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.

Started at Grotto Trolley Stop #6. Crossed bridge and turned left onto Kayenta Trail. Followed trail to Lower, Middle, and Upper Emerald Pools. Backtracked to Lower Pool and hiked back to the Zion Lodge, then took the Grotto Trail back to Trolley Stop #6 to end. Approx. 4.0 miles. Trail crowded with a bunch of "non-hikers" today.

Took this to the Emerald Pools Trails. The Lower pools are closed, but I would suggest this route as an alternative either way. It has some pretty views, and was a nice cool down after Observation Point. It is pretty crowded though. For more specific details, you can check out my blog: https://goo.gl/vwWQRx
