I loved Angel's Landing! Great hike, IIRC, it's not all that long, but very steep, and if you don't like heights, can be a bit wooze inspiring....I would advise shoes w/ sticky rubber soles (like approach shoes) if you have them, otherwise, just a really sturdy pair of hikers w/ good traction. There were chains up there to hang onto, but the rock can get slick.

We have a friend in Mt Carmel, so when we did the hike we stayed at his place (actually camped out in his backyard!) but last time we stayed at the campground in the park, right near the South entrance, it's a nice spot, but not the prettiest campground (they were doing construction when we were there, so that may have impacted my opinion, and we had just come from Snow Canyon SP which has a great campground, and it's really pretty....)

Have fun! There are lots of hiking options in Zion, so it's hard to pick a bad one...and the guide will give you great detail on what to expect, and how experienced you need to be.

We've always stayed in the campgrounds and it seems like early morning is the best time to get started on any of the hikes. The later the day gets, the busier it seems to get, that probably goes for everywhere though.

Never done Angels Landing, not brave enough, lol. Have a great time!!
