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.

Simple, not so nice in summer time, water level is too low.

Very great views. the best way to hike is to start at the Kayenta trail. it's worth it. best view and it s more into the wild that the paved trail and you have a little bit less of a croud.

We did the trail over the Labor Day weekend with 9 and 5 year old. They loved it, but if you have a wild child... I would consider harnessing them :)

Loved the waterfall caused by water seeping from the rocks just before the first pool.

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.
