  • 5star
  • A beautiful meadow even in warm winter
  • An easy stroll through the meadow offers beautiful views of the valley as well as a wide variety of wildlife, from hummingbirds to monarch butterflies. It's especially pleasant in the morning before it gets too hot and also while the wildlife may be more active as the crowds are not as large.
  • Crystal clear, mighty Merced River.
