The Four Guardsman welcome General Highway’s motorists to the Giant Forest.

The National Park-to-Park Highway publicity tour cars parked on “Auto Log” in the Giant Forest. The fallen sequoia is now off limits to vehicles.

   “The proposed new road to the Giant Forest from the Middle Fork of the Kaweah River is our most essential improvement project . . . the old road up the Marble Fork is in a bad state of disrepair and is no longer safe for two-way traffic . . . The bad condition of the Giant Forest Road between park boundary and Three Rivers has done more to deter visitors than any other one thing.”
