If you come to the park, you may need tire chains.
Snow at Grant Grove snowplay areas is patchy, especially on south-facing slopes. If you venture out on trails, plan to hike instead of snowshoeing.
At Giant Forest and Wolverton, snow from recent storms is melting with this week's warmer temperatures. Snow will become patchy and there may not be enough for sledding. Melting or icy conditions may make sledding unsafe. There are many sledding injuries here each year.
A road construction project between the Sequoia park entrance and the Giant Forest is underway. There are delays and vehicle length limits. The schedule changes frequently depending on weather conditions. If your vehicle is longer than 22 feet, it is prohibited on the Generals Highway between Hospital Rock Picnic Area and Giant Forest Museum during the construction project. Consider using the northern entrance to Kings Canyon National Park on Highway 180 instead of the southern entrance to Sequoia National Park on Highway 198.
If you travel here, check forecasts before you come, and drive safely! If you plan to hike in park wilderness, check trail conditions before your trip.
Weather is cool and wet in the Foothills, and it's a great time to hike.
Highway 180 to Cedar Grove and Cedar Grove Visitor Center are closed for the season.
