Awesome short hike in Zion. View of Zion Canyon was nice. Took less than 30 minutes to reach the overlook. Not ADA accessible though. Limited parking. There are overflow parking down the road. You can also park alongside the Hwy that permits.

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.

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.

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.

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.

We went Dec 11 and drove the scenic drive on the 13th. Not super crowded but they do have some road work by the zion lodge. Bonus tip: another great drive is to enter the park's tunnel through the east entrance of the park!

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

Absolutely breath taking!

Great easy hike. We ended up making it in 1 hour and 40 Mins out and back. Definitely recommend for a quick beautiful walk by the river

This hike was everything everybody said it would be, and more. Perfect weather and trail conditions.

Beautiful sights, challenging hike and uplifting experience!

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.

This hike is awesome - very easy to follow and very little elevation gain with amazing views. However it was really crowded just before sunset on a cold December day, so I bet it’s crazy on a nice summer day. The views are amazing though!

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.

Great slot canyon off the beaten path. No crowd and you may see no one. We went all the way to the end climbing all the ropes and obstacles. Very fun and challenging for me. Getting back down the rope sections was the toughest. I highly recommend doing this for a great adventure and to experience a beautiful and uncrowded canyon.

beautiful hike, way too crowded though. Very easy, and paved. Watch out for the squirrels. They make it impossible to stop for a snack :-)

I’m only rating this 5 stars because the view was beautiful and this trail kicked my butt! If you’re an experienced hiker and want a challenge and/or something to prepare for a Rim to Rim hike, this is the one for you! It was LONG but Ribbon Falls was absolutely magical :)

Decent number of bathrooms and water in the summer too!

Awesome experience!!! I loved everything about this hike!!

Nice short walk along the river. Accessible for wheelchairs as fully pathed. Is very heavily trafficked. If want to go far into the narrows you can hire waterproof boot and trousers from the visitor centre for the next day.

Amazing rewarding hike to angels landing, with the 360 views at the top making the uphill struggle worth it. Is strenuous with Steep incline to the top with lots of switchbacks and with the final kilometre having chains to help up to the top of angels landing along a steep ridge. Definitely not for those scared of heights. Took us about 2 hours to get to the top but took plenty of rest stops along the way and about an 1.5 down. To get to trailhead there is shuttle bus service as the road is for shuttle bus only but buses come every few minutes and run until after sunset. The trail was very busy even in mid November.

Nice short trail with great overlook of Zion. Was very busy trail even in mid November. Also limited parking but there is some alongside the road, but this was also nearly full up.

Really beautiful hike. Moderate in terms of the physical effort. Hard if you’re scared of heights.

Great hike. Rent the gear, it is worth it. The farther you go up the less people you encounter. We went as far as you can go without a permit which is Big Spring. Start earlier rather than later to enjoy more time exploring as it gets dark early in the narrow canyon.

Peaceful hike at the end of the day. We did it in the evening and were given quite the show by Zion. The sun setting on the Watchman Mt was beautiful.

Perfect hike for kids and older parents. crowded though so go earlier in day rather than later.

Fun hike on Thanksgiving.

Easy, paved walk in Zion National Park that goes along the river. Pretty views. There are lots of better trails in Zion, but this is the only one that allows dogs, so it’s the best trail for us dog lovers!
