    Eek! Not a fan of heights, so I think I would’ve chickened out of this hike. Props to you!

      This was a truly scary hike! I’m glad I went back or I would have regretted it. But I definitely had to work up my courage to return 🙂 If you go to Zion there are plenty of easy or moderate trails if you want to ease in…

      I’m so glad we conquered our fears and went back to the hike after chickening out. Such an amazing experience!

    Wow, what an amazing hike. When I was in Zion I had my backpack with me and eschewed the day hikes for the backcountry camping in the interior. While that experience was equally awesome, I wish that I would have made some time for the Angel Landing day hikes. Thanks for inspiring me to come back to Zion. BTW, I love the sweet Captcha 🙂

      Backcountry camping in Zion must have been an adventure! I loved the hiking in Zion– they had a good mix of trails, from super easy to downright scary. And the views were spectacular.

    I have always wanted to do this climb. I went to Zion once but with a group. None of them was into the park hikes. Now, I would like to go with my husband and tackle several hikes. I am not sure I will have the courage to do a hike like the one you are presenting here. I freaked out just by looking at the pictures.

      Angel’s Landing is intimidating but it is worth it! I’m glad we turned back after chickening out. If you want to start out with a tamer hike (height-wise), definitely try the Narrows hike next time you are in Zion. You’ll get wet but it is totally flat. There are also a number of simple trails with scenic views, like the Watchman trail. It’s definitely worth a return visit to check them out 🙂

    I’m glad you finished! I’ve done this entire hike a couple of times and it is such a great hike for the young and fearless. I don’t remember being scared when I hiked it in my early 20’s, but now that I have children, the thought of that last half-mile scares me to death.

      We’re also glad we made it through Angel’s Landing! We would have really regretted skipping it. It really is an amazing hike 🙂
