SEQUOIA NATIONAL FOREST, California (KSEE/KGPE) – As the partial closure of the Sequoia National Forest continues, the U.S. Forest Service says some areas will remain open to the public – but not all services will be in operation.

Some trails, trailheads, and boat launches are open, but all of the developed recreation sites remain closed. No trash removal is being offered and all toilet facilities are closed as well.

Visitors are also asked to avoid all high-risk activities, as law enforcement and search and rescue may be limited, and if an area is crowded then search for a less occupied location.
