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.)

Wonderful day

2 years ago

Our guide Kelsi was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with. She is kind and knowledgeable about the parks. She made us feel so comfortable approaching the more complex parts of Angel's Landing. She is so easy to talk to and it really felt like we were on a hike with our friend. She is certainly an asset and we would gladly do another trip with her or Wildland Trekking in the future. This is our second time using Wildland Trekking and we look forward to our next adventure.

Second Hike with Wildland - Fantastic Value

2 years ago

For my bachelorette party, we did a custom day hike in Zion. With a group of 11 girls + a variety of hiking experience, it was a bit all over the place but our guides Corey Hassell and Ben Crawford were incredible. They were accommodating if we needed to stop for snacks (they provided) or drinks. They also educated us on the park's history and geology. They brought an amazing lunch (cheese, charcuterie, fruits and vegetables, carrot cake), put together a varied itinerary (Angels’ Landing, Weeping Rock, River Walk) and made sure that everyone had an unforgettable day. This was my second time hiking with Wildland and even for day hikes, what they provide is a fantastic value. I can't wait to continue using them for my next trip!
