Yosemite on a motorcycle in April

Postby Riderman » Fri Mar 15, 2013 2:14 pm

Planning on visiting Yosemite in Mid April 19th - 21st. Driving through on a motorcycle. Wondering what roads are accessible on a motorcycle in April? Any advice appreciated.

Did you check the road closures on the website and the table listing all the opening dates for the roads that close in winter?

Of course, this year, Tioga may not open even if the snow melts by then. Glacier Point Road and Tioga Road are typically plowed and obstructions cleared before they allow traffic on them. Sequester may have delayed such activity, so it may still be May before they open.

Hetch Hetchy road is closed indefinitely due to a slide. The other roads, 120, 140, and 41, are all open, and Mariposa Grove will be open then as well.
