It just got a lot harder to visit Yosemite National Park. The Tioga Road, along with the Glacier Point Road, closed for the winter on Tuesday.
The park notes that "these roads close each fall and remain closed throughout the winter months until weather conditions permit reopening in the spring next year."
Just the same, Yosemite is open year-round with snow removal on all other roads within the park. All roads within the park are subject to chain control or temporary closures due to hazardous driving conditions. All motorists are required to carry tire chains while driving in the park during the winter months.
