The first section of the trail is very steep and leads to the first photogenic overlook of the Zion Canyon.
Then the trail goes through the Refrigerator Canyon, which provides a blast of chilly air.
The second overlook arrives after many pinball switchbacks, right before the final section of the hike to the Angels Landing summit. We decided to rest and enjoy the views here before continuing.
Hike to Heaven
The last half mile of the trail is fun as the trail follows the ridge across a saddle. This is where things get interesting, steep, where you are grateful for the chains. The views along the way are impressive. The point at the end of the Angels Landing trail allows for unlimited views of Zion Canyon in both directions.
