This was a heck of a climb through some switch backs in 100 degree heat. When you get close to the top it feel like it will never end. The last part opens up to a 360 degree view of Zion valley. This point is...More

I don't think we knew what we were getting ourselves into when this hike began, but the 4 miles up are not easy... There will be switchbacks, watch your footing because it can get slippery, steep portions, and it'll challenge your soul. You'll wonder whether...More

It's worth the hike. Bring plenty of water and energy bars. Easier to start from the top by zion ponderosa. If you have the stamina and don't mind strenuous hikes with drop offs you can take the hike from the floor of the canyon.

Not everyone in our family was on board with doing the Angel's Landing hike for the fear factor (especially our 11 year old). Since we didn't want to spend the whole hike with a fearful child we decided on the Observation Point trail instead and...More

If you can, try to enter this trail from the Zion Ponderosa Ranch Resort. It will shave off 2 miles of the total length. If you can't and you have enough energy, you can take the trail from inside Zion National Park. Its 4 miles...More

As another reviewer mentioned, taking this hike is a good alternative to Angel's Landing. Going at first light makes the experience more rewarding: It's cooler then with less crowds, and you will see light hitting various parts of the spires as it travels across the...More

I might be slightly wrong about beaver and cedar, now that I look at the map, but from Twin Knolls there are a lot of signs.
