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 trail to Rancheria Falls at the Wapama Falls bridges closes during periods of high water. It is currently open. When open, the trail beyond Wapama Falls is closed to stock use (but open to foot traffic) due to a rockfall. If the bridge closes after you hike across it, you may need to return to the trailhead via a multiday hike.
  • The Half Dome cables are down for the season. The cables are typically down from Columbus Day until Memorial Day. We are planning on the Half Dome cables being up June 2, 2017 through October 10, 2017. The delay is due to snow; the cable installation may be further delayed. (A permit is required to hike to the top of Half Dome when the cables are up.)
  • Trails in the Mariposa Grove are closed due to a restoration project.
  • 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.
