  • The Foothills Area of Sequoia National Park Reopening April 14

    Zitat

    Effective Friday, April 14, public access to the foothills of Sequoia National Park will be restored following massive flooding that caused major road damage last month. Access into the Grant Grove area of Kings Canyon National Park reopened last Friday, April 7.

    The area to be reopened in Sequoia National Park extends six miles past the entrance station from Highway 198 in the town of Three Rivers, CA, to Hospital Rock. This area provides access to lower elevation trails, camping, river access, and more. Wildflowers are abundant in this area after a wet winter. There is no access to giant sequoias or snow from this area. The areas of Giant Forest, General Sherman Tree, Moro Rock, Wolverton Snowplay Area, and Wuksachi Lodge all remain closed and are not expected to open before Memorial Day.

    The Grant Grove area of Kings Canyon National Park is currently open to the public. Those who wish to visit giant sequoias, including the General Grant Tree, and play in the snow may do so here. Visitors should prepare by bringing sufficient water for their trip, snacks, a full tank of gas, tire chains or cables, and warm layers, expecting more than ten feet of snow in most areas.

  • Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Provide Updates to Estimated Reopening Dates

    Zitat

    Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, Tulare County, Caltrans, and others continue to make progress with damage assessments and repairs at a time when the public is eager to get out into their public lands and plan their summer vacations. Thanks to information provided by partner agencies we can share a couple significant updates as part of our weekly review of estimated reopening dates.

    At this time, due to severe road damage along the Highway 180 corridor between Grant Grove and Cedar Grove, Caltrans does not expect repairs to be completed before the end of the summer season. This means public access is not expected into the Cedar Grove area of Kings Canyon National Park for the 2023 summer season.

    For Mineral King in Sequoia National Park, due to severe road damage along the Mineral King Road both inside and outside the park, public access is not anticipated before mid-June. Tulare County is working on temporary repairs to three sections of road damage outside the park boundary, these repairs are expected to continue into June. As soon as we’re able, the park will assess whether construction equipment will have the necessary access to begin repairs to severely damaged sections inside the park boundary. It is still unknown what, if any, public access will be possible this summer.
