Tunnel Log Tips (6)

The Tunnel Log

If you are looking for the Tunnel Tree in either Sequoia, King's Canyon or even Yosemite, you are out of luck. That poor creature who had its base tunneled through for tourism was never in fact in any of the parks but well within the general area. It fell in 1969 due obviously to weakening its base with the tunnel. It was 2100 years old and who knows how many years it lost due to this careless mercenary endeavor. There is a tunnel log in Sequoia National Park and this was carved more humanely into an already fallen sequoia that fell across a road in Crescent Meadow in 1937. The tunnel has been in use since the following year and measures 17 feet wide and 8 feet high. There is a bypass for larger vehicles.

Tunnel Rock

A small point of interest As you enter through the Ash Mountain entrance, one of the first sites you'll come across is Tunnel Rock. It's not on the map, and there's really not much to do, other than pull to the side and take a look. There's a road that still goes under the rock, but it is blocked off. Apparently, you used to be able to drive through the rock, but when the General's Highway was widened in the 1990s, there was no way to keep passage safe through the rock. So now, you can walk through it, or simply take a picture of this attraction that is no longer in use.

Tunnel Log

OK, so this is probably one of the hokier things you'll ever be able to do in a national park, but hey, when in Rome...

After Moro Rock on the way to Crescent Meadow, you'll have the opportunity to drive through this fallen giant. If your car is to big, or for some reason you get the willies, you can take the bypass around it.

Not much else to it! If you're taking pictures, please have courtesy towards others who want to get through as well...

Tunnel Log

This fallen sequoia tree on the Crescent Meadow Road is very touristy, but it's impossible to miss it while driving the road. Not much to see, but this cheesy tourist attracation ends up being a stop for almost everyone.

Tunnel log


The Sequoia Trees are so big, you can't make a decent picture of them. This is one of the pictures where you can see clearly how big they are. This fallen tree is big enough for a car to drive through .

Tunel Log: It's not a family trip to Sequoia....

...unless you pass under the tunnel log!
This is just one of those semi corny tourist photo spots within Sequoia National Park. With that said my husband was determined to find the Tunnel Log so he could be photographed driving our Jeep underneath this massive fallen Sequia tree. The tree fell in the 1930's and a hole was cut into the trunk to allows cars passage. It's a landmark of sorts and has been photographed hundreds of thousands of times throughout the years.
