Zion Park (The Subway hike) Mar 03, 2011
The Subway is a rock formation in zion park.
It is at the end of an approx. 4 mile hike one way (about 8 miles total. It got its name because the flash floods over millions of years have actually created a tunnel/subway through a rock gourge. Permits are required and only a few are given out each day so it is best to reserve one months in advance. The hike includes a descent and obviously an ascent to get back to the start point. Besides the ascent & descent the entire hike takes place in a wash or creek/river depending on the area rainfall. Along the way you will see spectacular water cascades down several stairs of rocks and also the redish rock mountains rising high above the creek/river you are treking through.
The hike is not for beginnners and heat is a significant factor during the summer, along with flash floods that can occur year round.
