Angel's Landing is one of Zion's most spectular scenic outlooks; it can be reached only by a very demanding hike on the West Rim Trail.

Almost in the center of the Zion Canyon, the summit of Angel's Landing offers incredible panoramic views of the entire canyon. In my opinion, it offers the best effort/ratio in the Southwest (Disclaimer: I have only hiked in the Grand Canyon, Zion and Bryce Canyon)....More

We went to Angel's landing with the first morning bus and it was a great idea! In the morning it is not hot and crowded at all, so its the best way to have a lifetime experience!

Most people have no idea how dangerous this hike can be. You can not be afraid of heights and have to be very sure and steady on your feet. The last 2 miles of the hike have a 1200 foot drop on both sides. Part...More

This was an amazingly beautiful hike. At every turn, there was a view and it was beautiful. It is a hard hike, I'm not going to lie. There are twenty one switch backs called Walter's Wiggles that take the breath out of you no matter...More
