The Yosemite park website still says TPR will be closed AT LEAST through the weekend.

There had been a comment on FB last week about a potential opening for next weekend, Sept 21.

Need to stay tuned for it all. We might have a better idea by Wednesday. The forest service is in no hurry to open this road to traffic. They are actually logging the area and if you have any inkling what that's like you certainly don't want to be there trying to snake around logging trucks and tractors, and they don't want us looky-loo tourons in the mix.

When I think of TPR, I think of the Tioga Pass Resort. Referring to it as the Tioga Pass Road, might help head off confusion.

I'm pretty sure the forest service is not logging in Yosemite National Park.

The fire fighters have been logging to get access roads and dead timber along the fire lines. The RimFire Indicent page and some other firefighting blogs describe it.

Commercial logging? No. For firefighting, yes.

TPR (Tioga Pass Resort) is also closed for the season as of Sept 15.

Cutting down trees for firefighting is called "firefighting," not logging.

Tioga Pass closed this evening because of snow.

It will open again.

Highway 108 is also closed because of snow.

Is the road open. We are on I-5 headed that way tonight. We wanna go 120 into Yosemite Valley. Do we need to detour?

Plaidman- Highway 120 on the west side (through Groveland) into the park is open.

You will be able to access the park from I-5 as usual.

The closure of Tioga Pass won't be for long, just as soon as the snow melts off tomorrow.

I'd guess it's closed now for the rest of the winter.
I came over a week ago. Tuolumne is amazing when there are fewer than 50 people along the entire road.
