Review of Kayenta Trail

Still aching from hiking the Observation trail the day before, we decided a more level smaller hike would be nice and the Kayenta trail fitted the bill and did not disappoint with its fabulous views of the river and surrounding valley formations. Fairly level and easy hike.

This trail is an easy hike up and down to the Emerald Pools. You can take your time. The views are worthwhile and it is a good morning hike. I would not recommend it for anyone with heart or lung problems. The description by the National Park Service is accurate.

trail is best taken as an alternative to repeating the path down from lwoer Emeralds Pool. Ends at the Grotto, form which one can either cross the bridge or head toward Angel's Island.

I thought this trail would just be a connector type trail from the Grotto to the Emerald Pools, but this trail is nice on its own merit. We began at the Grotto where you can go to either Angel's Landing or to the Emerald Pools. This was a nice scenic stroll to the pools with lots of great views of the valley and Virgin river and lots of plant life along the way. I usually don't get very excited about flowers or plant life but some of the cactus and flowers along the way were quite beautiful. If you're doing the pools, start here at the Grotto stop, hike the one mile or so Kayenta, hit the pools and then end up back at the lodge. Easy walk, very scenic and the no back tracking.
