Mostly flat and fairly muddy trail leads to a *spectacular* view

We did this trail on our last day here. Wasn't sure on distance if it was 7.5 round trip or out. Happy it was 7.5. Beautiful although we still aren't sure if we saw angels landing from our previous hike.

We did this trail on our last day here. Wasn't sure on distance if it was 7.5 round trip or out. Happy it was round trip as we only had so much time. Beautiful views all around. We aren't sure if we saw angels landing or not. Even though our hike mate had done entire route a few days before, its hard to tell from above and didn't see people, but I guess it was windy earlier in the day.

Road to trailhead was great until last 100ft. There are spots to park before it gets bad. Trail is well maintained and goes through beautiful rolling forests and clearings, and the view at the end will blow you away. Great hike

View is nice from the top and the hike there is pretty, although I don’t know that I’d do this one again. Hiking poles were nice for the hike back, which is more uphill.

The hike itself is nice, with a couple of sneak peaks of great views, but the view at the end is fantastic. This should be definite if you want to see Zion from above.

HikingGreat!

The hike up to Cable Mountain is pretty average, but the views at the top are UNREAL!!! You get to see all of Zion Canyon and it’s breathtaking. We planned to do Angels Landing and it’s a shame that it’s currently closed but this trail gave you a full shot of the whole Angels Landing hike which was still cool to see. The history of this hike is also super cool. It saved the Mt. Zion settlers SO much time sending timber from the cables at the top of this hike rather than trekking it all the way down which was the way of the past. It’s a sheer cliff drop off at the top. Your pics will be great! Also, this hike was hard in the beginning with the uphills but sooo easy coming down. I loved that. We started early maybe 7-8AM to catch the high heat in the latter part of the day. AND this trail was EMPTY! We saw 1 other family at the very end of the hike. Basically had the trail to ourselves which was awesome especially in this day and age.

Unbelievable hike. Started in the morning and had perfect weather. Good balance of shade and sun with the best view of Zion Valley.

Totally empty trail on a Monday at 10 am. Not a car parked anywhere so I was unsure where to park. Ended up on a clearing on the left about .3 mi before the trailhead on Pine St. My car couldn't have cleared the rocks to get into the actual trailhead parking lot (which is tiny anyway). Hike itself on the east end of a Moderate rating. Well marked trail with nothing steep or technical. A few nice view spots along the way and massive payoff at the end. More shade than expected from other reviews but it's definitely hot and dry.

Trail was in great condition. The end gives you a fantastic view overlooking the canyon. Trail is exposed to sun most of the way. Go early or late to avoid the heat.

Great moderate hike with gradual inclines and declines. Throughout there are shade opportunities. The scenery is nice but not fabulous for this area but the ending finale is spectacular!

Hike is definitely worth it. The entire trail is long and boring until you get out to cable mountain. It is pretty flat. Only a few hills. The view is spectacular.

I’m on a mission to see Angels Landing at every possible angle from above. I’ve stood on it. I’ve seen it from the North ya Observation Point. I’ve seen it from The south on DeerTrap mountain. Cable mountain is a great view from the east. I’ve done this as a stand-alone joke and also in combination with Deertrap Mountain. Worth the trip! If I had to choose between Cable and Deertrap...id choose the latter. Both are awesome though. Best to go when it hasn’t rained recently

Highly recommend this trail. Scenic views along the way with a breathtaking view into Zion Canyon. Steady minimal elevation change. Not terribly strenuous. Steep drop off without safety guards at the end of the trail. Not overly crowded.
