The Subway In Zion

We love Zion National Park and so do many of our guests. Starting in about April going clear until November we get a large influx of guests who are staying with us and visiting Zion, Bryce Canyon and The Grand Canyon. Many of those guests are hard core hikers.

The Subway is a colloquial name for a uniquely shaped slot canyon in Zion National Park. It is located between two peaks called the North and South Guardian Angels, deep within the Left Fork of North Creek. It is part of the larger Great West Canyon system, which includes both the Left and Right Forks of North Creek.

The Subway is so named for its tube-like, undercut slot canyons. This segment of canyon is less than 0.25 miles (0.40 km) in length, but long approach and exit hikes are necessary for access.
