Description

Strenuous hike through Zion to the South Guardian Angel peak in the Zion back country. Trailhead is accessed by a road from Virgin Utah. The trail drops down into a valley from the parking area before it ascends up towards South Guardian Angel. The trail is approximately 11.8 miles and could take an entire day depending on the experience of the hike. There is one point to refill water from the river but it needs to be filtered. There are points descending into and ascending out of the valley that require some difficult scrambling and some people might prefer bringing ropes. There is some light scrambling and exposure near the peak.
