Adventure Description

Adventure Description

Located at the end of Wolverton Road in Sequoia National Park, Wolverton Meadow is the highest winter recreation area of all the National Parks located in California. At 7,280 feet, the area receives plenty of Sierra snowfall, and it was the former home to a small ski resort that operated between 1941 and 1994. While the ski lifts are long gone, the open slopes make for great family winter sledding.

Wolverton hosts two main sledding hills: you'll find a short, user-friendly hill adjacent to the parking area that is well suited to youngsters and a longer moderate hill located a short hike across the meadow from Wolverton Lodge.  Maintained by Boy Scouts of America, the lodge is closed in winter, though heated restrooms are maintained by the Park Service throughout the winter.

In addition to sledding options, the trailhead for Heather Lake and the Pear Lake Ski Hut also begins at Wolverton.
