To reach the Subway you must obtain a backcountry permit at Zion National Park to hike the strenuous 9 miles round trip. In the last half mile are several waterfalls, the crack and the subway. Totally breathtaking places to see and photograph! To catch the glow my wife and I stayed late in the afternoon and ended up hiking back for three hours in the dark with headlamps climbing over boulders, crossing through water, over and under fallen trees. The killer part is climbing up the 400 foot embankment to get out of the canyon at the end and especially in the dark.
