We did this hike in conjunction with the Big Stump Grove Loop. The Hitchcock Meadow Trail isn't signed very well, which probably accounts for the lack of hikers. Solitude and a pleasant walk in the woods are the main attractions here.

The trail itself gradually descends out of Kings Canyon National Park and into adjacent Forest Service lands in the Giant Sequoia National Monument. Hitchcock Meadow is reached in about a mile from the trailhead. Although the trail continues beyond this point, it's a good place to turn around. The trail is also designated for snowshoe and cross-county ski travel, so you'll see plenty of orange disks on trees along the route.

This was the very first Alltrails trail I have ever tried out. The trail itself was well worn and very easy to follow. The trip itself was very interesting because, along the trail, are remnants of the fire that burned in the area a couple of years ago. The meadow itself was lush and beautiful, with large stumps, a small creek, and tall grass. This trip was myself, my wife, and our 3 and 6 year old children; nobody had difficulty with this trail. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth a walk! I will be coming back here again either on a cloudy day or perhaps sunset time to get photographs when the light is less harsh.

Beautiful drive. The canyon just keeps going and going.

This was the most incredible drive I’ve ever seen. Was in awe the entire way.

One of the most beautiful scenic routes I've ever been on...No pictures will do it justice, you just have to experience it for yourself. Although I did take several pictures, most of what I have is video, and I don't think I can upload this.

Very difficult in deep snow but beautiful and rewarding

very well maitained easy/moderate trail. a little confusing to find the head.
