Generals Highway Closed
January 07, 2017 06:35PM
As of about 5:00pm Saturday, Jan. 7, the Generals Highway is closed past the Ash Mountain visitor center--probably due to the numerous rockfalls along the road caused by the rain. (And yes, there was a lot of rain in the Giant Forest all day...)

People who need to travel along the road will be caravaned in.

SEQUOIA AND KINGS CANYON NATIONAL PARKS, Calif. January 7, 2016– The Generals Highway is now closed at the Foothills Visitor Center in Sequoia National Park due to rock slides and flooding until further notice. This storm is forecast to continue through Monday evening.

Visitors will not be able to access the giant sequoias (aka big trees), Potwisha Campground, Giant Forest Museum, and Lodgepole areas. Guests with reservations to Wuksachi Lodge are encouraged to call them at this time: http://www.visitsequoia.com/Wuksachi/Lodging. Visitors are able to exit the park at this time.
