Yosemite, CA — Yosemite officials say the Half Dome Cables will reopen on Saturday.
Access to the popular attraction has been blocked off since Sunday due to the Meadow Fire. The blaze is now 4,906 acres and 23% contained. Over 550 firefighters are assigned to the incident, including crews from both the National Park Service and the U.S. Forest Service.
The trail to Half Dome, via Little Yosemite Valley, is open to day-use only. No overnight camping is allowed in areas impacted by the fire. This includes Little Yosemite Valley, Sunrise High Sierra Camp, Echo Valley and Clouds Rest.
