Angels Landing is a rock formation 1208 feet above the valley floor in Zion National Park. Zion National Park is in Utah. The Walter Wiggles are very steep switch backs on the upper part of the rock/mountain. Scout's Lookout is the place where if you are too scared, too exhausted, or just aren't able to make it to the summit, that is the place where most people turn around. There are chains in the rock/mountain for you to maintain your grip. Especially on the last half mile. If you are scared of heights, I would not recommend this hike to you. Always be prepared, this is not just a walk up hike. This is a very fun hike!
