Hiking Angel’s Landing, Utah’s Scariest Trail

As the title indicates, Angel’s Landing has often been referred to as one of the scariest day hikes in America. At 5.2 miles round trip and an elevation gain of 1,488, it is a short hike to scenic views from the top. But it is the last half mile that makes one question one’s sanity: the bold trail traverses across a narrow sandstone ridge with sheer cliff drops on all sides. Of course it had to be conquered!
