California’s national parks are expected to be busy this Thanksgiving weekend.
Those going to Sequoia and Kings Canyon should plan for their safety and enjoyment, according to park officials.
Tire chain restrictions could go into effect at any time. Also, expect longer waiting periods at entrance stations and crowded conditions in popular parking areas.
Good weather should not be relied upon, though precipitation is not predicted.
To avoid long waiting periods, it is recommended to arrive prior to 9 a.m. or after 2 p.m. and have your method of payment ready when you arrive at the gate.
Popular parking areas, such as those at the Giant Forest Museum, and both lots for the General Sherman Tree, will be crowded. Please anticipate delays and be patient.
