“Key drainage fixtures along the Generals Highway in Sequoia National Park were damaged by the recent major flooding. The section of road between Hospital Rock and Giant Forest will need major repairs before it can reopen for public use. Until then, it is not possible to see giant sequoias via the Sequoia National Park entrance in Three Rivers. We will issue updates as things progress.

“Road crews will endeavor to maintain access to Grant Grove in Kings Canyon National Park over the weekend. However, we strongly advise against trying to visit the parks during an active snowstorm. Expect major inclement weather and tire chain restrictions. For the most current roads conditions, call (559) 565 3341, dial 1, and then dial 1 again.”
