This 454 meters’ tall rock formation has one of the most famous trails in the Zion National Park. Earlier known as Temple of Aeolus, the 2.4 miles long hike to reach the top will keep you captivated as you get to witness nature's rugged beauty. This trail on top of a rock fin, open at both sides, allows hikers to enjoy the view from both sides. One of the most prominent features on the park, a lot of climbers even scale the walls of this column of rock. Indeed, a place where angels must definitely have landed.

Angels Landing Reviews & Ratings
Strenuous, but gorgeous views at the top! Make sure to start your hike early in the summer to beat the heat. Pack lots of water in a lightweight backpack!
This is a fantastic hiking trails. Bee were of the small pats to the end. Don't take the children out to the point. Start early in morning, it's getting hot during the day. Take with you plenty of water
A few weeks of the Planet Fitness treadmill on incline 15% will NOT get you ready for this place. ANY fear of heights, just chill at the bottom and save your legs. That being said, if you want a crazy hard/ fun hike, with unmatched views, this is for you. Take your time, hike, rest, drink water, but if you are on the fence about this one...GO!
Hold onto the chain! Was a breathtaking view at the top! The hike up can be difficult cause of the 21 switchbacks but very doable with a few breaks. Coming down is slightly steep but I did a light job down!
It is not a long hike but it is definitely a very tough one. I recommend hiking on cooler days. The sun and heat were very harsh. Be careful and stay hydrated. Have fun
