We won the lottery for a permit to hike up Left Fork to “The Subway” (or the “Bottom Up”) portion of the river! Watch the video for a glimpse of what hiking The Subway looks like in Zion National Park, Utah, USA. We did this hike on September 5th, 2017.

The first thing I will say is switch the video quality to the highest size possible. 1440 or 1080p on a mobile device, or definitely 4k on your desktop. It makes all the difference.
Angel’s Landing will be the scariest hike ever if you are afraid of heights. If you are not, then it is a definite bucket list hike. It is so beautiful. It is only about 2.2 miles to the top. The views, the rock stair cases, and the impossibly growing trees are amazing.
The first mile and a half is pretty much paved trail. There are a lot of switchbacks the higher you get. Once at the top of the main trail, you will see the razorback and the beginning of the chain section. It is less than a mile to the top. There are a couple of sections where there is no chain. I tried to show as much of the trail as possible. There are some steeper sections to climb near the top. Definitely use the chains to pull yourself up. Once at the top, there are plenty of areas to rest and take some amazing photos.
If you are planning to take this hike, there are a couple of things you should bring. Gloves will make the climb much easier and will slide along the chain better. Also, bring plenty of water and snacks. There is no water on this trail. There is a bathroom just before the Chain part of the climb. Also, it can get pretty windy near the peak, so a wind breaker or jacket might be useful. Lastly, you should start as early as possible. The chain sections can get pretty busy in the summer time. You will be getting up close and personal with some strangers holding on to that chain.
Take your time, take lots of pictures, and have a great time.

So my friends and I had this trip planned for months now. You have to basically win a lottery to get a permit to hike the Subway at Zion National Park in Utah. This was about a 9.5 mile hike that took us over 10 hours to hike. It was quite a challenge but an adventure in every sense of the word. We had a repel twice and hike and swim through very cold water to arrive to our destination. When we got to the Subway we were all in awe! This was a once in a lifetime opportunity that I’m glad we got do! For info on this hike https://www.nps.gov/zion/planyourvisit/thesubway.htm

This is a continuation from the Russell Gulch video. Surprisingly the water wasn’t as icy as we thought it would be. Subway always rocks!

March 30, 2019 is when a group of 5 of us descended the famous Subway (Left Fork of North Creek) in Zion National Park.

We started at the trailhead (Wildcat) at around 8:45 (but got stuck in the snow!) There was around 15″ of snow the last week of March. All of that snow was going to be ending up in the canyon eventually…

Let’s take a look inside this uncommon water year and its effect on the canyon…

Multi-camera action going on with our Go Pros! Check it out once we put on our drysuits!

10 Tips to Hike the Zion Subway – Zion National Park, Utah

Zion National Park attracts millions of people every year. One of it’s biggest draws is the Zion Subway. I’ve had the privilege to go to the Subway a few times now, and each time I have been there, I have seen hikers that were struggling with this difficult trail. So I decided to put together this video to give 10 tips to help people prepare for the Zion Subway hike. If you are planning a trip to the Zion Subway, check out the video.

Hiking The Subway in Zion National Park.

We think the best time to hike Subway is in the Spring.

A few months earlier, I tried to obtain a permit to hike The Subway in Zion National Park, however there were none available at that time. I opted to go for the online lottery seven days before-hand and pay a five dollar (each) service fee, for both myself and Melissa. I did this at 10:01 PM the day that the lottery opened, since I knew that Utah’s time zone was already past midnight and it was 12:01 AM. I was the first one to apply for that day. You have to wait until two days before you arrive to find out if you were one of the lottery winners. They only allow 80 permits per day to hike The Subway. We were one of the lucky ones and received our confirmation that we got the Subway hiking permit. If we did not win on the online lottery, we would have driven to the Zion National Park Visitor’s Center and applied in person, early, the day before we wanted to go. They usually leave a few permits for last call.

We use the AllTrails App and always bring our InReach Explorer in case we have an emergency (for SOS purposes).

The Zion Subway – Top Down Canyoneering Route – Zion National Park

You may have seen the iconic pictures of the Zion Subway before; the canyon walls carved to create a subway shaped tube, emerald pools of water…it’s absolutely gorgeous. That section is accessed from two ways; top down and bottom up. The bottom up route is a difficult hike, but it does not include any technical sections. Top down is a different story, requiring 2~3 rappels and several canyoneering obstacle sections. Do not attempt this route if you do not have the proper gear and training.

The advantage of the top down route is it includes a lot of beautiful sections you miss coming in the other way.

I was lucky enough to win permits in the Zion lottery system for the Subway for the second time. The water had been running high all winter and spring, so it has a brownish color instead of the emerald color, but that didn’t make the canyon any less beautiful. This was my second time through and I wasn’t even finished before I knew I would be trying for permits again. Beautiful, fun and challenging, the Zion Subway should be on your list.

Stats: 11.77 miles, 6 hours, 971 ft ascent (plus or minus. Gaia is not super accurate in canyons.)

Note: I will work on a trail guide for the bottom up route. I WON’T be making one for any technical routes. I don’t have enough experience canyoneering to be giving people advice….Except to tell you that if you want to learn the sport, do your homework. Take classes and learn as much as you can before trying it. Canyoneering is an easy sport to get in over your head when you are starting out and the punishment for error is often extremely steep.
