The Tioga and Glacier Point Roads in Yosemite are closed for the season.  These roads close each fall and remain closed throughout the winter months until weather conditions permit reopening in the spring next year.

Yosemite is open year-round with snow removal on all other roads within the park.  All roads within the park are subject to chain control or temporary closures due to hazardous driving conditions.  All motorists are required to carry tire chains while driving in the park during the winter months.

Vernal and Nevada Falls

In Yosemite Valley, dropping over 594-foot Nevada Fall and then 317-foot Vernal Fall, the Merced River creates what is known as the “Giant Staircase.” Such exemplary stair-step river morphology is characterized by a large variability in river movement and flow, from quiet pools to the dramatic drops of the waterfalls themselves.
