached the top when you find the black mailbox.

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

1 hr up. 30 down push hard for a great leg day. great fall views
