Hiking - Angel's Landing is probably the most popular hike in Zion NP. It is highly suggested to start early in the morning to enjoy the comfort of the shade in the first section of the trail. Last section may not be suitable to all, especially those afraid of heights, and is equipped with permanent chains which provide some grab. Although not particularly challenging, this section's dangers increase with the crowds and should never be underestimated.
Despite an early start, it' was very hot on the way down and I couldn't believe somebody was going up under a scorching sun.
GPS track goes obviously crazy in sections near sheer walls.

Tips:
- Angel's Landing is a summit. therefore to be avoided if thunderstorms may be expected as lightning bolts love summits
- Start early
- Wear good-grip shoes
- Bring plenty of water
- Hat, sunscreen
