Zumwalt Meadow Trail



Spanning over 460,000 acres in central California’s Sierra Nevada Mountain region, Kings Canyon National Park, known as “Little Yosemite”, was established in 1940. The park incorporates what was once General Grant National Park, that was established in 1890 to protect the General Grant Grove and its Giant Sequoias trees.

Located in the Cedar Grove area in the eastern portion of the park, Zumwalt Meadow Trail is a partially accessible and popular family-friendly 1.5-mile trail that circles the lush meadow, leads you through shaded forest areas, and offers stunning views of high granite walls and dramatic cliffs. The late Elmo “Bud” Zumwalt, former Joint Chiefs of Staff member and Navy Admiral, was raised in Tulare, a gateway city to Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
