Angles’ Landing via The Grottos
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.
Zion West Rim
Take shuttle to The Grotto stop. Take Kayenta Trail up to Scout Lookout and Angels Landing. Then climb up West Rim Trail to the top. Turn left and take Telephone Canyon Trail through mesa of fire damaged forest. At junction take West Rim Trail along rim overlooking Ziln Canyon. Finally at junction head back down to return. 16 miles and 3500 feet elevation change, but incredibly beautiful and worth every inch.
