Plan Your Spring Visit
Please read important park alerts by clicking the red tab above before you come to the parks.
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.
