Sources are saying Tioga is ready to open this Friday (May 11) at noon, weather permitting.
No services or campgrounds will be available for a while yet.
Hikers and back country users take note: most of the trails are still covered with snow and streams are high with runoff. Over the last few years several hikers have perished during the early season fording creeks and streams.
Remember, never travel alone in the back country and leave an itinerary with someone who can send help for you if you don’t show up on time.
