Yosemite Closed Indefinitely as Ferguson Fire Nears 120

In Fire

Highway 120 and the Big Oak Flat entrance are now closed due to the Ferguson Fire. Only the Tioga Pass entrance is open to a limited section of the park. The fire has also jumped Highway 41 and is burning above and around the Glacier Point Road and continues to burn south along Highway 41 near Wawona and east of Mariposa near Chowchilla Mountain and Highway 49.

NPS: Due to increased fire activity in the areas adjacent to and on Yosemite National Park, park administrators and fire managers have made the decision to extend the current park closures indefinitely. Fire managers are continuously assessing conditions in the area and will work directly with and will immediately advise park managers as conditions change and it becomes safe to reopen.
