If you're coming to stay in Zion and are looking for something to do, then might we suggest hiking the Subway? The Subway in Zion National Park is one of the best and most popular hikes you'll find anywhere. It's consistently highlighted in the national press and the local press as an exciting and stunningly beautiful hike. After you watch this video you'll understand why.
We've been able to hike it a number of times and can't wait to do it again. The approach coming down the mountain can be jarring, but stunning as you descend down the hill until reaching the canyon floor. Here you'll be for a few hours as you wander through some of natures finest handiwork.
You will get wet! No matter what time of year you go, you will be swimming at least for a small part of it. But that is in our opinion part of what makes the Subway such an adventure. You have to figure out the best way to circumvent the canyon, to beat it if you will.
When you come around the corner and see for the first time the actual subway part of the hike with it's beautiful pot holes, you'll be amazed, simply amazed at what time and water can produce.
The Subway is truly a marvelous hike to do, one filled with excitement and adventure, and unbelievable beauty. So when you're looking for Zion lodging, and things to do in Zion, look no further than the Subway and Driftwood Lodge.
