Parking is available at or near most trailheads, and you can park your car for the duration of your hike (unless otherwise posted).
Remove all food, drinks, toiletries, trash, and other scented items, even if they are contained in a bear canister. (Read more about food storage.)
In Yosemite Valley, parking for wilderness permit holders is available only at the trailhead parking lot just beyond Curry Village. A shuttle bus stop is nearby, and a free shuttle bus can take you to other trailheads around Yosemite Valley.
Overnight parking on the Tioga Road (and associated parking lots) and Glacier Point Road beyond Badger Pass is prohibited beginning October 15 each year until the roads reopen the following spring. No shuttle service is available (except for the Glacier Point Tour, which stops only at Glacier Point). On Tioga Road, parking is available at Tuolumne Grove (near Crane Flat) or east of Tioga Pass (outside the park).
A variety of shuttle and tour buses provide limited transportation around Yosemite.
