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.

I wouldn't say this hike is very kid friendly, maybe older kiddos, yes. There are cliffs and with the crowds it made all of us nervous. We only made it to the 2nd pool, kids refused to go all the way up, they were afraid.

Easy hike for the family but was extremely crowded. We went on a Tuesday morning in July and were planning on going to the upper pools but the kids didn't want to deal with the crowds the rest of the way up.

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