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.

It's a nice stop to take a lunch break but keep going to the upper pools to make it worth your while.

On the weekends the trail is overly crowded which ruins the experience and the beauty. If you want to enjoy this trail or even the park plan it so that you are not in the middle of the hustle and bustle. The views are breathtaking and worth the time to plan a great trip.

A beautiful winter hike with my infant. If hiking in winter, wear ice spikes. It gets slippery.

A short, easy, and very popular hike to the first of three beautiful pools. We arrived late in the afternoon at the beginning of our first trip to Zion and managed to squeeze in all three pools just before sunset. This was a nice introduction to the park. And it made for a comfortable hike on what had been a warm day in the canyon. It also helped to thin out the crowds. There was still some water descending from the middle section into the Lower Pool. It was neat passing behind the two waterfalls before beginning to make our way up to the next level.
