Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park is a short but strenuous hike to an amazing viewpoint of Zion Canyon. Many just make it to end of the trail, but if you don’t mind heights, there is an opportunity to continue along the top of the rock formation with a steel chain assisting you through the difficult sections. If you can, it is well worth it to do the hike in the early morning for better weather and less crowds. If you normally use poles for hiking, make sure you attach rubber tips as most of the hike is on concrete. When you arrive at the difficult upper section, be sure to leave your poles behind and pick them back up on the way down. I definitely recommend Angel’s Landing.
