Very kid friendly and easy for my jogging stroller as well! Kids loved it, fun rocks to climb on.

It is absolutely a nice easy walk. One thing I want to correct thought - Dogs are NOT allowed on the trail. It says they are allowed on leash but once you get there you'll see the sign no dogs allowed on trail. We found out the hard way and one of us had to stay with the pup

We visited during fire season in 2006 and the valley was a bit smoky. Trailhead is 4.5 miles past the Cedar Grove Village turnoff; trail is the most popular day hike in the Cedar Grove area according to Fodor's and local rangers - probably because it's flat, short and an easy 1.5 mile loop. Nice stroll after a long haul down the Kings Canyon Scenic Byway; has a cool suspension bridge over the Kings River, a scenic boardwalk skirting a marsh, a picturesque meadow, some good size boulders and views up to the ridges of the Sierras, notably Grand Sentinel and North Dome [similar to named domes in Yosemite which are "not to miss" hikes]. The meadow gave me a boxed in feeling, and I'd suggest taking a longer hike if you have time to a view (e.g. Hotel Creek trail to Cedar Grove viewpoint starting back at CG Village). As others have said, this is a great place to stretch your legs.

I've done this hike almost every year since childhood. It's been a few years now but I'm coming back this summer and I plan on going again!!! Both hikes are just gorgeous and well worth it! Especially because we always saw wildlife.

Zumwalt Meadow is as beautiful as the pictures! The latter part of the hike is much more interesting than the beginning though.

If you just want to get out of the car to stretch your legs and take in the sights, this is a great hike. Not very challenging, with a few different types of terrain and spectacular views on a sunny day when you can see the mountains and fields in full color. Pretty people-heavy, though.

Always a good chance to see a bear near Zumwalt Meadow! Usually it is close to the river, but we were there in late July and saw a bear on the other side of the meadow near the rockslide.

I am sorry Stephanie, but it is a long the south fork of the Kings River. It is an easy hike with wildflowers in the spring. There are still a few wild roses late into August. On weekends during the summer it can be quite busy. It lightens up after schools begin and Labor Day weekend is the last hoorah for a lot of people so you might find the campgrounds full.

This trail is a lollipop trail in Kings Canyon National Park near Road's End. It is an easy walk. There is a boulder strewn section which is quite cool. It goes around the meadow and is lightly travelled. The brochure provides interesting information along the way. The Kings River is nearby and offers a cool place to relax.

This trail meanders along the Roaring River. It is mostly flat and goes in and out of shade. Great views of the peaks above.
