Yosemite National Park 9h

Hm, not many of that length. Swinging Bridge loop is that long (much of it is among houses). Wawona Meadow loop is 3.5 miles/easy. Other options are longer and with elevation gain ().

They're only bear-resistant if locked correctly (which most people fail to do), and it's time consuming and intrusive for staff to have to visually inspect every bear-resistant cooler to ensure it's properly locked. (We can do this from a distance with the provided lockers.)

As you hike or climb up in elevation the views become expansive. The further you can see the more you may be able to recognize. What is your favorite place visible from this view?

Water is still running cold, high, and fast in Yosemite Valley (and in the high country, too). It's still snowy in the high country, and the road there isn't open for recreation quite yet.

As long as you're in the restricted part of the road (begins 5 miles east of Crane Flat) by 4 pm, then you can continue to Lee Vining.

That is correct. There haven't been significant problems. The road is in good condition and chains are not required.

The YARTS route on, highway 120, Tioga Road, will not begin operating until Tioga Road has fully opened, without limited access. There is currently no estimated date for the road to fully open.

Swiftwater is dynamic and unpredictable. Once in the water there is a narrow window in which to successfully rescue yourself. Ranger Jason, who jumped in the Merced River last week during swiftwater training, shares his initial impression after he gets out of the water.

Thinking about hiking the Mist Trail to Vernal Fall? Be prepared to get soaked! This is what conditions were like on the granite steps this past Wednesday, June 19th. Plan ahead for the wet conditions by packing for your comfort level to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable hike.

So many amazing trees! The average age of redwoods are 500-700 years old. Some redwoods have lived for 2,000 years and giant sequoias can live for more than 3,000 years! To contrast, the oldest living bristlecone, Methuselah, is 4,765 years old.

Some people assume since giant sequoias are the largest living trees on Earth, they must also be the oldest. They are not! The oldest living trees are bristlecone pines, Pinus longaeva. , a neighbor of Yosemite, is a great place to visit these ancient trees.

Although it is the first day of summer, beware thru-hikers, abundant snow still remains along parts of the trail through the Sierra Nevada, especially near . Our long, wet winter has left deep snow much longer into the year than usual!

Look, a black bear! A handy way to keep a safe distance from wildlife is to use the rule of thumb. Give the wildlife a thumbs-up. Close one eye to see if it's completely out of sight. If you can see any part around the edge of your thumb, you're too close! It's time to back up.

It will remain closed, except for those daily open periods (10–11 am, 3–4 pm) until further notice. So, driving from Oakhurst to Mammoth will be possible if you time it right. (The gate is about 10-minute drive east of Crane Flat.)

We don't know quite yet when it will fully open (this isn't the plan for the long-term, though).

You can enter at 10:59 and take however long it takes to get to the other end (about an hour).
