One of the reviewers commented that the Emerald Pools were a big disappointment. We agree. The water flow was minimal. But once we advanced on the Kayenta trail we were really pleased at the views down canyon. Note, on the Kayenta Trail the trail makers call it The Grotto. The Grotto takes you down by the river which I think would have been a great relaxing finish. Unfortunately, it was in the 90s and we weren’t in to it at that time.
