Wonderful route across Sierra Nevada when opened in summer and fall, but do not book hotels on other side until you are there, it may not be accessible...

I have been thinking about going to the Yosemite through this pass and I am sure glad I finally pulled a trigger. I drove myself and it was painful not able to fully enjoy amazingly beautiful scenery. Tenaya Lake was absolutely beautiful.

Had planned to drive out and around the park on the way to Tahoe. The Tioga pass opened 2 weeks ago, so we took it. The views were amazing - trees, meadows, lakes. So great! The road was in perfect condition. Stop along the way...More

If you are driving into Yosemite from the east, you must experience Tioga Pass! The views are amazing. It's amazing to see Half Dome from the north east while you are miles away.

This drive in from the east gate exceeded every expectation we had. Having left the Bryce Canyon 12 hours earlier in very hot summer temperature we found it unbelievable we could get out of the RV and throw ice around to each other. Very well...More

If you have just one day for Yosemite Park, I recommend to visit this place. It is not crowded like in Yosemite Valley. You stop every 5 minutes to enjoy God's creation! It is absolutely wonderful! Check if road open before the journey.

This road is opened only during specific time of the year, so be sure to check the National Park service website to plan your routes. We were lucky that the pass opened on the very day when we planned to cross, on the 29 June,...More

This is a good idea if you are looking for a nice scenic drive. It is about 1.5 hours from the entrance of the park to the end. Great stops along the way for pictures if you go all the way to the end you...More

The landscape along the Tioga Road changes constantly It's always spectacular - granite cliffs, deep valleys, forests, lakes, snowy peaks. There's just so much to see - allow at least 3 hours for the drive, from the junction of Big Oak Flat Rd with Tioga...More

On June 18,2017, we were able to drive 7 miles of Tioga road on the west side. There was a nice waterfall at the point the road was blocked. On June 24,2017, we were able to drive from US # 395 to entrance station on...More

likely it will still be open at that time...all depends on the weather..the pass is at higher elevations so I would watch the weather channel a few days before going on the trip just to be on the safe side

Hi Few people use this Q&A feature, so you won't get many replies here. The forum is more active, but it's for conversations. The NPS Mileage chart includes drive times from Yosemite Valley Visitor Center. It's linked to... More

Hi again I think it's better to have a conversation on the Yosemite forum. This seldom viewed Q&A feature is not the best option. Please post a question there and share all the information about your visit. For example... More
