We enjoyed fabulous views with sightings of several families of big Horn Sheep! lots of young ones that made me a little nervous for their safety on the step cliffs, but I'm sure they know what they're doing!
At the end of the trail you are rewarded with a beautiful and fantastical photo opportunity!

I just got back from doing this hike. It was absolutely unbelievable!!! Stunning breathtaking views. I highly recommend water socks and shoes with ankle support. The water was refreshing and we hiked about 6-8 miles round trip. A must for everyone.

Hiked a week ago. Started hiking pretty late, around 11 am at Riverside walk. Very crowded. BUT, as we were returning, we were the last who made it to waterfall. It was very good, as on the way back there were no people at all and because of that water was very clean, not muddy at all. The level of water rose compared to the morning. We were hardly able to make it to the last but, well worth it.

Trail was incredible; amazing views and easy to navigate. Rate moderate to hard (mainly because I am grossly out of shape). Finished in 3.5 hours. Trail was pretty populated, but there was plenty of solitude as well.

Balade facile et amusante pour les enfants (passages un peu techniques) pour bien finir la journée en sortant de Zion national Park par l'est. Arrêtez vous juste après le tunnel. Si le parking est plein, on trouve des places un peu plus haut le long de la route. Très beau point de vue sur la vallée une gros arrivé au bout du trail. Comptez une heure A/R.

Scenic. We hiked in the afternoon which was ideal as it was shaded. Majestic views all around! We hiked from the 6th tram stop back down to the 5th. Enjoyable.

Did this one in August 2015. Brutally hot weather, but otherwise great hiking conditions.

The hike up to "base camp" was spectacular - beautifully maintained trails, pleasant elevation gain, and uninterrupted views of the canyon. I would recommend that first leg of the hike to most anybody.

The actual Angel's Landing climb is a completely different beast. Between the heat, the treacherous drop-offs, and the altitude, it was an intense hour or so. The view from the point, though, is fantastic - panoramic views of the canyon and its technicolored rock walls complimented by a dozen or so California Condors circling overhead.

A very memorable experience, and a worthy member of the hiker's hall of fame.

Is this open yet? I am surprised to see comments from people even this week

Second time in the Narrows confirms my belief that this is an experience to not miss. I used 2 adjustable walking poles and which seemed to make me balance and move more safely than those with one or none. They say water shoes are not recommended. I found my water shoes to be just fine. Unless you have bad ankles I don’t think you need ankle support as long as you are cautious about foot placement. Go early (before 7:30) to avoid the crowds, and don’t miss this hike!!

Mentally tough but rewarding hike.

Hard hike but worth every minute!

i love this hike. not for non hikers.

People are insanely unprepared for this hike. Energy levels are showing way to low and the main hike to the top hasn't even started. The chains are a huge help, but this isn't for the average "walker" or tourist in a pair of snickers. You must be prepared for this, hydrated and the proper footwear. Seriously people! no more near misses- this trail will close permanently

This s one of my favorite hikes of all time!! I've done it several times. Incredible!!!!!I would recommend going early in the morning ( at least in the summer) the sun can be pretty brutal.

our first time to zion and our first hike. it was short and fairly easy for adults. we have a 7 and 10 year old and there were a few ledges that made my heart pound. otherwise there was no complaining. the view at the end was beautiful. parking was tough, we arrived at 10am.

Absolutely worth it. The crowd gets less and less the further you go through the canyon. We took the shuttle at stop 3 to avoid the awful line at the visitors center. We all wore water shoes we previously got for rafting. Made it all the way to the fork and tried climbing up those water falls, but eventually grew tired; we were not prepared to hike 10+ miles.

We started at the visitors center at 7:30 am. It was so busy we had to wait for a bus. The entire shuttle was heading to the narrows so be prepared for traffic. We hiked all the way to the spring which was pretty, however not sure it was completely worth hiking all the way out there. Tons of people paid $25 for waterproof shoes however my sneakers worked just fine. It is worth hiking in about 2-3 miles early in the morning when the shade it still covering the water. It took us 2.5 hrs to get to the spring and about 2 hours to return. On our way back, it was like an amusement park trying to navigate through all the crowds. Go early!

It's funny to hike with chains in the hand, but don't too worry about the danger. Just be careful. Actually the most difficult part is before reaching the cliff, as it's very steep. When you hike with chains, you always need to stop to wait for others in the opposite direction, so will not be very tired.

It's so excited to hike in a river! I hiked for two hours. It's will be one of the most unforgettable experience in my life.

A lovely hike if you're looking for a trail that takes you by (and in) water. It'll cool you off a little if you're a summer hiker.

Amazing amazing place... not to be missed
Easy enough hike, trail is well wide with not too much traffic

Easy mile, only took 12 minutes including a stop after the initial stair climb. Great view at the end.

Great views but beware that this hike can be challenging because of narrow hiking paths which are dangerously close to cliffs. For anyone wary of their balance or does not like to hike close to severe drop offs, don’t go on this hike

Great hike. I didn’t do the chains but my girlfriend did and loved it. Even the hike up to the plateau at the top is worth it though. Go early to avoid crowds.

One of the best, most iconic hikes in the country. Hope it opens up again soon.

Terrific views of the canyon! Relatively easy hike, but as mentioned you’ll want good sturdy shoes as there are a couple of dicey spots. Definitely recommend.

Challenging but fun hike. Go early to beat the heat. View at the top is amazing.

Go as early in the morning as possible to avoid the heat in midsummer. Watching the morning light fill the canyon is a treat.

I wish people would not describe this trail as easy. It certainly is not long, but if you are not confident when the trail narrows to about 14 inches across then don’t bother. It is very frustrating to climb most of the way only to reach a point where a slight misstep could send you plunging to the bottom of the canyon. I was terrified but knew my limits. I turned back.
