Yosemite, Ca — This Friday at noon, Tioga Rd. (Tioga Pass) will open for the season.
Yosemite National Park officials say that hikers and backcountry users should be aware that many of the trails are still covered with snow which could make route finding difficult. Additionally, hikers should be prepared for high water, which may make stream crossings difficult or impossible.
All campgrounds along the Tioga Rd. corridor (including White Wolf, Tamarack Flat, Yosemite Creek, and Porcupine Flat) and the Tuolumne Meadows Campground will remain closed until further notice.
