Highway 120 reopens

Highway 120, the Tuolumne County route to Yosemite National Park, reopened at noon on Friday. No opening date has been announced for Yosemite's Tioga Road, however.

Visitors now have full access to Yosemite Valley via Highway 120. However, due to continued fire activity in the area stopping along the roadway is strictly prohibited.  The public is advised to use extreme caution as firefighting activities continue in this area. 

Cherry Lake Road, Evergreen Road, Old Yosemite Road, Harden Flat and all other secondary roads and trailheads off of SR-120 remain closed.  

SR-120 (Tioga Road) remains closed from Crane Flat to White Wolf within Yosemite National Park.  Park visitors can access the Toulumne Meadows area from SR-395 via the parks east entrance at Tioga Pass.
