If you have 1/2 a day and are feeling energetic then Angels Landing is a spectacular hike. To start this hike you get off the shuttle at The Grotto stop. The trail first climbs Walters Wiggles with over 21 switchbacks in a row. The elevation change is 1,488 feet for the whole hike over about 2.5 miles one way. The National Park Service estimates the 5 mile round trip hike will take about 5 hours. The last part of the hike is along steep cliffs. Some places you just hold on to a chain embedded into the rock to keep your balance on the narrow trail. So the top part of this hike is not for anyone that is afraid of heights.

This is the start of the scary part. Lots of steep cliffs and a narrow trail. I would turn back here if you are afaid of heights.

She is on the edge. This picture is not an illusion. It’s a long way down.
This is the start of the final climb to Angels Landing. Lots of nice dropoffs for some excitement.
