Zumwalt Meadow provides visitors with a scenic contrast to the powerful rock formations deep in the heart of the canyon. Glorious and lush in spring, and splendid in summer and fall, Zumwalt Meadow is a spectacular alpine setting.
A scenic, 1.5-mile self-guided trail circles the area and offers magnificent views of high granite walls, verdant meadows, and free-flowing Kings River. With its flat, gentle trails, the meadow is great for kids—and makes an ideal introduction to the park. Many rangers say this is the best (and most popular) day hike in the Cedar Grove area. Parking for Kings Canyon's Zumwalt Meadow is available four miles east of the Cedar Grove Village turn off.
