Scout Lookout via West Rim Trail
If you're interested in getting close to Angels Landing without doing the scary part, this moderate out-and-back is for you.
Pay for your pass (https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/fees.htm) at the park entrance just north of Springdale, Utah, then park at the visitor center and catch one of the frequent shuttles (https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/shuttle-system.htm). Get off at The Grotto and cross the road for the trailhead.
There's no special permit required for this hike, but the trail gets crowded fast; catch an early bus if you can.
Moderate to strenuous hike to Angels Landing, the most popular hike in Zion National Park, and, in my opinion, filled with many people who should not be hiking this trail, but non-the-less - they are there. The trails is paved all the way to where the cable begin. This is where it gets interesting - people climbing and descending along the narrow ridge, and often must yield to others. The views along this hike are mesmerizing as they are when one arrives at the top. The trail along the cables is treacherous, and in fact one of our more experienced hikers broke his ankle while coming down and had to be evacuated by a team of rangers.
