Zumwalt Meadows is just a 10 minute drive from the Cedar Grove Lodge, and located almost at the end of the long scenic drive from Grants Grove (about 45 minutes).
There are restrooms when you arrive at the parking lot, picnic tables and and information sign where you can get the trail map for $1.50 donation I believe.
The walk/hike is pretty easy. You go over a suspended little bridge and then head over to your left and follow the trail that leads you through trees and plants, and then into the meadow. Once in the meadow you can see the beautiful mountains and the picturesque view of nature, it's really gorgeous! I have to admit though, when I reached this spot, I thought this is so gorgeous- but a bit boring, haha!
Once you go around to the opposite side of the meadow though you have to walk over and through the boulders and little canyon-cave like structures and this hike got more interesting in my point of view.
I thoroughly enjoyed it and so did my kids and husband.
People have said coming here at dusk you can see bears, all we saw were deer. But for me that's perfectly fine.
Not sure I'd like to be walking through the forest at dusk with bears accompanying me!!
