I'm a day hiker, a girly girl to a fault, the type of girl who does her makeup before hiking, and I enjoyed this trail. Zumwalt Meadows is located in the heart of the canyon and truly makes you feel one with nature. A bathroom...More

We really loved this trail. It has incredible scenery for very little effort! The entire trail is about 1.5 miles long and is flat except for a short section around the far side of the meadow, but the uphill bit is short and not terribly...More

We wanted a fairly short hike and this was just right. It goes around the meadow. Some reviews have mentioned walking in the meadow, but when we went - 5/1/17, it was basically a bog. So much snowmelt that there is no way you could...More

We visited on a perfect autumn day out of season and enjoyed one of the best walks since having my new hip. Truly a beautiful and peaceful natural environment. Lots of birds to watch.

i didn't have any expectations going it. it took me by surprise. we did a whole loop and the view was breathtaking. mostly easy walk but there is a part where you have to climb up some boulders.
