Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Parks Closure Updates 12/24/21

from Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Parks Closure Updates
Happy Christmas Eve from the soggy foothills of Sequoia National Park! Yesterday’s rainfall at lower elevations caused many patches of rock and debris fall onto the Generals Highway, with wet snow and ice accumulating at higher elevations. With more rain and snow expected to arrive in the coming hours, the Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park will remain closed today as well as tomorrow, December 25.
The Generals Highway remains closed above the Foothills Visitor Center (approximately one mile inside the Sequoia National Park entrance on Highway 198).
Visitors to Grant Grove in Kings Canyon National Park should be prepared for wet, snowy, and icy conditions throughout the weekend. Expect tire chain controls and that trails will be under several feet of snow. For the most updated roads conditions, call 559-565-3341
