Yosemite Institutes Horsetail Falls Parking Reservation

The San Francisco Chronicle reports on Yosemite National Park decision to require permits for parking near Horsetail Falls. The permits are for parking only. You are still free to walk in to optimal viewing areas

For two weeks in February each year, Horsetail Falls on the east side of El Capitan glows a fiery orange at sunset. The annual event has gained such popularity among camera-toting visitors – it’s known to attract over 1,000 sightseers a year – Yosemite has instituted a new reservation system this year to quell traffic jams and pedestrian safety problems.

Those hoping to view the photogenic natural phenomenon must apply for a free, day parking permit on Eventbrite (click here). The permit grants access to parking on Northside Drive between the Yosemite Valley Lodge and El Capitan Crossover.
