Best hike for all ages. We went with my 7 year old daughter and with her 66 year old grandma. We had an amazing time. Our lodge was perfectly situated to go on all the hikes. Love the place
We completed the trail up to Emerald pools on our last day in the park and I'm glad we didn't make this a priority. It's beautiful but very overcrowded which takes away from the attraction and doesn't allow you to appreciate it. Again we were there relatively early and it was crowded full of people. This is one of the... 更多
I gentle but quite long uphill route brings you to the Emerald Pools, so called because of the algae that grows in them (although they didn't seem all that green when we were there)
The walk itself is nice enough but if you want amazing views there are other walks you can do. It's good for families as it's not strenuous. The hike up to the middle and upper pools is a bit more difficult with stairs and uneven surfaces. I didn't think it was really worth it the time of year I went... 更多
We went up to the Middle pools. Simple hike, some steep sections, but manageable if you do it at a comfortable pace. We liked the views and seeing the fall colours. The 'pools' were a bit underwhelming. So the cliche holds true - it's not the destination but the journey that matters.
Amazing hike, quick, easy, great for kids. Beautiful views of the valley, especially at sunset when the opposite cliffs of the valley are lit up. Each pool is different the higher you go, and the icy, hanging moss/ grasses are eerily beautiful. The frozen rocks/ white ice spectacular as well. Be careful hiking in winter, parts of the trail ice... 更多
It is a nice short hike with a neat view. Hike to the middle pools was really not worth it. Recommend visiting the Pools in the off-season - even then finding a parking spot was challenging.
First off - I visited Emerald Pools on a Friday in early November 2016. Going on Friday dramatically cut down on the crowds. I suspect that going on a Saturday would have changed the "peaceful" part of my review title. This trail provides an amazing illustration of the unique geography of Zion, which is a desert environment mixed with a... 更多
To view the emerald Pools - one will walk from .6 to 1.5 miles. The lower pool would be the .6 The path way is well kept - however; a good part of the path does not have guard rails - not an issue if you pay attention and watch your little ones. While the drop off isn't straight down... 更多
