This is one of the ultimate. Keep your wits it gets crowded and time you meet to get into a cubby hole and let fellow hikers through on small paths views climbs all worth it.

Beautiful views of Zion, can be challenging. Remember to go slow and take your time; too many people rushing or trying to rush others resulted in one person having both knees skinned. Also, make sure you have proper footwear, many people wearing flip flops, didn't end well. Overall, take your time, enjoy the beauty it has to offer; well worth the time and energy.

Beautiful views of Zion Canyon! If your have a fear of heights, skip this one. But otherwise, just go slow and be deliberate - it may not be as scary as you’ve been told. Also: be on the first shuttle of the day to avoid crowds.

If you want to do this trail running you must be experienced, have good trail running shoes (I used my Hoka SpeedGoats), take water/bars/Gu, take your phone w\camera, and hopefully somebody can join you,
The trail is busy up to Angeles Landing.
Have fun

This trail is hard, but fun for anyone not afraid of heights. We really enjoyed the amazing views and great times!!! People who are not afraid of heights, (children or adults, children should be accompanied be an adult) should certainly try this trail for great fun, great views, and great memories.

Awesome hike. I am fearful of heights and found it was easy to go up and a lot harder to come down. I would definitely do this hike again Since I know what to expect now. The best thing is to be prepared and take your time. If people are rushing just let them pass. For the most part everyone was very supportive and nice.

Superb views along the way. Challenging elevation changes with heavy pack but so worth the hike since the views are spectacular along the way. Map distances are inaccurate when using GPS. Bring water!

Great hike! Start early and add angels landing! This, and observation point (and the narrows) would be the MUST hike in Zion. I did this in a day hike - decent gain and decent distance but the trail is for the length quite easy. You can't lose the trail, and it is well maintained. The gain is steady. And most importantly, the view is awesome, those gray mountains! Amazing. If you do it from lava point and need to choose telephone vs west rim -> do west rim! Much nicer view

I did this hike with my boyfriend a couple days ago. We started at Angels Landing and ended at campsite 8 in Telephone Canyon. It is approximately 17 miles round trip. There is a lot of ascending on the way there, it took us approximately 5 and half hours to get to our camp. Campsite 8 was a haul, but offered good protection from the wind and was close to the water source. The trip back was mostly down hill and we knocked it out in a little over 3 hours. Beautiful views from start to finish! The trip out was difficult with the extra weight on my back. Be sure to pack enough water.

Excellent hike with breathtaking views of the western mountains once you get to the top of the plateau, continuing on the west rim trail past the telephone canyon junction.

Went on January 14 and the portion of the west rim trail up on the plateau is quite muddy. It makes for a serious slog, but worth it ultimately. Just wear waterproof shoes.

Took us 7 hours to complete this hike. The distance without angels landing is 15 miles.

Started at Lava Point and went through Angels landing. Trail ran & hiked it, absolutely loved it. One of the prettiest hikes I've ever done & highly recommend it. Completed in a little under 5 hours with stops.

a great trail for people that want a more then an average trail. The elevation get intense while going up but the view is all worth it. warning for those that don't like heights.
