Winter is Coming!

In Road Conditions, Weather

The Tioga and Glacier Point Roads in Yosemite National Park will close to all vehicles starting Tuesday, November 20, 2018 due to inclement weather expected over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The roads will reopen if weather and road conditions permit.

Yosemite National Park is open year-round with snow removal on all other roads within the park. Highway 120 West, Highway 140, and Highway 41 remain open year-round and provide access to Yosemite Valley. The Hetch Hetchy Road is open for day use throughout the winter months.

All roads within the park are subject to chain control or temporary closures due to hazardous driving conditions. All motorists are required to carry tire chains, even if their car is equipped with four-wheel drive, while driving in the park during the winter months.
For updated 24-hour road and weather conditions for Yosemite National Park, please call 209-372-0200.
