Tioga and Glacier Point Roads Plowing Update
Tioga Road: Opened May 11.
Dates listed above are contingent upon safety of the park crews and on conditions. Any spring storms would result in road crews being diverted to keeping other roads open and may delay opening of the Tioga and/or Glacier Point Roads.
Once plowing of the Tioga Road is completed, additional work must be completed before the road can safely be opened.
The video below provides a quick overview of what the plowing operations are like on the Tioga Road.
Did You Know?
When it opened to the public on May 29, 1926, the Yosemite Museum became the first museum building in the national park system, and its educational objectives served as a model for parks nationwide. It still functions much as it was originally intended, and currently exhibits items which mainly reflect the Native occupation of Yosemite Valley and its surroundings. When in the park, you can visit with one of three cultural demonstrators who primarily staff the Museum.
