My wife and I were so looking forward to this short trail having done our research first. There are three stages to this walk, the first pool is 0.6 miles from the Zion Lodge Bus stop along a very mild undulating pathway. Under foot is very good and the path is well maintained. The second pool is another 0.3 mile further on but when we were there it was closed to the public. The third tier was another 0.9 miles further on and in the heat of the day it was a step too far for us.
The waterfall at the first poll was quite good but what it poured into was hardly scenic and where the emerald comes in we are not too sure. What I also found disappointing was that the first message about the second tier being closed was only at the first pool and not at the beginning of the walk - but only a small gripe. We would have still done the first walk/ I guess the waterfall would be far more spectacular after rainfall but then we were still in a desert!
However, the highlight was on the walk back when in the undergrowth we heard rustling and there were three deers. Oblivious to the humans walking no more that three feet from them as they foraged. Once we had stopped a crowd soon gathered and we stood for 15 minutes just watching nature. Wonderful.
