Angel's Landing – Scariest Hike in America? Steep Drop off – Zion National Park, Utah

Angel's Landing – Scariest Hike in America? Steep Drop off – Zion National Park, Utah

One of the Scariest and Spectacular hikes in North America. Here’s a look at how Angels landing looks like with steep drop offs of 1,000 feet on both sides. Video shows me going up and down Angels Landing. It’s one of the most popular hiking trails in Zion National Park, Utah. It’s also listed as one of the top 10 hikes in North America.

Definitely make this one of the hikes on your bucket list.

Video recorded on April 24, 2017 using a GoPro and a FeiYu steadycam GoPro gimbal.

    Thanks for the views! Now I donโ€™t have to go.

  2. Amanda Stover on April 30, 2020 at 3:17 pm

    I hiked it twice as an 11 yo (I’m 12) it was fun and we got to feed chipmunks at the top with almonds also 17 people have died on it ๐Ÿ™ it was hard

  3. WootTootZoot on April 30, 2020 at 3:18 pm

    People have died on that trail

  4. Ryndan Riley on April 30, 2020 at 3:18 pm

    Not even the scariest hike in Zion. Hidden Canyon is.

  5. speterbilt on April 30, 2020 at 3:19 pm

    That weirdo runner

  6. Anthony Mendoza on April 30, 2020 at 3:19 pm

    For regular official type hikes (versus unofficial type casual trails), I think you are right or at least right up there.

  7. mark brown on April 30, 2020 at 3:21 pm

    great first date idea

  8. Jerry Xiong on April 30, 2020 at 3:22 pm

    Breath taking for sure, I’m afraid of heights so I will probably never see this awesome trail in real life.

  9. John Sickler on April 30, 2020 at 3:24 pm

    Looks safe to me

  10. audiotomb on April 30, 2020 at 3:26 pm

    I have hiked this twice
    I am scared of extreme heights but this didnโ€™t bother me.
    The top dips at 20 degrees.
    Do not go up when windy or poor weather.
    California Condors fly up the thermals of the cliff faces.

    Enjoy it!

    Looks like I can wing suit off of it

  12. Wishful Walking Videos on April 30, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    Iโ€™m really hoping to make a walking tour of Zion National Park one day! Including this walk! I hope I survive lol

  13. This dude 42 on April 30, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    Just from the music I could tell this is from 2017 lol

  14. Ted Waayers on April 30, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    Not scary…please I jogged to the top hands free

  15. Chris Keo on April 30, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    Why??? Just why? To say you did it?fukin dumb lol

  16. Live Fast on April 30, 2020 at 3:31 pm

    Amazing views but Not for me! Only matter time when earth shifts..

  17. Jay Meehan on April 30, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    K

  18. Pierre Poisson on April 30, 2020 at 3:34 pm

    are they trying to kill hikers? it’s an accident waiting to happen. geez

  19. Jay Anderson on April 30, 2020 at 3:34 pm

    It looks scarier in videos than it does in person, especially if youโ€™re a climber. I recommend anyone so inclined to do it, it is gorgeous! The government trail canyon lanes, island in the sky is infinitely scarier and dangerous, even for climbers.

  20. J Kim on April 30, 2020 at 3:35 pm

    Man, and I thought all thing crazy like this was only in China!

  21. Emerio Manzano on April 30, 2020 at 3:37 pm

    My parents hiked angels landing last November they said it was the hardest hike they’ve done

  22. Richard's World Traveler on April 30, 2020 at 3:37 pm

    Hmmm… I think I won’t put this on my bucket list. Or, it will be the last item on my bucket list ๐Ÿ˜€

  23. Wile Stoned on April 30, 2020 at 3:38 pm

    Amazing how long is the hike total?

  24. M. Hoffman on April 30, 2020 at 3:39 pm

    still on my bucket list

  25. Exploring California on April 30, 2020 at 3:40 pm

    Beautiful views

  26. Andrew Renfrow on April 30, 2020 at 3:42 pm

    Clickbaity name for a hike that is neither technical or scary

  27. Vikki Orlando on April 30, 2020 at 3:42 pm

    No thanks

  28. Tom Cleverley on April 30, 2020 at 3:42 pm

    Beautiful!!! I likely would have been game for that hike in my 20’s with a friend, but I couldn’t make it happen now. Thank GOD for the beautiful sights and for those who installed the grab chain.

  29. Needs More Flash!!! on April 30, 2020 at 3:43 pm

    That guy going down really fast thinks he looks cool. Not in the slightest, he looks reckless, and thoughtless. Take your time going down. There’s no shame in safety

  30. John Sanford on April 30, 2020 at 3:45 pm

    I’ve defiantly done more dangerous and scary hikes

  31. Jdean Drury on April 30, 2020 at 3:45 pm

    I wonder how many die each year hiking this trail

  32. Delivery Guy1 on April 30, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    Great video and narration!

  33. Joey K on April 30, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    I hiked this and it’s not that scary.
    Just hold on to the chains and you will be ok.

  34. Hannah Louise on April 30, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    I thought the thumbnail was minecraft ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

  35. Colin Clark on April 30, 2020 at 3:49 pm

    A few years ago I watched two kids ride unicycles all the way up and all the way down, never getting off to walk. And that includes the chain area.

  36. Don Kemp on April 30, 2020 at 3:50 pm

    Makes my hands sweat to watch the video. Iโ€™ve jumped out of planes and rappelled down 600โ€™ cliff…but this? No way.

  37. Hollywood Hustlng on April 30, 2020 at 3:51 pm

    Beautiful but my Vertigo says NO NO๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‚

  38. Michael Haskins on April 30, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    Thank you … I’ll pass . . .

  39. King Hyzer on April 30, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    Scariest hike? LOL it’s a class 3 with chain handrails!! Try a class 4 and get back to me ๐Ÿ™‚

  40. Free Soul on April 30, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    the scariest path in america is to go through customs checks at the airport … allahu akbar!

  41. EVEREST H on April 30, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    Are their any offroading spots in this park

  42. Get,Money, Jones on April 30, 2020 at 3:59 pm

    Israelites land

  43. Angelica Cline on April 30, 2020 at 4:01 pm

    This is awesome. About three years ago I had a stroke and became disabled. So videos like these are probably as close as I’ll ever come to experiencing this. to be honest I have a small fear of heights anyway so even if I was physically able to do it, I probably wouldn’t do it. if I ever recover enough to attempt something like this I would not let that hold me back and I will try.

  44. Rafinha Latvezzi on April 30, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    Itโ€™s called โ€œAngels Landingโ€ because after you fall and die, Angels Land to take you to heaven

  45. razony on April 30, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    F-Me. See that green patch next to that brown river. That’s me waving!

  46. Ron Nowlin on April 30, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    If you wanna know what’s scary about Angels Landing. Cross the Virgin river at her foot and you will find what is lost… If you dare…. Zion is the most beautiful place, The Landing is yours!
    Now is a great time go. One way or another. I challenge you to run up Wally’s wiggles. My 1st time up was 40 years ago in sandals with my service dog. No chain rails. Look where you step, step where you look.

  47. Monica Leigh on April 30, 2020 at 4:03 pm

    I did this hike. Wasnt as scary as it looks. But yes still scary

  48. Guadalupe Picasso on April 30, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    Nice footage, but the music absolutely ruins it. And, I say that as a fan of a lot of house and electronica music. I imagine the person who edited that music in to be the type of hiker who plays music out loud, no headphones, while hiking.

  49. matt moose on April 30, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    By far the best hike in US, hike the ap trail 2000 and change,half dome and others. This is the best bang for the buck hands down.

  50. VueTube on April 30, 2020 at 4:15 pm

    It’s ok…I’ll hike places like this when I have wings. Until then…I think I’ll stick to ground trails.
