"The Subway" Zion National Park, in southwest Utah, preserves the most fairytale landscape in the American Southwest, and offers some of the best day hikes to be found anywhere in the region The narrow Subway section of this hike forces hikers through a unique tunnel sculpted by the Left Fork of North Creek.

Churning water chisels the rock floor, forming shallow potholes that fill to the brim wi...th frosty water. Silhouettes dance freely on multi-colored walls where only a trickle of sun light penetrates into the curved chamber of the Subway. Falling water echoes in the nature carved tunnel where dragonflies dart, frogs laze about and shimmering emerald pools tempt cold hikers to dawdle. Before long, the promise of daylight urges an exit to the warmth of the sun waiting outside the Subway.

The canyon widens as hikers cross back and forth across the creek, making their way to the grueling uphill exit. For those that want a glimpse of the canyon, but choose to stay away from uncomfortable obstacles, explore the canyon from the bottom where thin sheets of glistening water cascade over mossy stair-step slivers of rock.
