  on the path to Angel's Landing
by windsorgirl

This is an excellent, but strenuous 4 mile return hike to a spectacular viewpoint at Scout Lookout.

From here you can continue another half mile up a very steep incline using chains along a narrow ridge to Angel's Landing. It is not recommended for anyone with a fear of heights.

You will gain 1488 feet in elevation along this hike and will ascend the steep switchbacks of Walter's Wiggles. There are excellent views along the way. See my travelogue for more photos.

Directions: Take the shuttle bus to The Grotto.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
