Fire-scarred Sequoia National Park will partially reopen on Thursday after a lightning-sparked wildfire burned more than 88,000 acres, the park announced.
The reopening will be limited to day-use only in part of the Foothills area, including the Foothills Visitor Center, Tunnel rock and some trails.
Access to Giant Forest, Lodgepole and the General Sherman Tree will remain closed.
Sequoia National Park was closed after lightning on Sept. 9 ignited two fires that merged. The KNP Complex scorched nearly 88,320 acres of forest. Work to make the park safe, including removal of hazard trees, is continuing.
