Yosemite Valley, CA– This Friday at noon, Glacier Point Road in Yosemite National Park will open for the season.
According to park officials, there will be limited visitor services including no running water. Vault toilets will be available.
Travelers are urged to drive with caution while in the park as the road may still be wet due to melting snow. Wildlife may also be present on or near the road.
The Glacier Point Road is subject to unexpected and temporary closures due to unpredictable spring storms that may produce snow at the higher elevations of the park.
Due to snow, ice, and avalanche conditions, Tioga Road will remain closed with no projected opening date at this time.
