USA Tunnel Log

From the park website (second link below): “Soon after the Moro Rock / Crescent Meadow Road was completed, a giant sequoia fell, blocking the roadway. The tree was too large to move, so workers carved a tunnel through it. Since 1935, people have been driving through Tunnel Log. Now you can join in on the novelty of driving through a fallen Sequoia. Tunnel Log is located just 0.5 mile (0.8 km) past Moro Rock. Vehicles taller than 8 feet (2.4 m) can use a bypass.”

Photography Tips

This is not a particularly beautiful spot, especially considering the magnificent and vertical Giant Sequoia trees all around and nearby Moro Rock and Crescent Meadow. So, I suggest photographing Tunnel Log mostly as a curiosity to amuse your friends.

Travel Information

Tunnel Log is in the Giant Forest section of Sequoia National Park. Starting from the Giant Forest Museum, which is along the Generals Highway about four miles (6.5 km) south of Lodgepole, take the narrow spur road toward Moro Rock and Crescent Meadow. Tunnel Log spans the road between these two points, but closer to Moro Rock.

There is room for several vehicles to park so you can take a few snapshots.
