seems like a lifetime ago We took our 3 month old on a Utah road trip. This was a great hike and I recommend the narrows for a different flavour too.
While I expected 'company' on the trail... it was way more than I expected. Seemed a bit like an ant-hill - with constant stream of folks up & down.... Still worth the hike... but should have gotten there earlier in the day. :(
Fun hike up the angel.
Fun way to begin the day. An early start avoids the crowds. Up next inspiration point!
Very enjoyable hike at the beginning of a one week trip to Zion, Bryce, and rim-to-tim of the Grand Canyon.
i was sorta disappointed by the amount of 'exposure' on the hike. i was under the impression i'd be scrambling up a knife-edge ridge...instead it was an easy, quite wide path to the top. the view wasn't bad though, it was an easy up and down taking only about 1hr 40min
Lots of compact snow and ice on the ridge made for some interesting travel, but kept away all but a half dozen or so. Great views!
I was scared enough in a couple of places to use the chains on the way up but enjoyed the exposure later. It was a great hike.
One day in the park and this is definitely the thing to do for the best views.
Awesome scramble to the summit. Since we went in the evening on a weekday, it wasn't as crowded as normal, but we still saw lots of folks. Great views from the top and the knife ridge was spectacular.
It's like climbing an oversized Bonzai. Chains and makeshift stairs lead the way, just watch out for the hundreds of people that will be using them with you. Angel's Landing has to be in the top 20 of classic National Park hikes.
Funny enough, this was a first date for my girlfriend and I. It turned out far better than meeting at a coffee shop.
The chains were really busy on our return from the summit, but was still a great hike with great views of the canyon. It was a bit icy in a couple sections which made it all the more hair-raising.
The trail up was nice, but once we got to the ridge and then to the little saddle, it became icy in certain area. Because of this, it wasn't as crowded as people say it is. Going down with the snow/ice was a little scary, but doable. Sick views
Awesome hike. I couldn't bring myself to use the railngs or posts; it felt like cheating. The route was crawling with people, but still worth it.
In all different seasons--March, December (with snow), September, October.
It's always a nice hike, and you can run up it pretty quickly.
In my first trip to Zion. Great views!
After blasting the Narrows, took the girl up AL at around 5ish, ended up racing back down to the car by the light of a small BD Orbit lantern. Downclimbing exposed 4th class in the dark for her wasn't exactly a good time. Caught the second to last bus out of Zion. She was kinda mad...
Loved the exposure, as long as I could hang on.
This was my 2nd time up Angels Landing. One of the "must do" hikes!
A great little Hike.
