Yosemite Directions & Travel Info

Yosemite Valley Parking and Road Improvement Project will begin in September of 2016. In result, there will be temporary road closures associated with this project, detours will begin September 6, 2016. For more information please visit the National Park Service page. 

With a little planning, it’s easy to get to Yosemite National Park from anywhere in the world. Travelers that fly to California can rent a car in San Francisco (4 hours away) or Sacramento (3 hours away). The public roads are maintained year-round—except for the eastern entrance on Tioga Road (Highway 120 through the park). Tire chains may be required from October to April.

NOTE: Road and infrastructure repairs are underway in Yosemite and can cause delays. Call the National Park Service information line at 209.372.0200 or visit the National Park Service road conditions page for the latest updates.
