After walking around and taking pictures along the Virgin River, we got back on the shuttle bus. Our next stop along the Zion Canyon Scenic Drive was the Zion Lodge shuttle stop.
We decided to check out the Emerald Pools Trail. Wow! What a gorgeous trail!
To get to the trail, we crossed over this bridge which spans the Virgin River.
The bridge was the perfect spot to stop and take some pictures of the beauty around us.
I joined my family on the bridge and took pictures of the Virgin River and surrounding area too.
After picture time was done, we headed to the trail.
See that interesting wall on the trail at the end of the bridge? I decided to take a picture of it.
There are actually three Emerald Pools Trails - Upper Pool, Middle Pool, and Lower Pool.
The Upper Emerald Pools Trail is listed as a moderate hike. We decided to take the Lower Emerald Pools Trail, which is listed as an easy hike. If you'd like to see a map and descriptions of these and other trails, click HERE.
Here's part of our family along the Lower Emerald Pools Trail. As you can see, this portion of the trail is right next to the Virgin River.
The scenery along the Lower Emerald Pools Trail was just spectacular. I'll be sharing more photos from our hike in a future post.
Thanks for stopping by!
