This is a strenuous trail in Zion National Park with steep drop-offs and very narrow sections. Not for anyone afraid of heights! The first 2-miles are paved and well-maintained. Most of the path is sunny, but Refrigerator Canyon offers shade and often a cool breeze. Ends at summit 1500 feet above Zion Canyon. Last 0.5 mi (0.8 km) follows a steep, narrow ridge; chains have been added in the most difficult areas. This is a good early morning hike. Make sure to allow time to be off the trail by dark if starting late in the day. The last half-mile is across a narrow sandstone ridge. Anchored support chains are attached along some sections of the sheer fin. Sheer cliffs at high elevations while hiking on a narrow fin. Avoid standing near the edge at all times! Do not hike the trail when it is wet, storming, or when high winds are present.

Amazing trail. I did this one with my cousin around 530pm. Probably a bad idea as we were heading up, people were going down. Sunset was due for 837pm and the last shuttle comes at 927pm. It took determination and a will of fire hotter than the sun to make it to the top. It was a glorious day seeing the sunset on angels landing. Even more glorious (and relieved) that we made it back down in time for the last bus. Unforgettable.

Did this hike in early May. Despite 7:45am start, the trail was mobbed -- with fairly happy, cooperative people. On the way up, on the way down, at the top, views to die for. Ummm, seriously, be careful on the chain/spine section. Walters Wiggles was fun. Icebox was cool. Saw a pair of resident condors soaring near their rocky nest. Amazing! Loved this park & hike.

Amazing and thrilling high-energy hike. Moderately strenuous for some, but only to make up for it with a breathtaking panoramic view of the valley and the way the Virgin River flows through it.

After long switchbacks to a brief flat stretch then short switchbacks the real adventure begins. The .5 mile stretch of Angels landing was an hour of extreme fear at the start overtaken by endorphins from exertion to pure joy at the accomplishment of it all.

Great hike, BUT depending on when you it could be pretty crowded.

Views are incredible. Completed this hike in extremely warm temperatures. In the future I would probably plan to hike this in a cooler season. Look forward to more from this park in the future.
