Spot Comments:

  • This trail is in two parts - the hike up the narrow canyon and up "Walters Wiggles" - the most elaborate set of switchbacks you will ever see on a trail. The second part is the scramble out the narrow sliver of rock to Angels Landing with a chain to hold onto and a drop of thousands of feet on each side. Its an amazing adventure and it's SCARY!

  • Haven't been to this one in ten or so years, but since then it's always reminded me of the Matthes Crest traverse in Yosemite.

  • Angels Landing is a National Parks classic!   After hiking up the wonderfully built and graded trail (WPA, CCC?), turn right and follow the steel chains and giant eye-bolts to the top.  Scrambling up this narrow rock fin is not for the faint-hearted.
