This 1.3 mile easy hike is highly rated, and for good reason. And the drive to get there is worth the trip if nothing else. The one thing we were not prepared for were the gnats. Hundreds, no thousands of gnats. We had Deep Woods...More

We wanted to do a short but interesting hike and after some research decided upon Zumwalt Meadow trail. Turned out to be an excellent choice. The trail is an easy 1.5 mile loop, pretty much flat all the way, and very scenic. You start (and...More
