Loved this trail. Much better than lower emerald and leads to upper emerald as well. Steady include at first but levels off with amazing views of the Canyon.

A great hike between The Grotto and the Lodge to avoid the crowds of people.

Good trail for early evening photography. Lots of great views and well lit cliff faces across the valley with good elevation for wide angle and telephoto shots. Rather than return to the Lodge via the Grotto trail, there is a much nicer path along the river just after crossing the bridge.
