California poppies create bright splashes of golden orange on lower hillsides of the park.

Spring gradually moves up in elevation, beginning in late January or early February in the lower Foothills, and lasting until July in the High Sierra. By May, the Foothills are rapidly moving into summer. Stay out of the dangerous, cold and swift waters of the high running rivers. Deep snow makes trails in the High Sierra a challenge best left to the experienced.

The road to Cedar Grove is open from late April through mid-October, weather permitting.

The road to Mineral King is open from late May through late October, weather permitting.

Visit our Road Conditions page for actual opening/closing dates, or call: 559-565-3341 (24-hours, then press 1, 1) for the most current information.
