Tioga and Glacier Point Roads Plowing Update
Snow removal began on April 16, with plows reaching Porcupine Flat.
There is currently no estimated opening date for the Tioga Road. The road is closed to vehicles, bicycles, and pedestrians when snow removal operations are underway.
A limited portion of Tioga Road will open to bicycles only on Saturday, April 19 at 6 am and will close at sunset Sunday, April 20. The road will be open between Crane Flat and May Lake junction (or beyond, if conditions permit; road closure signs will indicate the end of the opening). Cyclists should use caution, as they may encounter debris on the road, and should not proceed beyond the road closure signs. No services or facilities will be available.
Glacier Point Road
Opened to vehicles on April 14
Factors affecting plowing operations
Once plowing of the Tioga Road is completed, additional work must be completed before the road can safely be opened.
