Gorgeous hike! The switchbacks are killer, but paved. Then after that its a pretty skinny trail with sheer cliffs, sometimes on both sides. Its an adrenaline rush, and the views at the top are amazing! I dont know if I could stomach it with snow or even rain though. Always be aware of your footing and bring plenty of water.

Amazing trail! One of the best in the state of Utah, and that's saying something.

Breathtaking hike! Highly recommend

Loved this hike. View back down Zion is awesome. Fun to look down on Angels Landing. If you want a thrill, take a peek just off the trail over the drop off to the right, before you get to the end, but be careful! Otherwise, nothing hairy to deal with.

Need to get there early to beat the crowds at parking lot.

The best hike of my life, exhausting like hell.
hike has two parts, one which is a long walk of 3.5 miles steep slope with a well built trail.

after that comes the part were you have to climb a strenuous mountain all the way till top.

the hike is a experience in itself. take lots of water and good food to keep you going.

Oitstanding view at the end. A must do if you visit Zion.

So much fun hiking up and down this trail. Beatufu view on the top!

Nice easy paved trail along the river. This leads to the start of the Narrows trail.

Simply amazing. Did this in August of last year. Get on the first bus that will take you to the trailhead. That way you beat the crowds AND the afternoon heat. We finished in about 6 hours - that included photo stops along the way.

Amazing views and a good workout.

If I didnt want a longer hike this ones good. I did it when I finished hidden canyon late afternoon. The observation deck was popular earlier but near the end of the day not many people were there.

Once you get inside the canyon its cooler and narrow. Really get an up close feeling of the sheerness of the vertical rock walls. We got a frog symphony at a small pool. good reward for the uphill climb. There were just a few chains on the trail. Small arch on the right side of the canyon as you continue in.

fun! rent the canyoneering shoes and neoprene booties worth it. the side canyon was cool too.

Deal with slightly steep grade incline switchbacks and navigate some steep drop off points and you earn arguably the best view in the park.

One of my all time favorites! The climb up was absolutely an epic experience and the views are phenomenal!! Stay aware of your own personal safety and be courteous to others along the way. Pace yourself and have fun! Gorgeous hike.

Easy hike to the official trail viewpoint. If you add on East peak (unofficial trail) it is a bit harder. No one on the trail after that. The views were expansive and 360 deg from the East peak. That wilderness feeling. On the way back follow your topo map. Saw a rattlesnake and deer tick.

Well done trail. Walters wiggles switchbacks are an engineering marvel. Many chains on the final ascent by the sheer dropoffs. Non stop gorgeous views of Zion canyon. Plenty of room at the top viewing area. You will never be alone.

Anywhere else but Zion this would be amazing. If you have limited time you might skip this one. The final loop trail is fun and a good area for a lunch break.

short but great view

Truly epic and unique hike!

We did this on a Tuesday in mid May - took the first Zion shuttle at 6am from the Visitors Center to the #6 Grotto stop. Probably about 20 other hikers heading up the trail at that time. It was a bit chilly in the morning (about 50 degrees), sun hadn't peaked over the mountains yet and most of the hike was in the shade, so a jacket and layers is a must! The first half of the hike is paved but pretty strenuous because you're walking steeply up the side of the mountain. A good 45 minutes of uphill effort. Then you reach the chains which is the coolest part! Luckily, we were the first ones up so there was no one coming back down yet, so that made the chain hike much easier and more enjoyable!! As the day goes on, you have people coming both up and down the narrow chains section - which causes some traffic jams. We bumped into a few people on our hike down the chains, so just step aside as best as possible and be patient (could add an extra 20 min or so to your hike).

The view from the top is worth it! Great spot for a light breakfast. Only a handful of other hikers.

Now, if you're a photographer, there is a con for getting up early and having an easier hike - the valley is still partially in shadow. You'll either have to brave the crowds later in the day for better lighting or simply bring extra food/water and just hang at the peak for a few hours until the sun is right. We stayed for about 45 minutes, snapped a few long exposures and timelapses before heading back down.

Besides a bit of congestion at the chains, the hike down was super easy. I can imagine a weekend during high season, this hike would be super packed and frustrating! But mid week, early in the morning - it was perfect!!!! Took us under 3.5 hours.

Great hike! I have done this hike 3 times, twice in the summer and once in the winter with snow. This trail is one of the most popular, so go early or later in the afternoon to avoid the mid-day heat. Hiking up the chains towards the end is always fun. The views are worth the climb!

Enjoyed more than angels landing. Strenuous from the get go. Started around 730 and finished by 1030...I think with about 30 break at observation point. the views throughout were fantastic. so many colors. definitely got busy on the way down...even saw a guy not wearing shoes. if you wanna start early get in line by 630 am for shuttle.

Did this last Tuesday. If you want to see the amazing views with limited waits, take the first shuttle. that means get in line before 630 at the visitors center.even for a short hike, wear proper shoes and bring water! I was surprised the amount of people unprepared. the last .5 mile up wasn't as scary as thought. amazing views. Walters Wiggles was a blast going up! do remember people going up have the right of way....be patient going down.

Beautiful views and fun to hike. Plenty of friendly people along the trail.

Great hike with the biggest challenge as the day goes on is the CROWDS! (I got to the visitors centre at 6:30am and there was already a long queue for the first shuttle)
Passing is difficult at certain points as I discovered coming back down and the crowds coming up increased, so patience is required. Not really technically difficult, as long as you're ok with heights just take your time and use common sense. And the overly friendly chipmunks at the top almost as rewarding as the views!

Worth it. Such a fun trail. Didn't want it to end.

Loved it!! Every step of it!!

worth every step! amazing vew. strt as early as possible though to avoid the crowds!

I didn’t do a single bit of research on this hike and walked up to it because it was recommended. WOW. One of the more challenging hike I’ve ever been on but easily the most rewarding. It truly is Angel’s Landing.

We started this hike at 8am, the shade really helps to make this hike up easier. The second set of switchbacks were very exposed, on the way back down we saw a lot of people suffering in the heat on the way up. It's a long steady hike but definitely worth waking up early to enjoy it without the harsh sun. The view at the top is wonderful aswell you can see the road winding through the canyon down below. Overall, it took us about 3.5hrs round trip, discounting our time spent at the view.
