The switch backs and Walters Wiggles are the worst part of the hike! My friend and I are relatively in shape females in our 20s and had to stop a few times up the longer switch backs.

If you don’t mind heights and enjoy a bit of challenging foot work you will love the part with the chains to get up to Angel’s Landing. I actually opted to not use the chains for the most part and it’s honestly probably easier. There are plenty of places to hold on to the rocks and stay balanced. Passing other hikers coming up or down can be tricky, but for the most part is fine if and there are plenty of places to step to the side to let people pass.

Bring lots of water and a snack or two. I drank 3L for the whole hike and we ate peanut butter sandwiches and enjoyed the views for about half an hour at the top. Get there early! We started the hike at about 7:45 am and it was already getting crowded. It was more crowded coming down than going up. We were lucky that it was raining on our way up the chains, so many people were scared to go and we had the trail to ourselves. A bit slick in places but never unsafe. It’s a must do hike!

Amazing hiking trail, awesome views from the top of the trail. I finished the entire hike in about 4 hours. Either start hiking on this trail early in the morning or later in the afternoon to avoid the crowd.

beautiful walk

Absolutely unreal.

awesome, just a bit crowded.

Loved it!! Get there early!!!

Best hike that I've ever done. Definitely difficult at times, but it is 100% worth it.

Amazing views. Steep grade, but well worth the effort.

Really fun and relaxing hike, compared to the heat of previous hikes in this park. Recommend renting the boots/socks/stick to stabilize and keep balance as well as insulate.

Please, don’t feed the rock squirrels - it makes them fat and gives them a strange flavor.

wooooooohoooooo! don't be scared! go all the way up! your chances of falling off the cliff

Great trail! Beautiful vistas. I didn't do the final chain section - wet, sandy rocks and a phobia of heights.

Amazing experience!

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 starter hike for Zion National Park.

GO AS EARLY AS YOU CAN STAND! Views from angels landing can’t be beat, and the half mile trail at the end is scary but fun. However, after 9 am it’s going to be crowded on 1 way climbing sections to the point it can be dangerous.

Easy trails, nice views but as you get higher you see the road and parking lots.

Done it three times. Excellent hiking adventure. Not for the faint of heart but those who respect the majesty, grandeur and power of these rockreffic experiences.

Loved this. It gets narrower the father you go. I had good hiking shoes and wool socks which worked well. I had a tracking pole. This is a lot of fun!

Easy walk

My son and I did this hike last week. Definitely get to the park early to get in line for the first shuttle. It is tough hike to get to Scouts Landing and then another 1.1 miles out and back to the top of Angels Landing. I’m 55 and in okay shape. I wish I had done some training on a stair master or squats before the hike. My thighs were hurting the next day!

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

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.

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.

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

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.
