on Angels Landing Trail

19 hours ago

I’ve hiked across the entire country, and Angel’s landing is the absolute best hike I have ever been lucky enough to see.

23 hours ago

My wife and I enjoyed the hike up to Scout Landing Overlook, but we opted to continue along the West Rim trail and scramble up a summit rather than do the final 0.5 miles along the very narrow ridge to Angel's Landing (which we started but turned around after the first few chains). The view from the West Rim summit that we climbed was good, but not a good as that of Angel's Landing. The hike up was great, but Observation Point has a much better view for similar effort if you don't do the final 0.5 miles of Angel's Landing. Prior to Zion, we've only hiked on the East coast, and we have never seen a more dangerous section of trail than the last part of Angel's Landing - wouldn't recommend anyone do the last part, especially not kids.

Hello all,
I am planning to do that trail on next Saturday (the 22nd), weather looks good to do it. I will drive down from Santa Cruz on Friday and start the hike on Saturday. I still do not know if I want to do it in one day or two days and sleeping at Trail Camp. I am looking for people to join me. Open to suggestion. Thanks. PM @ theoche_83@hotmail.com

Be warned! This trail is EXTREMELY busy. If the weather is good expect LOTS of hikers. Even backed up traffic on parts of the trail, especially the last .5 mile. If you're not fond of heavily trafficked trails then I suggest you go really early to beat the crowd. Otherwise dont be a jerk trying to rush people on narrow parts of the trail. Everyone hikes at a different skill level and I hate seeing punks bullying others to hurry up. It's better to be safe and go slow then pushing your way through narrow parts of the trail.

Anyways! I hiked Angel's Landing 12/15/18. Weather was perfect. No snow, no ice on the trail. The trail was nicely maintained and paved almost all the way which made it that much easier to hike. Not gonna lie, the view was nice but not the greatest. That's just my opinion. Although definitely worth seeing once in a lifetime. If you're in Zion, spare 4-5 hours for Angel's Landing. Happy Hiking and be safe.

This hike was a little disappointing. Went on this trail trip with my Bakersfield College Forestry class and the forester that guided us did not know anything about anything. The trees are big and the trail was really great for people with wheelchairs but wildlife was awkwardly absent. I really did not like that wildlife was absent.

on The Subway Trail

Did this fun hike yesterday. I started at 6:30a with a headlight and finished around 2:30p, stopping often to set up camera on tripod for photos. I never saw another person. I wore neoprene socks over wools socks and feet were toasty. Neoprene pants kept me warm, with just polypropylene longsleeve and soft shell vest. Water knee-deep but there are very few spots that necessitated actually getting into water. I didn’t explore too far into the actual Subway slot as I was solo and the rocks were pretty darn slippery there and water was deeper. Going back again next week with a friend and will probably explore deeper into canyon. The 1/4 mile climb back up at the end is challenging but it’s fun to divert attention by looking for Moqui marbles! There are thousands of them. I will definitely go earlier in season next year to get the autumn colors in my pictures.

Spectacular and well worth it. the last pitch is chained but extremely busy at times with people trying to pass one another with only a few feet between the chains and the cliff.

One of my favorite short trails! Gorgeous mountain and lake views with abundant water sources (passing through seven lakes in 3.5 miles)! Nice campsites along Heart Lake, Chickenfoot Lake and Gem Lake. Fishing is good in most lakes. Perfect for older dogs. Very crowded and hard to find parking during summer. Permits are hard to come by, but walk-ins are very doable.

Hiked it yesterday 12/13. Absolutely awesome hike. Took my Dad and he enjoyed it as well. We started around 8am and were on the top by 9:30 or so. We enjoyed 45mins all to ourselves up there before we saw anyone. Perfect weather as well. Stoked to finally knock this one out since it was closed when I was here in September.

3 bc this is just for the river walk, but 5 for the narrows. Bottom-Up isn’t an option to review on this app. A previous trip I did the river walk bc my friend wasn’t a big hiker plus the conditions borderline that time of year. The paved HC accessible route just not for me and wasn’t at all a good impression of what Zion has to offer. The longer harder hikes are a game changer for those capable and willing to work a little. Anyways this was one of 7 back to backI hikes I did in a 6 day period between Bryce and Zion. I rented gear and at this time of year there’s not a crowd in the river (and Subway permit odds extremely high if you do a two day gear rental). A few times you have no option but to be waist deep so the full drysuit was reassuring even though many times I was too warm. Walking stick very helpful to test depth and determine direction of walking or at times when the extra sturdiness helpful bc of the current.

Fun playful trail and scenic destination. If I wasn’t hiking solo I would have tried going a little further into the slots once it became shoulder depth pools. Most of the river was at most knee depth but most of the time not actually walking in it but switching from one side thru to the other. Being the second week of December only 4-5 permits were requested which made you feel like the trail was all yours. Rented neoprene socks and dry suit for 2 days since I did Narrows the next day and rental is 50% second day. Didn’t need the top til the Narrows so I just tied the sleeves around my waist so I wouldn’t have to bother exchanging pants for suit for day 2

Paved path with lots of areas to walk down to the river. We went Dec 12th and it wasn't too crowded. Great way to see the beginning of the narrows and looking up all you see is canyon walls. There was also dirt paths by the river you could walk but you do have to come up to the paved path at some points. We also saw the dipper bird! Very beautiful and peaceful hike, easy and wheelchair assable.

This area has smaller parking than other trail heads. Short and steep but overall it took us around 30min in and out. We went Dec 13th and the trail was wet, not many people.

One of the hardest but great scenery on the top of mountain.

Absolutely breath taking!

We did it on October 19th 2018, there was snow on the trail so we had to use spikes. Since it was my first high altitude hike did the telescope peak in death valley day before to get acclimated. Trail is beautiful but you won't have lot of time to enjoy the views if u want to finish the hike on time. Started hike at 3:30am summited around 1 PM and finished it around 8:30pm. I carried 4 litter of water but hardly used 2 liters since I don't drink that much water on my hikes but would recommend carrying 4 liters. One of hiker from our team ran out of water ended up headind back since he couldn't find water on the trail.

Short walk to the top. I like the views leading up the top more than at the top. It was a little cloudy the day we went, but still worth it.

Great views! Unfortunatly for us, we have to avoid last sector by icy.
For me one of the best perspectives.

Most exhilarating hike ever!

Beautiful view from the top! Well worth the effort. My then 7 year old was a little nervous about the narrow top portion of the hike, but she toughed it out and wasn’t scared once we were at the wide and mostly flat top of the peak.

We hiked AL on Dec. 1st. 2018. We could not have asked for better weather. The condition of the tral was excellent. I would recommend checking the forecast, have good hiking shoes or boots and bring plenty of water and protein. Bars/bananas etc. The view from the top and also along the way is phenomenal. Cheers.

Once you have the pamphlet the trail is very easy to find. Recommend doing this hike for sunset, it was beautiful and not a very large crowd. Will need some flashlights for the route back as it can be easy to lose the trail.
