This hike is considered by many outdoorsmen to be Utah’s premier canyoneering experience-especially if it is done as a oneway hike from the Wildcat Canyon Trailhead. The route from Wildcat Canyon is more technical than the hike up Left Fork Creek described below, but either approach will take you to the section of canyon commonly referred to as the Subway. The canyon narrows that comprise the Subway are actually only 400 yards long, but the scenery within that short section of canyon is truly spectacular. Many of the photographic prints for sale in Southern Utah's art galleries were taken there, and if you are a landscape photographer the Subway should be high on your list of places to see.
