Yosemite National Park Announces Glacier Point and Tioga Roads are Closed for the Season

Yosemite National Park announces Glacier Point and Tioga Roads are closed to all vehicular traffic for the winter season. Glacier Point and Tioga Roads typically close each fall and remain closed through the winter season. These roads reopen each spring when weather and road conditions are safe for vehicular traffic.

The closure of Tioga road ends the eastern access to Yosemite National Park for vehicles each season, requiring travelers from the east to go over or around the Sierra to access Yosemite national park from the West.

Yosemite National Park is open year-round with snow removal on all other roads within the park. All motorists are required to carry tire chains in their vehicles while driving in the park during the winter months, even if their car is equipped with four-wheel drive. Temporary road closures may go into effect at any time due to road and weather conditions.

For updated 24-hour road and weather conditions for Yosemite National Park, please call 209-372-0200 and press 1. Updated information is also available on the park’s website at www.nps.gov/yose.
