Winter Travel Tips

As of March 22, 2016, the General's Highway (Hwy 180 between Sequoia and Grant Grove) is open without restrictions. The road to Moro Rock and Crescent Meadow is also open for the season.

During the winter, the 15-mile stretch of the Generals Highway (Highway 180) from Montecito-Sequoia Lodge to Wuksachi Lodge typically closes for the season after the first big snows. 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.
