Totally worth the hike. The view is AMAZING! Hard hike but totally worth it!

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 think this was my best hike at Zion. The view form Observation Point was stunning. I expected Observation Point to be barren and wind-blown, but the summit was calm and had vegetation. You could also see Angel's Landing from the summit. The trail was fairly difficult with many switchbacks but was well worth it. I found it harder than Angel's Landing.

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.

Short but was able to get some beautiful shots

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.

My wife and I highly recommend this trek! Some of the best views in the park. The uphill switchbacks were pretty tough, but well worth it!

Strenuous like the description says but well worth it! We hiked it at 9am on October 19 and started out in jackets and hats but down to t-shirts at the top. Gorgeous trail that has switchbacks and has a small part thru an impressive canyon!

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!!!

Nice short hike in Zion National Park. My GPS read 3.7 after the round trip. It was fairly busy, but not like some of the other trails in Zion. I was a little surprised by the traffic level being that it is so close to the visitor center. Good views from the top, and we did the loop around the mesa.

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.

This is a difficult, but beautiful trail. Every switchback provides a new perspective. The view from the top isn't the only great view. Echo Canyon is a bonus.

Short, relatively easy hike but great views along the way. Left the visitor center at 5pm and was back by 6:45. Also saw 2 big horn sheep at the top near the scenic loop!

Amazing hike but if want to avoid the urbanites get an early start or take a bike on a late shuttle.

We hike a lot, and my husband and I said this was one of the best hikes we’ve ever done. Go early to beat the crowds and be prepared to get a leg workout. If you’re in decent shape and going to Zion, I would consider this a “can’t miss”

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 =)

It was raining and the water was about 38 degrees, but it was worth every moment of it. Make sure to have water shoes and hiking pole because the current can get a little rough when it rains. Also, pack lunch and extra clothes in a water bag.
