Yes.The road from Three rivers not the road from Grant Grove. Check the SEKI webpage for road conditions.

It's always a fee area. Same entry fee as always. The wilderness permits are self registration and free, however. People were chaining up at Hospital Rock last weekend - we helped a few people discover the rental chains wouldn't work on their cars....

Just pick up a National Parks / America the Beautiful / Whatever They're Calling It Now Pass. $80 and covers entry into all the National Parks as well as also covering the Adventure Pass Fee for the majority of sites where required in the 4 SoCal NF's
