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.

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