Emerald Pools Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Emerald Pools Trails are among the most popular hiking trails in the park, and justifiably so. From the valley floor, the trail crosses the Virgin River and ascends through three sets of pools. The route passes through varied habitats: riparian, desert, and cool canyon—each with its own microhabitats. Along the way, you’ll have panoramic views up and down the canyon before entering deeply set alcoves."
