Was the first person on the trail and had the summit to myself, but passed 50 people on the way down! Much easier than I was led to believe- even the fin is fairly easy, unless you're terrified of heights. Nice hike.
Hiked Angel's Landing from the lodge in 3 exhausting hours round trip. The final ridge is magical especially with 100 degree temps thinning out the crowds.
this one was a bit of a personal challenge as i'm pretty bad around drop offs. had to scoot part of the way on my butt, i'll admit it, but i made it!
Hiked Angels Landing after coming out of the Virgin River Narrows. Very nice hike. Straight forward with a bit of excitement at the top. Zion is a stunning place.
Went with my old man long ago. Looking forward to passing through May 2007.
nice hike, gotta come back and do the wall though.
Great vistas, but the trail was too crowded.
Was lot easier than some people had warned. It was hot day in July and I just wanted to out. Too many people on the trail. But it was spectacular at the end. I love the eolian environment.
Beat the crowds too!
My first ever trip to Zion. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed this hike. Saw a rattlesnake on the way up.
Enjoyed the hike, although it was pretty crowded up there. Great views all the way.
Along with several friends, I hiked to the top during a rare, howling snowstorm. Great times.
I don't remeber what year I did it, but it was fun. I did it with one of those annoying boy scout groups that are always on the popular climbs :)
Helped a buddy drive from Sacramento, CA to St. Louis, MO over the weekend. We arrived at Zion at 9 in the morning after driving all night (w/ a brief stop in Vegas). We had about 4 hours to spare before getting back on the road, so we chose Angels Landing as our hiking venue. Although it wasn't terribly difficult, there were definently challenging parts. Nothing prepared us for the amazing view atop this huge rock. The weather was perfect, and the surroundings amazing. Wish we could have spent another day or two there. After Angels landing, we decided to take the short jaunt to the Emerald pools. This was a bit more disappointing, more like Emerald puddles, but this didn't detract from the incredible "time out" we had for several hours in the Fall.
Really easy, but nice with the fam. Awesome exposure at the top. Super hot day, the narrows from orderville is also a must do especially in the summer heat.
Spectacular exposure! Some parts make you almost want to have a rope handy at times. I particularly enjoyed the "sidewalk" section with the railing.
Several times over the years. Zion can be a zoo, but it's absolutely worth putting up with now and then.
First time to Zion. Did this hike with my wife, who was two months pregnant. Breathtaking hike!
I got up early to beat the crowds and it workes. I had the summit all to myself for sunrise. I warmed up, headed down and didn't see another person until Scout's Lookout.
I am not ashamed to say that I scooted on my butt like a scared little girl, or for the feminists like a scared little boy.
Excellent hike! Head back up the other trail from Scout's Lookout. It is some of the most beautiful scenery in Zion, and all the tourists flock to the landing. This area is relatively unused.
zion is an awesome place. watch out for the hungry chipmunks on top, they're experienced climbers yu know!
