About This Spot

Due to its central location, this is the most beautiful view of Zion Canyon. To access it requires good physical condition and some exertion, but above all, you shouldn’t have fear of heights. Most people in average condition can do this hike by pacing themselves, but don’t push it if you feel dizzy in the chains section and exercise caution at all times. This hike is exhilarating, but keep you attention on the trail; every year brings its load of accidents, some fatal. You will need about 3 hours round-trip to hike and photograph Angels Landing.

The vista from the top of Angels Landing is sensational and well worth the effort. You can see the entrance to Zion Canyon opening up to the right, while in the center you get a breathtaking view of the Great White Throne. To the left, the canyon meanders toward the Temple of Sinawava.
