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.

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.

Great hike and nice view. Generally a constant incline but changing trail scenery/conditions. Lots of places to sunbathe, picnic, etc at the point. Didn’t get on the trail until 1245 because of car problems but actually made it up and back in under 4 hours because I didn’t take a break until the top bc of 530 sunset and allegedly 6 hrs round trip. Glad I didn’t push it to the next day and let vehicle issues waste my whole day.

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

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

Absolutely breath taking!

Great hike. Strenuous, but worth the effort. Did it in early December and temps were perfect. A little muddy/snowy at the top, but nothing a good pair of hiking boots can’t handle. Went through about 1.5L of water, completed in about 4hr 20min (stopped at the top for 20-30 min).

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...

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

Makes a nice day for an easy hike, incorporating scrambling and some adventure if combine weeping rock.

Beautiful sights, challenging hike and uplifting experience!

Great hike. We started at 7 am and finished by 2 pm. No wild life . Saw 2 birds and 1 fish

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

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!

This hike is fantastic. Pretty strenuous, but the payoff is amazing. The views cannot be beat. There are some steep dropoffs, but the trail is wide enough and it’s nice to have the mountain on one side of you. Every part of this hike is jaw-dropping. Echo Canyon is so cool and the views from the top are breathtaking. Did this in early December and the cool air was very welcome! There was snow but only at the very top on the last flat stretch. A must do hike!

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.

A beautiful hike with otherworldly views of Zion. Every turn looked completely different and stunning in its own way. We stayed in campsite 4 the week of Thanksgiving. It got pretty chilly at night but during the day the weather was perfect.

Great hike over looking the Zion canyon and angels landing. I would have to say this was my favorite hike compared to angels landing b fuse you are at a high elevation see everything

October 2018- this hike is definitely a must do! We started at about 745 AM. Every turn had stunning views. We took so many pictures. The overlook was my favorite in the region. We saw chipmunks at the top. It took us 4 hours and 15 minutes. Don’t miss out on this hike!

I did this trail 2 days ago without really knowing what I was getting myself into. My two friends had a permit they got months ago and I added onto it the day before which was great but I didn’t have the opportunity to do much research. The other reviewers on here are really down playing the difficulty level of this trail. With numbers like 7 miles and 1200’ of elevation change I thought this would be a breeze but I was happily surprised by the challenging terrain. After the 400’ incline getting down the canyon you are in and out of walking in the river, along with constantly climbing over boulders the entire way up. The way back kept the fun going until you get back to the wall you have to climb up to get out of the canyon. This hike was a challenge that I enjoyed every minute of! Definitely now one of my all time favorite hikes. I was very happy I rented dry pants and neoprene socks for this trail although at the beginning I questioned if that decision was really necessary. I am usually a fast hiker but this trail took me a full 8 hours with very few breaks!

The whole way up to the ”Observation Point“ hast great views and interesting sceneries. The big reward for the ascent is the perfect view up and down the main canyon of Zion NP.

Amazing walk with great views over Zion canyon. Definitely worth the many switchback and long uphill climb. The trail is really easy to follow. It took us 2 hours to get to the top and just over an hour to great down. Would advise to head out early to beat the crowds, also the shuttle bus is only way to get to trailhead and back but they come every few minutes with first and last bus times varying depending on the time of year. Toilets are at the trailhead.

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.
