Yosemite Announces the Long-Awaited Opening of Tioga Road

Exciting news from Yosemite National Park! Get ready, because Tioga Road, the continuation of Highway 120 through the park, will be open to vehicles starting at 8 am on Saturday, July 22.

Keep in mind that there is some damage along Tioga Road. Be prepared for one-lane sections and possible delays of up to 15 minutes just east of Olmsted Point. While there will be vault and portable toilets available, it’s important to note that there will be no access to water, no store or food service, and no fuel. So make sure to bring all the food and water you’ll need for your journey.

If you have any questions or need information, the Tuolumne Meadows Wilderness Center will be open from 8 am to 5 pm. Additionally, there will be a general information desk near the visitor center open from 9 am to 5 pm.

Now, let’s talk about the conditions up there. It’s still snowy in the higher elevations. Some meadows and trails are flooded, and there is persistent snow in shady areas as low as 8,000 feet. As you climb higher, you’ll encounter extensive and deep snow coverage above 9,000 feet. To protect the delicate vegetation, please stay on the marked trails and be ready for wet feet. It’s worth noting that the marked trails may be difficult to follow or even impassable, so it’s essential for hikers to have GPS, as well as a map and compass, and know how to use them.

As you embark on your adventure along Tioga Road, be prepared for the unique challenges posed by the current conditions. Stay safe, stay informed, and enjoy your journey through the breathtaking beauty of Yosemite National Park!
