20 Best Outdoor Vacations for Firefighters

15. Hiking to the Top of Angel’s Landing





This trail is considered one of the best in the entire national park system – and when you get to the top, you’ll be treated to a once-in-a-lifetime view of Utah’s Zion Canyons. The five-mile (roundtrip) hike should take about five hours, and is manageable for anyone in decent physical shape. The trail is chalk full of switchbacks, and you’ll gain an elevation of 1,488 feet.

If you have kids, they’ll love Walter’s Wiggles — a section of the hike with 21 breathtaking switchbacks. Pack water and some food, and eat lunch at Scout Lookout for a break and some spectacular views. Tip: The last half-mile to the summit is not for the faint of heart. If you’re afraid of heights, end your journey at Scout Lookout!
