McGurk Meadow & Bridalveil Creek is a moderate kid friendly day hike in Yosemite National Park. The park says "the trail leads downhill 0.8 miles to McGurk Meadow and the site of an old cabin that belonged to John McGurk. One mile (1.6 km) beyond the cabin are trails west to Dewey Point and east to Bridalveil Creek. During July, the meadows in this area are a great place to see wildflowers." There is camping available in Yosemite National Park.
