We elected to take the Kayenta Trail back to the Zion Lodge from the Emerald Pools. We are not experienced hikers so this was on the edge of our abilities. With decent shoes and plenty of time, we had a lot of fun. There are a few steep drops but we did well by staying on the path. We hiked... More

We completed this as a loop with the Emerald Pools and Grotto trails.This portion is a bit easier than the Emerald Pools. The views are fantastic and photo ops abound.

This is a wide, easy trail that leads from the Emerald Pools down to the Grotto parking lot, with views of the valley and the Virgin River. The only difficulty is in actually finding this trail if you are doing a loop starting from Zion Lodge. Look for a small sign that says “Grotto” between the Lower and Middle Emerald... More

Hiked the trail to upper emerald pools and down. The difficulty was in areas were there were elevation changes and the hiking surface was irregular or had a coating of sand -making surfaces slippery. We liked the lower emerald pool more than the upper pool. The lack of traction made this more difficult than our hike to scouts landing.

Took the emerald pool trail and then connected to this one. I am afraid oh heights but I was able to walk this one fine. There are a couple spots with steep drops, but I just went slow along with encouragement from my husband. Great views of the virgin River looking back. It is about a mile long and when... More

This is one of the most underrated trails in the park. The path was mainly flat and suitable for all. The views back along the river were stunning and was a perfect way to join up two shuttle stops if the weather suits.

This is a great trail, especially if you do the recommended loop with the grotto and emerald pools trails. Exceptional views without risking your life on the side of sheer drop offs.

This trail connects the Emerald Pools trail with the grotto trail, an easy to moderate walk can do a round trip from the Lodge
