on The Watchman Trail

Great moderate hike. The loop trail at the top is especially fun - relatively flat with great views.

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.

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.

Very short hike with a great view relative to the effort of the hike. Limited parking and was fairly busy in middle of the day.

Hold on to the chain!

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 on 12/12. Great weather, snow and ice all along the trail out to Observation Point. Climbed Observation Point from the floor back in September and wanted to try this route. Glad we rented a Jeep and definitely needed a 4x4 to get to the trail head. Maybe saw three people total at Observation Pt. Great weather and amazing views as always.

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.

A series of switchbacks will guide you up to stunning panoramic views of the area! Expect to see many mule deer too.

We went Dec 12th, there wasn't a lot of people but middle and upper pool is closed. We saw two waterfalls and it was very muddy/slippery at the pools. We also saw deer and turkeys while on our way in! Definitely a great hike.

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.

Not an experienced hiker and this trail was a perfect challenge. Took us around an hour and 50mins to complete. We went Dec 12th and there was a little mud in higher elevation, a little slippery. Loop is shorter than we thought, you can skip this and still see watchman point overlook.

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 trail is a moderate to gradual climb up many levels of large outcropping rocks . After a rainy day the water is beautiful but it will be a bit muddy...

Perfect hike for after you've done Angel's Landing in the morning. Easy out and back trail with beautiful up canyon views. Do yourself a favor and take the dry creek bed "shortcut" on your way back to the Visitor's Center.

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

Extraordinary hike combining clean hikes, to more strenuous adventurers. Rock climbing, stair masters and high elevations — nice stop points to have lunch and take-in the spectacular views. One of my favorite ad it combines a little bit of everything into one full day hike. Wouldn’t suggest this hike as family friendly.

Fun and easy hike while connecting into hidden canyon. Made a nice day combining scrambling, hiking, scenic views and some off-trail adventures if combine these two hikes.

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.

This place is beautiful!! A must see.

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!

Pretty trail with decent elevation gain. I went on a rainy, misty day, so I didn’t quite get the views. But it was still a nice hike. Easy to follow and a good workout for a shorter hike.
