"The easy 1.5-mile loop around Zumwalt Meadow offers a leisurely way to become acquainted with the ecology of Kings Canyon. An inexpensive pamphlet, filled with interesting tidbits about the area’s natural history and sold at the trailhead, is a fine complement to the circuit around the meadow. The loop offers plenty of fine scenery as well, with fine views of Zumwalt Meadow, South Fork Kings River, and the geologic features of Kings Canyon, including Grand Sentinel and North Dome."

Clockwise loop, starting 0.1 mi. east of footbridge: Elevated sunny boardwalk over marsh on the west; shady forest stroll along river bank on the north, continuing on the east; slight uphill through hard scrabble and quartzite stairs on the south back to the start. Total distance ~0.5 mile. Easy, great photos. (Note: The return leg of the loop doesn't show on the topo, but there's a trail sign marking it.)

This is the first part of the "Bubbs Creek Trail" listed elsewhere. Take a longer walk and get to the bridges.
