“my best picture of the vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

This is such a nice hike. After less than half a mile you reach an old bridge that you cross. On our way back we actually crossed the river by foot as the level was low enough and it was refreshing. A quarter of a mile after that bridge you are on wooden planks in the middle of a flowery meadow surrounded by mountains: perfect. We walked the loop but it does not bring much. Unless if like my kids you enjoy going up and down in rocks.

“Relaxing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Very quiet and peaceful trail; very easy to navigate, but if constrained for time skip for more adventurous trails.

“Lovely meadow hugged by a river surrounded by grand mountains”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Worth your time while visiting kings canyon. We just took the left fork, walked around the boardwalk until we saw the lovely decking with the benches facing each other, took 50 pictures, then left. Pretty place. Peaceful. We were rushed with time. Wish I could be there a awhile to maybe catch some wildlife in action.

“What a gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

The park ranger said it was a beautiful place and she was right. It was well worth the nearly 30 mile drive from Grant Grove Village. We walked along the trail and hardly saw a soul. The Meadow was beautiful and we saw birds and just enjoyed the scenery.

“Favorite Hike In Years”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The hike offered so much, including many different types of swimming holes from white water to calm, still pools. There were fern meadows with wild berries, and grass meadows shadowed by granite cliffs behind. The walk is very easy and visually exciting, with the climax being a swimming hole fed by a raging waterfall!! Excellent excursion which I will revisit someday!!
