Firewood available by permit at Sequoia National Park

About 25 cords of surplus wood at Sequoia National Park’s Mineral King area is available by permit to the public.

Firewood is available on a first-come basis until noon on Oct. 26.

Permits must be purchased in person at the Foothills Visitor Center. The cost is $10 per cord with a limit of 10 cords per family per year. Permits will expire on Oct. 26 when the road closes for the season.

The wood is from trees deemed to be potential hazards to visitors or property in the vicinity of campgrounds, buildings, and roads.
