Zion National Park Accommodations, Hotels, Vacation Rentals & Lodging

Water from Heaps Canyon, originating ten miles away in the further reaches of Zion, takes a 150 meter fall in the upper Emerald Pool. From there the stream drops about 350 feet to two other pools until is reaches the Virgin River. The round trip trail from the Zion Lodge to all the pools is about 3 miles and takes about two hours. Springtime has the best waterfalls and the summer stream bed is usually dry. Slide show by John Wanserski.

    Thanks for sharing a glimpse into this area of the park. I just visited for the second time a week ago and am always blown away. I haven't explored many of the trails though…I'll have to do that sometime on a trip without my dog!

    @sinsumama Isn't it amazing, we were there over the weekend of 4/8/11 it snowed, but was still breathtaking if a little too cold for me… lol. but the 3rd day the sun was out and it was terrific. Now I want to go back and be able to hike the Narrows. The river was to high so they wouldn't let anyone. Smart of course.:)
