Zumwalt is an easy drive from Joseph. All but the last mile on well graded gravel roads. Vast vistas from the 33000 acres of grasslands. Nature Conservancy and local ranchers keep this pristine spot accessable

This is one of the natural beauties that is amazing when you consider all of the history in the area. I will say- if you are expecting to be “entertained” by more than the gorgeous landscape and occasional cow, don’t addd this to your iten. At times, the map and signs were somewhat confusing about which roads we were allowed to travel and which were not permitted. Overall, it was a nice afternoon drive.

Excellent gravel road. Very low risk to tires. Saw three vehicles on entire four hour drive. Remote, beautiful.

We visited the Zumwalt Prairie on June 15, 2019. A beautiful drive but long and the type of gravel road is said to be hard on car tires. We encountered a couple changing a tire, and, as we were driving a rental car, it made us a little concerned. We drove out 20 miles and walked Patti's Trail, which is a narrow footpath across the Prairie. Wildflowers were in bloom, beautiful, although wildflowers by nature are not real dramatic. Saw a beautiful herd of cattle there. Saw one elk on our drive out. The return trip was even better as we were facing the snow capped mountain range. Later found out we missed the best viewing which was 20 miles further out. But, with the concern not to get a flat tire, probably best. The tire store in Enterprise said almost all their business comes from trips out that road. All the same, we wouldn't have missed it and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Idaho.
