Kings Canyon & Sequoia National Park Visitor Closure Updates 1/7/22

Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park is expected to remain closed at least through Saturday. Our team will meet this evening to track clearing progress and see if it may be possible to open at least a portion of Giant Forest on Sunday or Monday.
As always, the best way to know what is open or closed in the parks before heading up is by calling our main park line at 559-565-3341 (1,1). You can also visit our website at
If you plan on visiting Grant Grove in Kings Canyon National Park this weekend please be aware that tire chains are required and temperature highs will be in the 40s. This is the only place in the parks at the moment to see giant sequoias.
In Sequoia National Park only the first six miles beyond the entrance station are open including the Foothills Visitor Center, Tunnel Rock, and Hospital Rock. No access to giant sequoias.
We will continue to provide updates as we know more.
