    The first part of this video shows parts of Zion that have absolutely nothing to do with the Subway hike. I believe a lot of that footage came from the east side of the park, before you even get to the tunnels. The video shows none of the difficult parts of the journey, such as the the descent and return ascent down and up the canyon wall. That was some of the most difficult hiking I have ever done. Next, you need to know that when you get to the river, your path is often blocked by boulders that have rolled down the canyon. Yes, the Subway is beautiful, but it is not for the faint of heart. This is more "canyoneering" than hiking. I wish you all luck.

    Hey! I'm a producer for INSIDER Travel and I'm working on a video about this place. Would love to feature you on it. Would you be OK with us using your video? We would give you onscreen credit of course! Please let me know. Thank you!

    Thanks for the footage, but the music was not fitting. I turned down the volume, but that took away from it as well. It would have been great, had you just let the natural sounds recorded play.

    I noticed you guys started from the top with no rappelling equipment. Is that possible? I believe to really enjoy the Subway you have to start from the top. But I've been told that's not possible if you don't have any rappelling equipment nor experience. Can you give some advice on how to hike it like you guys did?

    When I think about hiking, I think about memories of my Dad and taking the time to feel the cool air and enjoy the calm, beautiful scenery. The soundtrack on this video pretty much shot that for me.

    The Most Beautiful Hike in the World + Worlds Worst Song Choice = Video WAY below its potential. I still enjoyed the video, and laughed when the dude was chilling in the relaxing (most likely COLD) waterfall at the end, but 'Beautiful' and 'rock' rarely go well. Thanks for sharing though!
