This classic dayhike runs up a narrow canyon then along a formidable knife-edge ridge to a giant monolith with mind-boggling redrock views.

Angel’s Landing is the most popular day hike in Zion National Park, and justifiably one of the top hikes in any national park. It's a straight-up classic. Start out along the virgin River on a mellow paved trail before the path kicks in a hurry. Leave river valley on steep switchbacks that cut into canyon walls and then head into the tight confines of Refrigerator Canyon. Reach Walter's Wiggles, and infcmous set of short switchbacks that zigzag 21 times to the top of the ridge. The Wiggles are named after Walter Ruesh, Zion National Park’s first superintendent, who in 1926 constructed this feat of engingeering.

Catch your breath on Scout Lookout, a broad saddle with views into Zion Canyon and then go south on the Angels Landing Trail to a pinched ridge. Here you'll have to watch your footing on uneven terrain (1,000-ft. drop-offs on either side of trail), and if you need to (and you likely will), hold onto chains bolted into rock face to ascend exposed ridgeline. Then, the payoff: Angels Landing. From the top of your deserved perch, you'll see massive, sheer-walled canyons extending in every direction. Look down--way down--to spot the Virgin River flowing through Zion Canyon around the horseshoe bend of the Angel's Landing promontory. Snap your hero shots before retracing the exposed route back to the main trail, and then down to the canyon floor.

GEAR UP
In the rivers and canyons, you'll want sticky-soled shoes, preferably mid-height or taller, and a walking stick or trekking poles for stability and pool probing. For hikes up the canyon, sturdy hiking shoes are recommended. Quick-dry shorts work work well for most seasons. Bring an extra dry shirt, an extra synthetic sweater, and a rain shell, even in the hottest weather. Shade, wet clothing, and canyon winds can be surprisingly cold. Thunderstorms can make the canyon frigid. You can rent specialty items in Springdale at the Zion Adventure Company, 36 Lion Boulevard Springdale, UT 84767; 435-772-1001, zionadventures.com

The most amazing hike I have ever undertaken. The views are breathtaking! Not for acrophobics, or children, or clumsy folks.
