This was a moderate hike, but worth it if you are somewhat physically fit. The scenery is just beautiful and takes ~ 1 1/2 hrs to walk. You can walk by the upper pools and the lower pools. Make sure to have good shoes and water with you!
One way to access the Emerald Pools is across from Zion Lodge. However, we visited in February and that route was closed because of land/snow-slides. Our only choice was to hit the Kayenta Trail and then join the Upper Emerald Pools Trail. There are three pools - lower, middle and upper. Visit all three if you can -- and they... 更多

When we did the walk I saw people of all ages doing it, including families with young children. As long as your sensible the trail is safe for all. There... 更多
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

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)
nice route but nothing special upstairs. I visited lower, medium and upper pools. The trail is easy. There were also people with about 10 year old children
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
