We did the top down route. An amazing and challenging hike through multiple layers of nature and geology. Many of your hiking, routefinding and canyoneering skills will be tested. You have one or two rappels, climbs, swims, water crossings, slikc rock, down climbs, up climbs...More

Its just a wonder of nature and you'll be fascinated once you reached the waterfalls before the subway, and then the subway it self. Its absolutely gorgeus and magical. The sun makes the subway look really nice in the right light. The trip is hard,...More

Over the years I have ventured into the Zion Canyon National Park backcountry hiking areas more times than I can remember. Of all my outings, The Subway (Left Fork) hike is by far my favorite. This trip makes you work for it but is not...More

The hike to The Subway and The Subway itself are definitely gorgeous! I took the "bottom-up" route starting at Left Fork Trailhead. After leaving the parking lot, you'll enter the approach to the hike. However, don't let the approach fool you, because the actual hike...More

one of the most beautiful hikes I've ever been on. Enchanting falling water (tiny step cascades everywhere). We are moderately fit middle agers who are experienced hikers and we took 8 hours roundtrip at a very leisurely pace, stopping to take photos and have lunch...More

This was my second time doing this hike. This is not a technical hike, but it is not a cake walk either. The distance of 6.5 miles is deceiving because you have many stream crossings, bolder climbs and scrambles over this distance. The hike starts...More
