      The spectacular views of Zion Canyon make Angel's Landing one of Zion National Park's top attractions but it takes some effort to get there. A 5-mile, 4-hour round trip, the trail climbs steadily through attractive woodland before hitting Walters Wiggles, a series of 21 sharp switchbacks. Shortly after this you're onto Angels Landing Trail, a narrow sandstone ridge with sheer drops on each side. The end of the trail stands 1500 ft above the valley floor and offers stunning 360-degree views.

      If you go:
      Sections of chain provide a degree of security on the most exposed sections of the trial but this is definitely not a walk for small children or anyone with the remotest fear of heights!
