Access to the Evergreen Lodge via Highway 120 from the San Francisco Bay Area is clear and open for travel.  All roads in and around Yosemite are open, including our direct access to the park the Highway 120 West entrance and access to the Hetch Hetchy area, but subject to occasional temporary closure as needed due to changes in weather and road conditions.

For road and weather conditions in Yosemite National Park, it’s best to call them directly: 209-372-0200 and press 1, then 1 again for the most current information.

It is important to carry tire chains in your car and be prepared to use them in chain controlled areas (even if your car has four-wheel drive): chains may become mandatory at any time. Drive carefully even when there are no chain requirements, as you may encounter icy spots on mostly dry roads. 

As usual this time of year, Highway 120 access to the eastern side of Yosemite remains closed until spring.
