kavakTourist Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 8, 2001

IMHO the most spectacular tourist trail in the park system. I was with a lady from Texas who had never been on a mountain before. I coaxed her up each section and she made the summit. Outwardly she wasn't too happy about the "risk" to her life, but I think if the truth be known she really was proud of herself overcoming her fears.

Incredible views and exposure make this a blast to hike. I will definitely do this again next time I'm in the park. The last .5 miles with the chains were easier than they look. Not only did I not touch the chains, I only needed to use my hands 4 or 5 times total.

We took an early start to avoid the hot temperatures, but took the second shuttle in order to avoid the crowds. As a result we had a beautiful and lonely hike and we were alone on the summit, where we found quietness and peace. Truly a recommended hike in Zion NP.

As time passed by and more people were arriving on the summit, there was this total asshole who found it necessary to carve his name with a knife into the sandstone on the summit. Although I asked him kindly to stop, he just continued his silly action, making an absolute wrong statement for his chilldren. At that moment I just wanted to throw this guy all the way down to the bottom of Angels Landing...I hope I am not the only one who reacts against such people...

With worm spells Zion can offer an amazing trip in late November when it is relatively uncrowded

The last half mile provides good views, shame about the first part, but I see why its needed with so many people. Still managed to get the summit alone with friends for a few minutes. Excellent views indeed.

I only had one day to spend in Zion and I knew I had to try this hike. The scenery on this hike is amazing. The only thing more amazing is that I basically had the whole trail to myself. A small group left the summit right before I arrived, so I was alone on top of Angels Landing. Hard to believe, from what I hear of the summer crowds.

Backpacked 3 days for 47 miles across Zion from Lee Pass at Kolob Canyon to East Entrance in June 2008. On Friday night (June 13), I had camped at West Rim Campsite #1. In the morning (June 14), I hiked 2 miles over to Scout's Lookout. Then I summitted Angel's Landing (pack free) with only my camera. Then I backpacked another 14 miles down the trail, up the valley, up the East Rim trail to East Entrance. It was actually kinda weird hiking down to Scout's Lookout instead of up to it. My legs felt remarkably fresh on Saturday despite having backpacked 26 miles the day before.

Hiked with my wife and son (baby in the backpack) for the first 2 miles, then continued to the summit on my own. The trail is spectacular with great views looking both north and south along Zion Canyon, but the crowds were a bit frustrating. I passed several petrified tourists who were clinging to the chains the entire time, but I thought the trail was wide enough for two lanes of traffic the majority of the time, and only steep enough to warrant the use of hands in a couple places.

Fun hike. I've probably done this about 5 times. Good views of the canyon.

I've been hearing about this hike for years. Finally made it on a beautiful April morning in lieu of a golf outing on a business trip. Started early to beat the heat and did a side trip up the West Rim Trail and around to the small waterfall on the east side of Cathedral Mountain.

Love this hike. I'm terrified and fascinated of heights at the same time. This is a perfect place. Had the summit to myself one August evening 2002. Decending in the dark was a bit nerve inducing for me though.

J and I came up here in the middle of summer with full packs in 100+ degree heat. Absolutely spectacular hike on the ridgeline, exposure is dizzying. We continued on another four miles on the West Rim trail before realizing our campsite didn't have any water. Right around then we realized camping out wasn't gonna work and backtracked the five miles back to the trailhead sans water.

My husband and I took the first shuttle bus into the park on a beautiful September morning. We wanted to be the first up Angel's Landing that morning. I had to use the restroom at the bus stop (my husband was a bit miffed for delaying the hike), had to pass people on the trail and eventually made it to Chicken Out Point. We saw plenty of people sitting and looking, not too many folks going to the top. We didn't see anything difficult about "the crux", and made our way to the top. Loved having the summit to ourselves for close to half an hour. After this hike, we made our way down to the Virgin River for another hike. Great day.

One of the most amazing hiking trails I've ever done, I could tell by the twisting in my stomach. Start Early though, I've done this early and at 'rush hour' and you practically have to stand in line to get up and negotiating some of those steps with a bunch o' folk can be a bit pressing.
