Description

Added by The Outbound Collective

The Zumwalt Meadow And Roaring River Falls trail is a special place accessible for all ages, with a granite cliff on one side, a grassy meadow on the other, and a crystal clear emerald river in between.

The Zumwalt Meadow and Roaring River Falls Trail is a 4.1 mile hike in Kings Canyon National Park. You feel remote, even with a road nearby. The minimal elevation change makes this a scenic hike for all skill levels. Bring bug spray and wear long sleeve hiking clothing in August, as the bugs are quite active. 

This trail is most commonly hiked from March through October, as snow in the winter often closes the access road.

Reviews

Loved this trail. Mountains, wetlands, and heck of a waterfall.

You can’t go wrong deep in the heart of Kings Canyon. Easy trail. So relaxing.
