WINTER DRIVING in the Sierra National Forest, may require tire chains & cables - Be prepared for rapidly changing conditions: Chain control is in effect in the Sierra National Forest when roads are snowy and slippery, which may be any time, usually November through April. State law requires ALL vehicles (including 4-wheel/all-wheel drive) to carry tire chains or cables when entering chain-control areas (CA Vehicle Code, Section 605, Sections 27450-27503).  To find more information on current road conditions and chain requirements please follow this link to Caltrans Quick Map
