Great hike. We ended up reaching the chains in a heavy rain and fog, (This was the October that Zion NP received 10+" of rain). Reached the actual landing and was over shadowed by the quickly coming darkness that only great canyon walls can provide. Reached the bottom of the trail and jumped on the shuttle, and got to see a rare gray fox in the headlights.

I climbed Angels Landing on my birthday with my best friend :) What a great hike!! Loved the challenging route and views from the top. We went in the afternoon and during the week. On weekends it can be a zoo up there so I found out when backpacking the West Rim Trail in the fall of 2005.

Great Hike. Spectacular Views. Best to leave early and bring plenty of water.

It was a desert hot summer day, but we did not take the rangers advice to hike in the morning or late afternoon. We started the hike at 11am. The first part of the trail was totally exposed and it was hot and we felt little stupid, but our general idea was that if we hike off peak hours there will be much less people to deal with. The second part is through a canyon which offered a valuable shade and than to the switch backs which were in some shade as well. The last part on the fin it self was easy and even under the noon sun not that harsh. Hiking at that time was definitely a good choice. Ran in to only about 4 people on the way to the summit and that was a big advantage due to the narrow trails on the fin where must be definitely some “traffic jams” during mornings and afternoons. There is nothing like some one above you falling down or someone behind you being too close. Also I like to move fast. There ware a lot of chains (someone local told us that they added new ones), but I did not use them. I like to use my hands on the rock and the path close to the chains tend to be more slippery = dangerous from all the people walking on the same spots. There are a lot of other choices. This must be the rock climber inside me :-). Also I thought the metal chains must have been very hot, but according to my husband they actually weren’t at all. On the way back I noticed that people who started to hike later had the first part of trail in the shadow, but the canyon and the switch backs were totally exposed to the sun, so I don’t really see that much of a difference. Also after the hike don't forget to use one of the numerous swim holes in the Virgin river. They are right off the beginnign of the trail. It felt soooo good.

Long haul up a vertical and overhanging wall. The Virgin Creek crossing was cold in January. Also trail ran the standard route a few times.

This was the first item on the agenda for my first visit to Zion. Started up first thing in the morning--decidedly chilly, but no one else around then, although I ran into several groups on my way down. Pretty cool trail, but I think the NPS should remove those cables. Zion Canyon was every bit as spectacular as I'd anticipated.



Headed over to the Weeping Rock TH to tag Observation Pt afterwards, then over to North Guardian Angel in the afternoon.

Loved the view to the road and the Virgin River, down the 1500-foot vertical cliff.

Was at the top just as the dark descended. The moon rise was beautiful.

This was a great experience. Comming from Denmark Zion and the mountains is fantastic - and Angels Landing spectacular. The drops at several places are amazing.

Did this as a spur to the West Rim trail down from Lava Point. Incredible views. The "climbing" may be simple, but the exposure is very real. This is one of those great hike/climb routes (ala Half Dome cables) that offer a taste of adventure for non-climbers and big wimps like myself. We will have a trip report with picture available by mid-October, 2005 at www.sierrasoul.com

Wow. This was a really cool hike. Well worth it - the trail is paved and relatively easy. It's too bad they put those chains in up top because it's more fun to scramble anyway, and they're really not needed.

Big Fun, especially watching my hiking buddy get squeamish around the cables!

My favorite hike at Zion. Balancing physical being and agility. The views from the summit are remarkable and provide a surreal aspect of life.

What a great hike! Did it once from the canyon and once from the West Rim Trail, which was a great hike. We came from Kolob Canyon in June, only seeing one other group the whole trip. Southern Utah really stuck on me and, like the previous poster, decided to build nearby.

Fun trail for the family...I love Zion. This whole trip inspired me to build a winter place next to Snow Canyon State Park, St. George.
