Wilderness permits

Postby rvn » Tue Nov 23, 2010 3:18 pm

Hi all.

I want to hike in Yosemite from 25 till 28 in November, but i'm not sure that i will get wilderness permit in Thanksgiving day, because, as i remember, Wilderness Center (that issue permits) will be closed during this day. I can't reach them via phone or email.

Could you please advise how can i reach them till Thursday (when i will arrive in Yosemite) and get permit? Or may be i do not need to get permits?

I'll be really appreciated for any help. thanks in advance!

You should be aware that it is snowing right now, and will be storming again with a day or so of Thanksgiving... trails are going to be icy and snowy. It's going to be cold!

If you are prepared for winter camping.... you always need to get a wilderness permit in Yosemite. In winter wilderness permits are on a self registration basis at some locations, and in the valley you get them at the visitor center, which is open from 9 to 5.
