Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks Storm Update

More weather is upon us! The current storm system is predicted to last through the rest of the week. Great news for the snowpack, but unfortunately it means that we have had to close the Generals Highway above Hospital Rock in Sequoia National Park, and south of the Highway 180 intersection in Kings Canyon National Park.
We strongly advise against traveling in the parks during an active storm. When snow is falling or has recently fallen, definitely carry tire chains or cables – all vehicles are required to have a set in chain control zones, even those with 4WD and AWD. Better to have them and ultimately not need to install them than to be turned around at the entrance station!
For the most current roads conditions, call 559-565-3341, dial 1, and then dial 1 again.
