Thing to Do

Drive Through Tunnel Log

A truck drives through Tunnel Log, while a group of people pose for a photo above.

Soon after the Moro Rock / Crescent Meadow Road was completed, a giant sequoia fell, blocking the roadway. The tree was too large to move, so workers carved a tunnel through it. Since 1935, people have been driving through Tunnel Log. Now you can join in on the novelty of driving through a fallen Sequoia. Tunnel Log is located just 0.5 mile (0.8 km) past Moro Rock. Vehicles taller than 8 feet (2.4 m) can use a bypass.


Pets are permitted in vehicles. They are also allowed along park paved roads (such as campgrounds, picnic areas). They mush be kept on leash (no longer than 6 feet (1.8 meters) long at all times outside of vehicles.

If you exit your vehicle at Tunnel Log for a photo opportunity, please note this is a high traffic area. Mind your pet at all times and please pick up any pet waste.

Entrance fees may apply, see Fees & Passes information.

This road generally opens by the Wednesday before Memorial Day in late May and closes when it becomes impassable due to snow.
