Not as high as a climb has Angels Landing, but in my opinion has a more natural feel to it. Would recommend it if you feel like something relatively easy.

HikingGreat!

Lovely trail, beautiful views throughout! Lower pool was our favorite - you walk underneath a massive rock/waterfall to see the pool below. Highly recommend! Middle and upper pools are not too much further and also offer unique views.

Great trail! The emerald pools weren’t that excited because the water is low right now, but the trail was great and the views were spectacular. We liked going up the Kayenta trail first and coming down the Grotto side. A nice workout without being too difficult.
