North fork hike. Detailed instructions can be obtained at the time of obtaining the wilderness permit from the visitor center at Zion national park.
The Subway hike begins at the North Fork of the Virgin river and extends over a distance of about 10 miles along and through the river in the Zion wilderness. The combination of water, red rock, moss and light result in an underground kaliedoscope. A favorite amongst landscape photographers, the hike requires a wilderness permit which can be acquired by participating in a lottery.
