in Outdoor & Recreation

SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK — Fire-scarred Sequoia National Park will partially reopen on Thursday, 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.

Sequoia National Park was closed after lightning on Sept. 9 ignited two fires that merged. The KNP Complex scorched nearly 138 square miles (357 square kilometers) of forest. Work to make the park safe, including removal of hazard trees, is continuing.
