*The only real limitation to an ADA individual is our nearly 20 feet of snow that we average each winter. Our staff does an excellent job with snow removal, but often times during storms it is not possible to keep the walkways and parking lots clear, and it may be a day or two after a storm before all ADA parking, walkways to and from buildings, etc., are clear enough for use by a wheelchair or other persons with special needs. Our staff is always ready and happy to assist and we have and will continue to overcome these obstacles as needed. Generally, ADA accessibility is much better from May until early November than in the snowy months. In addition, there are many paved trails especially set aside for ADA within the park and the giant sequoia groves that are not accessible during the snowy months.
