Winter Travel Advisory
The 15-mile stretch of the Generals Highway (Highway 180) from Montecito-Sequoia Lodge to Wuksachi Lodge is closed for the season. Winter access to Wuksachi Lodge and the Giants Forest is via Highway 198 only as shown on the winter access map. Access to John Muir Lodge is via Highway 180 only.
For the latest Road Conditions update recording, call (559) 565-3134, then 1 & then 1 again when prompted. For additional information, see the National Park Service winter driving page as well as their video about using snow chains and cables.
We recommend that you practice putting your chains on in daylight before you need them. For Wuksachi Lodge guests, we also recommend that you plan your trip to arrive at least as far as the Giants Forest during daylight hours when winter driving conditions exist.
The Majestic Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks
Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks in California will expand your perspective, renew your spirit and challenge your sense of wonder. Like the sky-piercing trees that grow only here, Sequoia and Kings Canyon’s scale is ancient and epic. This is dynamic, full-screen Sierra recreation, on a level that field guides and trail maps only begin to reveal.
Come to this wild corner of the California Sierra and rekindle your connection with nature, under the General Grant and General Sherman Tree, along rocky banks of the Kings River, inside serpentine crystal caverns, below a roaring waterfall, or above timberline on a talus trail.
Infinity-edge vista points reveal the scenic splendor of these adjacent national parks. They also come with an open invitation to leave the pavement behind and engage them. Campgrounds, picnic tables, and hiking trails cover Sequoia and Kings Canyon parks. This is more than a dashboard travel destination. Rather, one for kicking up some gritty Sierra sand, wading into cool swimming holes, casting fishing lines, snowshoeing by giant red trees, sharing campfires, and chasing shooting stars.Google+
