Owner description: Angel's Landing is one of Zion's most spectular scenic outlooks; it can be reached only by a very demanding hike on the West Rim Trail.

This hike is not for the faint of heart for 2 reasons. 1) it is long and steep at times 2) it is dangerous at times. That being said, if you pay attention and take plenty of water you should be fine. Hint - coming back down is harder than going up, so be sure you are good with coming back down before you go all the way. I think it is worth the trip even if you only go to the point where the path ends and you start to climb along the chains. The views are amazing. We did not see any very young children on this hike; however, we did see youth and we did it with a 13 year old. The lower part of the trail is very hot and sunny, but even though it was around 100 the day we hiked, there is a fair amount of shade. This was my favorite hike of our 2 week trip to Utah.

OK, I admit it, I did not make it all the way to Angels Landing. It was evening, I felt tired and it was the wise choice for me. I stopped about 30 - 45 minutes before the end, just before a narrow rock bridge to the actual landing. The path is paved or sculpted most of the way, and there are chains you can hold when climbing. Yes. Climbing. It goes up, and up and further up. And a even further up if you make it to the Landing as my husband did. The view was breathtaking and I could follow my husband almost all the way to the top.

This is a great hike, but not for those with a fear of heights or for those that are not in good shape. Start the hike early and take plenty of water. Take your time on the last stretch. The views at the end of the trail are fantastic Do not take young children as there are lots of places they could fall off. This is a hike you won't forget!

Great experience!! Go early in the morning to avoid the heat and crowds. Bring lots of water. It is a heavy and difficult trail but once you are at the top and have this amazing view, you know it is worth it!!! The last part of the trail to the top is exciting, don't go if you are afraid of heights.

People have died attempting Angels Landing, and it's obvious why they have. At some points, the width of the trail is less than two feet wide, with a drop off of 1,500 feet straight down on either side.

Do not attempt this if you have a fear of heights. Do not attempt this if you aren't in excellent shape, with both knees working and good upper body strength. Do not attempt this if you can't climb a stairmaster for long periods. Do not attempt this if you have asthma. You must have great balance, too. NOT recommended for small children you can't control -- they could die. Seriously.

Take water. Take food. Know that you can leave your backpack at Scout's Lookout before the big, last climb, to be lighter and more balanced. This will be one of the hardest things you've ever done.

And then you'll smile at yourself the rest of your life, for having achieved it! It's a once-in-a-lifetime view.

Go! Do it!
