Description

Angels Landing is one of the most famous and exciting hikes in any of America’s national parks. We begin in the valley and switchback up an improved trail for nearly 1500 feet. The trail tops out on a tower with vertical dropoffs on nearly every side. We follow along a narrow, exposed fin of rock with dizzying drop-offs on both sides. The pinnacle of our hike is a lofty perch, providing absolutely magnificent 360 degree views. We’ll enjoy lunch here at this truly amazing spot, then descend back to the valley floor.

Please note: this hike is not for the faint-of-heart or for anyone with a significant fear of heights. Reaching the top requires passing a very exposed section of hiking/climbing where a slip or fall would most likely be fatal. We also do not operate this tour from November through mid March due to very dangerous ice that can persist on the trail.

(Important: We run hikes in almost all weather conditions and very rarely cancel. See our terms and conditions for information on cancellations and refunds.)

SUMMARY OF DIFFICULTY
This hike has extreme exposure with long drop-offs, and is a strenuous climb. It is not for young children or anyone fearful of heights. A portion of the hike is paved, but the last section runs along the spine of a steep, narrow ridge to the summit with drop-offs on both sides. There are chains that hikers can grab onto on some of the very exposed sections. Unfortunately, people fall to their deaths occasionally from Angels Landing, so be sure you’re physically and mentally prepared for this hike. If you are, you’ll have an amazing time!

Absolutely wonderful

Absolutely wonderful trip. Our guide Sam was awesome in helping through the difficult parts, fun to talk to and just a joy to be around. Everything about the trip was perfect. We have made several trips to the area and we will be back and Wildland will be our first call for guided trips. You can't go wrong with Wildland Trekking. The most knowledgeable and fun guides in the area. We will definitely be using them again.

Very Impressed!

We went with Wildland Trekking Company for a group event and could not have been more impressed. They gave confidence to some less experienced hikers, great camaraderie, and fantastic food!
