King Canyon and Sequoia National Parks Updates

As we prepare for the next round of weather, park staff are also busy assessing damage from previous storms. Significant damage has been reported outside the park along Highway 180. Based on that information, Kings Canyon National Park is expected to remain closed to public access through March.
In Sequoia National Park, staff are still assessing the unprecedented amount of damage affecting road access to the Foothills, Giant Forest, Lodgepole, and Wuksachi areas. A prolonged closure extending many weeks is expected. There is no estimated reopening date at this time for any of these areas, but we expect to provide more detailed information about the damage and storm recovery plans next week for these areas, as well as the Mineral King area. Stay tuned.
