In short...... lower and middle pools were worth the short hike to see. Upper "pool" was a disappointing scummy pond! I wouldn't waste my time on that one!
I hiked here with my best friend. It's not too difficult and along the way we saw families with small kids and also older people. It starts off paved and then gets a bit harder as you go up, but it is doable! We saw elk and their babies which was really cool. I'd definitely recommend this!
During the summer this is nothing more than a slight drip leading into a muddy pool. It really comes alive in winter when the snow has melted and it becomes a proper flow. However if you enjoy hiking or exercise its fairly good but not that far from the main visitors centre. Other trails are available that could be better... 更多
The path is paved making for a reasonably easy half-mile walk. It's a good way to burn up 1.5 hours of your time. The trail has a fair amount of shade making a mid-day hike easy. It is not very picturesque.
It took us two hours to get to all three levels, we needed water and first pool was dry, so we moved on. Very cool at the top, a bit dangerous. I read that more deaths occur here than at angels landing. Not really sure why.
We hiked Emerald Pools the same day as Michael L. who titled his review "glorified mud hole." Quite funny ... and quite true. Perhaps the pools just aren't as exciting this time of the year??? First, I had researched the easiest possible hikes in Zion and this was on the list. I recently had ACL reconstruction surgery and we had... 更多
When we were there the water was very low. This makes it less interesting. I have seen photo's with higher waters, a lot more impressive then. So in about 20 minutes you walk from the car park to the first (bottom) pool. Then another 10 minutes to the next one and another 20 to the top one. They are all... 更多
We have small children so we only made it to the first pool. I am not sure what the others are like but the first one is mostly a mud hole with a trickle of water over a ledge, not worth elbowing your way past the train of people on the way up. Do yourself a favor if you have... 更多
I went during the summer months so the pools were pretty dried up. I only hiked to the second pool which had more water but it wasn't as spectacular as the pictures I've seen. The lower pool is a nice hike where you have the chance to cool off from the running water from the rocks above. It's a short... 更多
We enjoyed the hike, but the pools were not as beautiful as we had hoped. We initially thought you could go into the pools, but it is prohibited. The hike is not too strenuous and our 8 year old had no problems.
