Tioga Pass

SFGate reports that Tioga Pass, route 120 over the Sierra’s and through Yosemite, has opened for the season although many campsites along the route remain closed.

Services along the Highway 120, also known as Tioga Road in the park, and in Tuolumne Meadows will be limited. All campgrounds along the Tioga Road corridor and the Tuolumne Meadows Campground will remain closed until further notice.

This is one of four highway routes across the High Sierra that close in winter. These are the routes you generally want to avoid in a large RV at any time. Tioga is on of the tamest of these but still requires careful attention to grades and curves and good mountian driving skills.

To get over the Sierra’s, use Ca 88, US 50 or I80 unless you know the road and its risks.
