Trails and Wilderness

Trails in Yosemite may be closed when there are hidden hazards or when they are impassable due to rock fall, snow, ice, or fire. Open trails aren't necessarily free of hazards--by entering the wilderness, you assume responsibility for your safety and must use good judgment. Trails not listed below are open, but may be snowy and very difficult to find from about November through May/June (and may have other hazards).

  • The following area has reopened following a fire, but hikers should use caution in these areas: all trails between the north rim of Yosemite Valley and the Tioga Road, east of Yosemite Creek to Olmsted Point. .
  • The trail to Rancheria Falls is open to foot traffic (but not stock) beyond Wapama Fall (due to a rockfall).
  • The Half Dome cables are up for the season. (A permit is required to hike to the top of Half Dome when the cables are up.)
  • No other trails are closed.
Climbing closures are in effect on several routes each year from March 1 through July 15 to protect peregrine falcons.
