Zion National Park – Angel’s Landing
"I saw the tracks of angels in the earth: the beauty of heaven walking by itself on the world." - PetrarchThe hike back down is not quite as bad, now that you've gotten used to being up here. It's still pretty treacherous, so take your time navigating the chains back down to Scout's Lookout. Once there, it's a pretty easy downhill hike, or you can even jog it if you'd like. When you're all done, hop on the shuttle and head on over to the Castle Dome Café, which is adjacent to the Zion Canyon Lodge, and treat yourself to some ice cream or a nice cold beer. You've earned it.
Cons: Steep, Potentially Dangerous, Crowds.
Overall: One of America's truly remarkable hikes. The Angel's Landing Trail is a must see if you are going to be hiking in Zion National Park. Angel's Landing is definitely one for your bucket list. I was fortunate enough to cross it off of mine, but that certainly doesn't mean I won't be visiting it again, and soon. Until next time. Namaste!
