Great way to end up a backpacking trip on the West Rim
One of my all time favorite hiking experiences. The view was amazing. Funny though ... there were tons of people on the trail....but only a couple on the summit...hmmm
Finished the 4 day trans-Zion hike with this one. Fun scrambles, great views, too many people hiking it that probably shouldn't :)
Did the summit round trip in under three hours. Very crowded, but the view was well worth it.
There were so many (big) people staggaring around on the chains and most of them didnt care if you fell off one of the vertical drop-offs on either side so my mountaineering instinct told me to do summit this another day. Love the scenery, no words can describe Zion.
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.
