Easy trail in Zion National Park. Minor drop-offs. Paved trail leads to the Lower Emerald Pool and waterfalls. Connects to the Middle Emerald Pools Trail.

Lovely, easy hike on a great trail with unbelievable views every direction. November was the perfect month to be here.

Easy hike to dripping water forming small pools. Walked along the creek. Wear water shoes if you have them. There were tadpoles in the middle pool. Saw collared lizards and ducks. I have to say though if I were coming back to Zion, I would NOT come in July! Way too hot and crowded. We did this particular hike at 8:00 pm which helped with heat and crowds. Also saw the sunset.

Great family friendly trail. I was skeptical about it being paved (not being challenging or interesting enough). But we took our 4 year old twins and saw two deer, had amazing views of the waterfall... From a distance and up close. And we took the Grotto Trail down. Another great hike!

Very crowded, but nice paved trail with lots of great views. Beware of slick areas around the falls!

Awesome hike but I definitely recommend going up to the 3rd pool to make the trip really worthwhile!

Great trail, but if you're going to take this hike pair it with the longer trail and see all the pools up the mountain.

It's more of a baby stroller hike, and it was super crowded because of this reason. But still nice view.
