The lottery tickets are part of a pilot program to help with crowding and congestion across the trail. This program was built off the successful launch of the Angels Landing Pilot Permit Program in 2022.
“Issuing permits is something we did after substantial public input, and it has been effective,” Jeff Bradybaugh, Zion National Park Superintendent, said. “In 2023, park rangers will continue recording data and enhancing the pilot program to maximize the number of people making the hike while minimizing crowding and congestion on this half-mile, perennially popular trail.”
Angels Landing is one of the most visited places in Zion National Park. In 2011, the park recorded almost 2.8 million visits and that nearly doubled in 2021 to five million visitors.
