Best hike ever, there are stops on the way for taking in the view. Intense but oh so worth it.

Best hike ever!! Short and intense! It’s a lot more intimidating than it looks. Once you’re on the trail holding on to chains, you will realize it’s not as scary as it looks.

Absolutely incredible. Easily the best hike of my life. I wussed out on the final ascent and still loved it.

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 =)

Great hiking, with amazing views.

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.

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!

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

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.

Did this hike in October with fall temperatures. The rating of hard I believe depends on what time of year you go and what the temperature outside is. For us we started at around 9 am and the weather was perfect. On our way back around noon it was definitely hotter and more strenuous. Bring lots of water and snacks. Very well maintained hike! The rock requires you to make a somewhat questionable jump from one rock to another. Once you do it it’s not so bad. You have to lower yourself with your arms and get your footing on the potato chip rock. To get down I slid down the side of the rock. Overall great hike!

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.

This was a great hike.
Only advice is....be in good cardio shape for this hike, or it will kick your butt!

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.

Very pretty trail for a ride. At the top of the hill overlooking the lake, there is a fork that leads to the south Lake Trail in the left. On the right, the map says it loops back to rejoin the original trail. However, the fork isn't well marked and I couldn't find the loop-back trail on the right. I didn't want to risk it with my bike so I just ended up retracing my original route.

Good morning hike. Incline route all the way to the top. Not crowded. Overall good for beginners with great views from the top.

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

first hike of our season. It's a burner. I'm way out of shape and this trail prove it. It's great in the am hours.

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