Hwy 41 and Glaciar Point Road Closed 8/30

Yosemite NP:

Highway 41 is closed between Oakhurst and Yosemite. There is no access to Yosemite via Highway 41 from Fish Camp, Oakhurst, or Fresno due to the Railroad Fire that began around 1 p.m. today. From Oakhurst, use Highway 49 to Mariposa, then Highway 140 into Yosemite. Wawona can still be accessed from within the park.

Glacier Point Road is closed until further notice for visitor safety and fire operations due to the Empire Fire.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org
