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.

Well done trail. Walters wiggles switchbacks are an engineering marvel. Many chains on the final ascent by the sheer dropoffs. Non stop gorgeous views of Zion canyon. Plenty of room at the top viewing area. You will never be alone.

Anywhere else but Zion this would be amazing. If you have limited time you might skip this one. The final loop trail is fun and a good area for a lunch break.

Truly epic and unique hike!

We did this on a Tuesday in mid May - took the first Zion shuttle at 6am from the Visitors Center to the #6 Grotto stop. Probably about 20 other hikers heading up the trail at that time. It was a bit chilly in the morning (about 50 degrees), sun hadn't peaked over the mountains yet and most of the hike was in the shade, so a jacket and layers is a must! The first half of the hike is paved but pretty strenuous because you're walking steeply up the side of the mountain. A good 45 minutes of uphill effort. Then you reach the chains which is the coolest part! Luckily, we were the first ones up so there was no one coming back down yet, so that made the chain hike much easier and more enjoyable!! As the day goes on, you have people coming both up and down the narrow chains section - which causes some traffic jams. We bumped into a few people on our hike down the chains, so just step aside as best as possible and be patient (could add an extra 20 min or so to your hike).

The view from the top is worth it! Great spot for a light breakfast. Only a handful of other hikers.

Now, if you're a photographer, there is a con for getting up early and having an easier hike - the valley is still partially in shadow. You'll either have to brave the crowds later in the day for better lighting or simply bring extra food/water and just hang at the peak for a few hours until the sun is right. We stayed for about 45 minutes, snapped a few long exposures and timelapses before heading back down.

Besides a bit of congestion at the chains, the hike down was super easy. I can imagine a weekend during high season, this hike would be super packed and frustrating! But mid week, early in the morning - it was perfect!!!! Took us under 3.5 hours.

Great hike! I have done this hike 3 times, twice in the summer and once in the winter with snow. This trail is one of the most popular, so go early or later in the afternoon to avoid the mid-day heat. Hiking up the chains towards the end is always fun. The views are worth the climb!

Did this last Tuesday. If you want to see the amazing views with limited waits, take the first shuttle. that means get in line before 630 at the visitors center.even for a short hike, wear proper shoes and bring water! I was surprised the amount of people unprepared. the last .5 mile up wasn't as scary as thought. amazing views. Walters Wiggles was a blast going up! do remember people going up have the right of way....be patient going down.

Beautiful views and fun to hike. Plenty of friendly people along the trail.

Great hike with the biggest challenge as the day goes on is the CROWDS! (I got to the visitors centre at 6:30am and there was already a long queue for the first shuttle)
Passing is difficult at certain points as I discovered coming back down and the crowds coming up increased, so patience is required. Not really technically difficult, as long as you're ok with heights just take your time and use common sense. And the overly friendly chipmunks at the top almost as rewarding as the views!
