Overview

This 1.5-mile trail passes high granite walls, lush meadows, and the Kings River. Stellar scenery makes this short loop a must-do,

Need to Know

Trailhead parking is 4.5 miles (7.2 km) east of Cedar Grove Village road. Purchase a trail guide at the visitor center. Allow 1 hour.

Description

After a very short jaunt from the trailhead, you'll reach the bridge crossing the Kings River. After that, you'll make a quick loop around the Zumwalt Meadow. The trail does get a bit rocky near the southern section where it briefly climbs along the scree field, but this is very manageable. This short run is a must hit if you're going through the park.
