Glacier Point Road was closed to all traffic in 2022 to rehabilitate and improve the road. The road will be open sometime after early July, 2023, with 30-minute delays.
The existing road was completed in 1936, replacing the original wagon road built in 1882. This area attracts high volumes of traffic year-round because it provides access to Bridalveil Creek Campground, Glacier Point, Badger Pass Ski Area, and numerous trailheads.
Until the road opens in 2023, there will be no facilities or services available at Glacier Point (including water or restrooms) if you choose to hike to Glacier Point. Please plan accordingly and follow the principles of Leave No Trace.
