Angel’s landing is known for deaths…not really, but people have fallen to their deaths here before. The path is once again carved into the canyon wall, but not only that, it follows a narrow ridge that goes up towards the top. Chains are there to help you and steps are even carved in. If you want a quick, yet exciting hike, this is it.

The views are amazing, not as good as observation point, but you still see quite a bit as you sit in front of the “Great White Throne”
