The Zumwalt Meadow Loop offers great views of the meadow, the Kings River, and the granite cliffs that surround Cedar grove. Portions of the trail are accessible to people in wheelchairs.

Great short hike, easy to do with children and on a hot day you can even swim in the river. Atleast at Thus moment, half august.

A short, easy walk that doesn't offer the magnificent views that you get if you hike further out but it is a pleasant way to spend an hour or two, watching birds or just enjoying the lush green meadow between the rock cliffs. Definitely worth stopping by if you are in the area.

Kings Canyon is one of the best NPs I've been in...simply stunning, grand walls of rock.

This trail is right in the middle of deep granite canyon walls and is an easy, serene walk along a gentle river and thru a vibrant green meadow with these majestic rock walls as the backdrop. Nothing this awesome should be that easy, but it is...your legs won't get much of a workout, but your eyes will!

Very easy fun trail. Very heavy trafficked trail thay follows the river then meadow and loops around a beautiful rock fall that includes a tunnel to go through. I would barely even consider this a hike as it was a busy flat walking path through Kong’s canyon. Must do if in the area!

A short and pleasant stroll around a peaceful meadow that offers beautiful, scenic views outside and within! My DH enjoyed sighting wildlife with his binoculars while I enjoyed meandering along with my camera taking in the sights. If only I lived here to do this on a weekly basis! :-D Since this is on the end of the road, my recommendation would be to do this first since you will have to backtrack anyway. Who knows? You may see more wildlife earlier in the day!

A great relatively flat-leveled trail. A little short but, still has a great view and river access! Also, access to additional THs nearby! Definitely recommend.

Decent amount of parking available and restroom access before TH.

With the exception of a portion of the trail that goes through granite boulders it's a very smooth and easy trail. The meadow is beautiful and the view of the mountains are amazing. You cross the river on a bridge and the river adds to the beauty of the walk
