Hiked this 5/25/20. Almost the entire hike is as steep as stairs or worse. A little stretch at the top is more mild. It took me 35 minutes for the ascent, same for descent. My legs were definitely feeling some burn on the way up AND down. Great view from the top as others have noted. If you’re hiking for the view an evening trip would show off Zion’s colors better. Start at the gate! Going around the fence means having to climb with your hands in snake country. Lots of steep, slippery spots. Lots of shortcuts that make the best, easiest route hard to see at times whether climbing or descending. NOT for small children. If I lived close to this I would hike it often for the intensity and distance. A great workout.

Solid workout, 3345 ft gain in 2.2 mi, couldn’t reach the summit since there was still 3-4 ft of snow after this point as the trail descended into the valley. I was hoping to knock this peak off for Memorial Day but looks like Aug/Sept will be the best time to bag this one.

Good, fairly easy hike for those looking for the experience of hiking a cinder cone. There are several steep spots where slow and steady reaches the top. The view is beautiful.

Easy intro hike.. short hike but nice view at top. Did not see ruins at the top.

Very easy, not super scenic, but if you can’t park at Red Reef it’s right next door and something to do.

Easy hike with great views. Fine for children. When you come to the fork of three trails take the one on your left. The one going straight will lead your to barb wired fence and we had to go back and take a different path to get to the top. I took a picture to show. The views at the top are amazing with many different types of rock formations and canyons.

Did this late afternoon/evening on 5/23. Was looking for something short and steep and this didn't disappoint. The first two thirds of the way up are killer but then you get a flat stretch and the end isn't that bad. The descent is tough in parts, I only slipped and fell once haha. Great views at the top. When a hike is super steep, I prefer slickrock or rocks to climb on, as loose dirt and pebbles make the steepness tough sometimes

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.

Trail is steep, so wear hiking shoes and bring poles. The views are well worth the hike.

Rocky. Really, really rocky.

We went on this trail after work, (6:00pm). It was still warm and the trail doesn’t offer shade. The far views of Zions are stunning. We were so excited that we saw a desert tortoise! We have hiked in Southern Utah for years and never seen one. It was amazing!

If your looking to hike straight up for 1000 ft then this trail is for you. It is slow going back down because of all the loose dirt and rocks. The rating as “hard” is accurate. After all that being said, I would do this hike again sometime. The view at the top is pretty cool. And it’s a good one to get your heart pumping.

Difficult but rewarding! Well marked trail that’s easy to follow, but steep and hard. Gets the heart pumping for sure. With lots of breaks, we made it as far as we could until the snow blocked the trail. Absolutely worth it. A couple spots for camping along the way. Road to trailhead closed, so that adds an extra mile I believe, but I didn’t start my recording until the official trailhead.

Very steep, difficult hike with beautiful views. Couldn’t make it to the peak because of the snow but it was a great hike nonetheless. The trail was very easy to follow, just beware of the switchbacks!

Great trail for a beginner mountain biker. My 8year old daughter and 11 year old daughter did this trail and did great! So much fun!
