It’s easy to immerse yourself in the wilderness while exploring Zion, but to truly appreciate the beauty of the park, you’ll need to take on the Angels Landing hike.

Know Before You Go Climbing to the pinnacle of Angels Landing is an adventure. You won’t find a nicely paved trail leading directly from the trailhead to the overlook.

What makes the Angels Landing hike time so long is that parts of the trail are incredibly narrow: hikers will have to hang on to a chain for a sense of safety and support.

Who Should Hike Angels Landing? Those afraid of heights should probably not hike to Angels Landing. But who else shouldn’t try the hike?

Those who are out of shape should not attempt this hike. Angels Landing has hikers pushing themselves along a trail that ascends a total of 1500 feet.
