Is the road open to the parking lot for this trailhead? NPDS says road closed in winter. We will be coming from the west. Google maps also shows 120 closed before the trailhead.
It is open now, visited last week. We parked in the visitor parking lot and hiked down to the giant sequoias. About 3' of snow on the ground and it was gently snowing during our hike. Very quiet and peaceful. Bring hiking shoes with good traction, maybe a hiking pole. The path is snow covered and icy. Tennis shoes do not work well, these folks were having a hard time returning up the switchback trail.
