It was challenging, and the heat didn't help, but it was certainly fun and worthwhile. It goes up and up for a long time with lots of switchbacks. Start early to avoid the heat if going in the summer - we started by about 7:30...More

This is a strenuous hike. We did the hike in about 5 hours. It is strictly all uphill until you hit ~.4 miles from the end of the trail. You will be exposed in full sun for most of the trail so bring plenty of...More

Total trip is around 4.5 hours. Trail starts of paved through massive switchbacks. The last mile is easy. You get a great view and a slot canyon thrown in for a bonus. My advice is to do the hike if Angels Landing is packed or...More

Great hike. Hearty challenge not recommended for the weak heart. Take lots of water and food. Do not understimate the trail. Lots of switch backs.

On May 30th in 97 (36) degree heat I trudged my way up this massive, rocky, scorching, unrelenting, overwhelming, cliff. It nearly killed me going up. The views from the top were amazing and worth it but heck what a hike! It was a joy...More

This trail starts with a climb on good paths that is about 3,5 mile long, almost just uphill. Passing some nice canyons on the way up. Last mile is very easy. The final destination is probably one of the best views from Zion National Park....More
