Doable in a single day - it's practical to go back because of transport. I did it in 10.5 hours. It's smart to leave before sunrise. Think about bringing water, not every water source was open when I went.

Anyway, it's a great hike. Going down the canyon is THE thing to do over there. Hiking on the rim isn't the same - you'll get the full experience of the size of the canyon!

Also, if you have to choose south rim vs north rim...I'd vote for south rim because it's closer to the colorado river. You also have more decent choices (hermit, britgth angel, tanner)

Nice trail. I would rate the hike Easy/Moderate. Very narrow at one point. Lots of great views.

Angel's Landing is a great hike, but start out early to avoid the large crowds. The trail can get backed up with people which can lead to gridlock. I went as far as the chains, but the gusty winds stopped me from going to the spine. This trail seemed easier than Observation Point which I had done a few days earlier.

Going up/down the chains was fun — but not for those with a fear of heights. Did it later in the day so there was less waiting on the way down.

The first mile of the hike is on an easy paved sidewalk. Obviously the hike gets harder once you are wading through shin deep water which sometimes reaches waist deep or more depending on how far you go. In the fall for sure, I recommend renting shoes, socks, pants, and a hiking pole from an outfitter in Springdale as the water is cold (9below 50 degrees) and there is little sun. Anyone bothering to wade through the river should make it at least to wall street (3-4 miles in and after passing the side canyon). It is the best portion of the canyon. It is not signed, so get a pamphlet from the outfitter. Access is via Zion's 40 minute shuttle bus ride. Parking is limited at the visitor center. Go early to avoid crowds and to be able to see where you are walking in the river. It is walkable without the gear, but I prefer to be comfortable and soggy shoes that rub blisters and cold water isn't terribly appealing to me to stay in for a long period of time, so for me the gear was worth every penny.

Perfect weather today. Having some closed toed shoes is all you need if you don’t mind them getting wet. It took us about four hours round trip to go there and back. Stunning views and such a change up for a hike. 10/10

Great little walk with rewarding views!

Fun easy hike with great views! A must do if you’re coming past the tunnel on the north side

This hike is amazing! You get awesome views, a great workout, and some adrenaline with the drop offs :). We just hiked it yesterday. It was a Saturday and UEA weekend in Utah so I knew it would be busy. We got there by 6:50 to catch the first shuttle. We actually didn’t make the first shuttle but waited 10 minutes and caught the second. The hike took us 2.5 hours but we kept a good pace. Going up was great and not many people. Coming back down, the people started coming and we were slowed a bit. The weather in the fall is perfect. We started a little chilly but were just right with a light jacket the rest of the way. By the time we got back to our cars around 11, the line for a shuttle was probably a two hour wait so get there early if you want to avoid the crowds.

I just did this one on 10/16. So glad the ranger recommended to go to one of the outfitters in town. We rented the dry pants, boots, a dry sack for out bags, and a pole, very worth it. The water was freezing and it can be very slippery and easy to roll an ankle if you don't have the proper footwear, the stick really helped to catch my balance a few times. The pant helped keep my pants underneath completely dry and warm too. The water was pretty much ankle to waist deep, I'm 5'8". there are also dry areas that you can walk in too to take a break from the water. We made it all the way up to the end of Wall Street, Wish I new the mileage to each point.

Amazing trail! it's mostly paves until you get to the overlook. Be prepared for a lot of switchbacks. Another trail that you should get there early to beat the crowds, especially if you do the part with the chains. I'm afraid of heights and I was able to do the chains part, just go slow and focus on your steps, it's totally worth it to go to the end. My GPS said the trail is longer than 4.1 miles but who knows.

Amazing views and a really fun hike. There was a grid lock on the end part at angels landing where people couldn’t move for twenty minutes!

I guess my one mistake was I didn’t rent any equipment...the water was cold probably in the lower 50s. I couldn’t wait to get out of the water. The rocks have lots of algae on them making them slippery poles would have been helpful. The view was wonderful however.

Breathtakingly beautiful! Fairly intense. The peak is not for those afraid of heights. However, Hiking to the first saddle is a must do even for the faint and fearful hearted.

Definitely a tough trail, but worth the effort. Took us just under 4 hours.

The views are spectacular, but the crowds are not. On the final ascent, be prepared to wait in a queue line up a precipitous ridge. Impatient people will climb around you and put you at risk.

Did this one today. Not sure how far we went, all I can say is that we went all the way to where we turned around! It was probably about 4 miles in if I had to guess, we stopped after a slip and fall injured the shoulder of someone in our group.

If I ever do this hike again, I wouldn't waste the money on any of the special gear. All you really need is some sturdy boots with ankle support and a walking stick - there were quite a few left at the start of the hike after the river walk before the river entry. The water temp was around 54 degrees here on October 20th, and the high daytime temp was 67 degrees with no chance of rain. River flow seemed rather low and the deepest we got was waist deep water. You will be walking in the river for the majority of this hike, it is inevitable. Plus, there is no where to go to the bathroom, so go before you go and limit your intake.

It was crowded and sort of busy, but the great thing about this hike was that everyone was doing their own thing, and it didn't really seem as busy as it was.

Beautiful area with great scenery. We got to the rope on the wall and didn't continue on. I didn't have any issue getting up the wall, but I think it would be hard for kids to do... if they were successful getting up it, it is quite different coming back down. It was too bad there was a super annoying group at the end being extremely noisy, because it would have been great to be able to spend some time there just taking everything in.

Easy hike however, very short 1.5 out and back of you stop at the rope on the wall.

Loved this hike. Beautiful views along the way and especially at the end. It was cold in the morning but hats and coats made it perfect!!!

Started around noon on a Wednesday at 60 degrees. I didn’t think it was crazy crowded. Awesome hike! We hiked about 8 Miles total. Took us four hours. The water was cold but not super uncomfortable. I’m a cheapskate so we did not rent special pants or or the boots and we were fine. I did grab a walking stick that someone left behind, I was glad to have that to gage water depth. We’re about 5’ 9” and never had to go much over knee deep in water. Not sure what the water level was though. Wish I had a waterproof phone case. I saw some people that had them hanging around their neck. Would have been easier to take pictures. I’ll definitely do this hike again.

Awesome hike with spectacular views!

Just hiked Angels Landing last week and it’s everything that everyone says about it and then some!! Be ready for nothing but adventure!!

Great hike!

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.

Did this trail Sept 10th, most amazing hike ever! Rented the boots and socks from Zion Outfitters the night before (they allow this after 3:00 PM) so I could start the next morning at sunrise. I caught the 1st shuttle out of visitor center, it was a full bus. When the shuttle reached the starting point of Temple of Sinawava I gave everyone a 10 minute start knowing that the next shuttle wouldn't arrive for another 15-20 minutes , this put a nice buffer between me and the crowds, for awhile. Definitely spend a few bucks on a dry sack, I lost my footing and went in at about 8.5 mile mark but my camera was dry. You can not visit Zion with out doing this one.

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
