Yosemite Park Site Closures

Yosemite National Park reports

Beginning tomorrow, January 5, the Mist Trail and John Muir Trail between Yosemite Valley and the top of Nevada Fall will be closed. The Tuolumne and Merced Groves of Giant Sequoias will also close tomorrow. (The Mariposa Grove is closed, meaning no access to giant sequoia groves in Yosemite.) These closures are due to human waste and safety reasons.

Yosemite Ski and Snowboard area is closed this weekend during the storm. The ice rink will close for safety and maintenance reasons through January 17 (opening January 18).

Upper Pines Campground will be unstaffed this weekend, but reservations will remain valid. Visitors seeking first-come, first-served camping must follow posted guidance at both Upper Pines Campground and Camp 4 (the only two open campgrounds in Yosemite).

If visiting this weekend, be prepared for rocks, trees, ice, and snow on roads, which may result in closures, chain requirements, and/or delays. Call 209/372-0200 (then 1, 1) to check current road conditions.
