YOSEMITE – Yosemite National Park officials have announced that Glacier Point Road will reopen to all vehicles at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 30.
Glacier Point Road has been closed since July 19 due to fire activities associated with the Ferguson Fire, which began on July 13. Firefighters have been removing hazard trees and falling tree branches and mopping up hot spots near the road over the past two weeks.
Motorists are encouraged to drive with caution along Glacier Point Road. Dirt, rocks and other potential hazards may fall into the roadway.
Visitors are encouraged not to walk or hike into the recently burned areas, as there may be hot spots, falling trees, and other hazards in the area.
Bridalveil Creek Campground will remain closed for the season. All trails along Glacier Point Road and from Glacier Point are open.
