Walter’s Wiggles

Named after Zion National Park’s superintendent, Walter Ruesch, these switchbacks were constructed in 1926. These series of 21 switchbacks lead to the diabolical Angel’s Landing trail but you better be in decent shape to conquer both.

Walter’s Wiggles are part of the West Rim Trail at Zion National Park, Utah

  4. We did climb this one but didn`t go to the tip of Angel’s Landing but only did up to where the chains start. It was quite a hike…(Suzanne)
