Yosemite closes part of Tioga Road (Hwy 120) for fire support

The Tioga Road is also CA Hwy 120. It is the only east-west route through the park. Because of needed fire suppression, the road will be closed from Crane Flat to White Wolf at noon tomorrow. It may remain closed through Labor Day.

Tamarack Flat and Yosemite Creek Campgrounds, White Wolf Campground and White Wolf Lodge will remain closed.  The Tioga Road will remain open east of White Wolf to the Tioga Pass Entrance.

    Those brave firefighters. This thing looks like a real beast.

    I know this isn’t Half Dome related, but you folks seem very savy with that area of California. Any last second trip ideas for an explorer who is having to scratch Tuolumne Meadows, Mount Conness, Mono Lake, and Bodie off his adventure? I hit the road in a few hours and I’m scrambling for ideas. I do have a fascination with gold country but wouldn’t know the first place to start. Fingers crossed that the late great Huell Howser visits me in a dream tonight 🙂

      I’m not sure that there is any reason to scrap the locations you mention if you are coming to the area via highway 395.

      120, the Tioga Road, will still be open to the destinations you list,

      The eastern Sierra south of Mono Lake is pretty awesome — there’s a lot of good hiking around Mammoth and one-of-a-kind places like Devil’s Postpile National Monument.

      Mount Whitney requires permit, done by lottery earlier in the year, but there are other hikes on the east side of King’s Canyon NP.
