Great hike - shame there are so many other people on it though. Nice exposure near the end and several in my wife's family stopped, leaving my wife and I to continue. On the way down I ran into someone I knew from high school - 12 years earlier in Texas. That has to be my most random encounter on a trail.

An amazing stop on a solo cross-country drive back from Death Valley to Colorado. Froze my butt in the empty campground the night before and really enjoyed the strenuous climb to warm up in the morning. The chains were great fun - reminded me of Old Rag in Virginia. This is one of those deeply amazing places in southern Utah that makes you feel more alive just being there.

Last peak on a road trip around the country. We're almost back to California. One of the most spectacular views we saw throughout the entire trip. Looking down Zion valley was like looking into a prehistoric time where the land created life and not the other way around.

Angels Landing was the first of the more than 130 different Zion summits I've attained over the years.

One of the best hikes around. Did it most interestingly in Aug 2003 in heavy rain and high winds. What a rush!

-3rd time: in fall 2008 with DB, Tom Jones and Andy Archibald;

-4th time: in March 2009, as the 5th peak of the day
(25 minutes roundtrip from Scout Lookout, despite the crowds, and without using my hands!);

-5th time: 6/13/09 - wrapping up a 17-mile/4,400 foot roundtrip jaunt up to the West Rim highpoint atop Horse Pasture Plateau.

Hiked this trail during a whirlwind road trip across the U.S. (NY to S.D., Wy, Montana,Wa, Or, Ca, Nv, Ut, Co, and down south to Chalotte, NC. Oddly enough, this trip took place before I discovered rock climbing(years later).Missed out on some good climbs on that trip. The main road was littered with RVs. Great airy views on this trail, once you conquer the paved switchbacks. By the way ,broke my timing belt in Wyoming around Buffalo, not so good, especially with a Honda.

So Alan says to me...let's go in the afternoon. Have you any idea how hot the hike to the top is on a June afternoon??? Other than the heat, it was a great hike. The views were stunning. Lots of fun.

A good, fun hike, though it's pretty crowded.

Nice spring hike when the high peaks are under snow... nice exposure, but the chains aren't really necessary.

Nice view, but too bad the route is so modified with chains and such.

I climbed this one with a party of around 10 on a hot Labor Day weekend. The chains on the approach to the summit were interesting, as were the switchbacks. Views from the top were well worth the climb. Drank tons of water!

What a cool hike to an awesome summit. My wife Elaine, and I Hiked the trail round trip in about 3 hours. There was snow and ice on the upper portions of the trail which made the traverse from the scouts lookout very intresting.

Nice hike. I have never seen a paved trail before. We saw several people chicken out before the last section.

My friend and I up there last November and there was still some fall color on the cottonwoods down below. The views of Zion were breathtaking. We were off of the knife-edge and back at Scout Lookout just before dark. There, we spent a few minutes trying to persuade a family not to continue the class 3 climb to the summit. They didn’t even have flashlights. Fortunately, they decided to hike back down the trail.

Even after having climbed it many times, this trail has never lost it's charm and excitement. The last 1/2 mile not only presents a fun little challenge, but it also gives the best views of the park. Amazing!

Everytime we find an excuse to visit Zion, we hike this trail. The effort to view ratio is excellent, and it's just exciting and difficult enough that one loses the crowds erupting from the tour busses. If you only have one day in the park, do this hike.

Wow! What an incredible hike! I almost didn't make it to the top though when my fear of heights got the best of me! But I finally overcame my fear and made it to the summit! The views are spectacular and Walter's Wiggles(the switchbacks) are really cool! I have tons of photos and an in depth trip report on my website

This is probably the most fun short hike I've been on. The paved beginning is a pain, but that last half mile more than makes up for it. I would drive the five hours to Zion just for this hike.

Did this little beauty just a couple of months ago. Very nice half-day hike/climb. Ascending/descending the chains, on the upper portions of the ridge, is the best part! Extremely nice views of Zion Valley from the summit as well!
