Note: Our most difficult ADA limitation is the nearly 20 feet of snow we average each winter. Our staff does an excellent job with snow removal, but sometimes it isn’t possible to keep the walkways and parking lots clear during storms and may take a day or two after a storm before all ADA parking, walkways to and from buildings, etc., are clear enough for use by those in a wheelchair or with other special needs. Our staff is always ready and happy to assist and attempt to overcome these obstacles as needed. Generally, ADA accessibility is better from May until early November than in the snowy months. Many paved trails set aside for ADA accessibility within the park and the giant sequoia groves are not accessible during the snowy months.
