Description

Depending upon water levels, Emerald Pools can be a true treasure of Zion National Park. If you time your visit right, and it has been a wet spring, the water cascading from the cliffside into Upper Emerald Pool and down to the Lower Emerald Pools is stunning. Rich in minerals, this life-giving water shines with an "emerald" glow.

If it has been a dry year or you're visiting the pools in late summer, skip this attraction and spend your time in other areas of the Park.

Short Hike: Follow the Emerald Pools hike description.

Very crowded. Many rude individuals trying to catch the frogs and wading in the pools. Beautiful first day in Zion though. Great warm up hike.
