conditions in Sequoia

Does anyone have any idea what the current trail conditions are like in the Giant Forest area and/or Grant Grove? The weather forecast for next week looks great and the national park service is offering free admission April 22-26 so we're thinking about heading up that way.

I wish I did. Wuksachi would know. Any April I've been up there, the trails are still snowy (but tromped down in many places). It's been really dry, so I don't think there's been recent snow up there.

Do call Lodgepole, though. Even when the trails are snowy, they are marked (with signs on trees for cross country skiers) and we've hiked several times (sometimes up to our necks in a sudden snowdrift - not sure I recommend it entirely). But if you can find a place where snowshoers or cross country skiers and other hikes have left tracks, it's wonderful to hike while it's still snowy.

We were thinking about going up for free week, too, but I have to work. I wouldn't let the trail conditions keep me from going (guessing some trails are pretty open, especially right out of Lodgepole).
