We did Zebra Slot and Tunnel Slot together. So you still drive down Hole in the Rock road about 10 miles until you see a parking lot just past the cattle guard.  This is the parking lot, and the trail is across the street.
The trail seemed much easier to follow for Zebra than Tunnel slot, but I still would make sure that on any Escalante hike you have an external GPS and a downloaded map and a paper map.  The walk to Zebra Slot is beautiful with lots of wave patterns and beautiful cliffs. Take a walk on the 360 path below.

When we arrived at Zebra Slot it appeared to me on my All Trails map to be just a very short slot.  It got very narrow really quickly, but I soon realized that we missed the most scenic part.  I just needed to use a little wedging and work my way through the marrow part a little higher so I could continue.  I also read that the there are times in the year that you need to swim up the canyon.  That actually might be even  easier if it was warm.

We paired this hike with Tunnel Arch.  It was also an amazing spot. You can check that hike out here when you are done.
