The West Rim trail starts in the valley and follows the Angels Landing route up the Refrigerator Cyn switchbacks for the first two or three miles. At the top, skip the scramble up Angels Landing and continue on the good trail to the north. This trail, like the East Rim trail, is blasted out of the solid rock cliff side. It contiues up three or four from AL to the mesa top, 2500 ft above the valley floor.
Hike the loop on top (Telephone Cyn)to take in the views, set up camp, or start walking the many miles north to Lava Point. If you're going all the way to Lava Point, plan on a night out.
