If you visit this area in winter and trails are snowy, the only trail that is plowed regularly is a short stretch near the General Sherman Tree. While walking watch out for icy and snowy spots on the trail.
Wherever you go, be safe!
Walkers and snowshoers: Avoid walking in ski tracks. It makes them dangerous for skiers.
Watch for wildlife tracks in the snow. Bear, deer, mountain lions, martens, weasels, coyotes, and squirrels may be active all winter.
Get to know the snow forest: This forest was designed for snow. Most trees are cone-shaped, minimizing the amount of snow that catches on them. The branches are flexible, so that they bend to dump what snow does stick when it get too heavy.
