Trip Planner:   USA  /  Utah  /  Zion National Park  /  Angel's Landing

Angel's Landing, Zion National Park

If you're willing to challenge yourself to walk up narrow paths and climb steep ridges at Zion National Park, you can reach Angel's Landing and be rewarded with a majestic view. The trail is considered extremely demanding--especially the final stage. The early part of the hike features plenty of pleasant photo opportunities. As the trail begins to get steeper, any crowds will thin out because most people turn back. Reaching the summit can be dangerous--especially so when wet or icy. It requires scaling some serious heights and using chains anchored in the rocks, so it's not for everyone. This final part of the climb is not intended for children.

  • Hiked Angels landing on the 3rd and didn’t find it as crowded as I expected from what I have read. Everyone was respectful with climbing the chains. It was very hot at 100F degrees. I would recommend ...  more »
  • This hike os definetely a must. It features very high and steep cliff which are scary to those with a fear of height. But even to those with this fear, the reward is highly worth the effort!  more »
  • This is a fine walk made far less appealing by the huge numbers of people doing it. We caught the 6.00 shuttle in an attempt to beat the heat and the crowds and were some of the first to reach the sum...  more »

  • Great hiking experience. I didn't make to the top of the chain I was a bit afraid, but I'm happy that I reached this place. The view from the top is breathtaking. Come from early morning to avoid the crowd.
  • Definitely recommend this hike if you are looking for an adventurous hike with the best views ever! It is a dangerous and strenuous hiking trail so I would look into it before you go to see if you want to hike it. I would recommend getting there as early as you can in the morning to catch the shuttle to the hike so that it is cool weather and a minimal amount of people in the morning. By the time afternoon comes there are already tons of people just waiting to go on the hikes and it can feel crowded at times but still one of the most amazing experiences ever that I would recommend!
  • Breath taking view once you get up there! If you're height averse, you can still hike up most of the way up. Unfortunately, you won't get nearly the view as you do when you actually get to Angels Landing. The hike on the spine is scary but not unbearably so, just keep walking.
  • Somewhat strenuous hike. Very steep to get to the top. Expect a lot of people... Especially when you get to the chains. Only one way up/down. Spectacular views!!
  • It's a great hike. One I have repeated many times. As long as you're ok with heights there's no reason to miss this trek. I wouldn't advise it but I've taken my children, one at a time ,with me to the very top. The youngest was my daughter she was 5 at the time.
