120 is open if you are heading into the park through Groveland going to the valley. It is closed from Craneflat to Yosemite creek as you head towards Tioga Pass. To get to the meadows you have to enter from the East side.

The WEST entrance 120 from Groveland is open and you can access the valley floor.

Tioga Pass Road is closed at Crane Flat and beyond because of active fire spotting, some of which crossed the road. That edge of the fire is not entirely contained.

From Tioga Pass, you can get to Tuolumne Meadows, Tenaya, Olmstead area but no further than Yosemite Creek so east siders can't drive to the valley floor.

Hoping for this weekend.

Light smoke in Tuolumne Meadows as of 12:23pm Wednesday. Smoke was moderate on Tuesday. Rain definitely on the way today, or so it would seem.

Glad I checked this thread - hope they open 'er up in time for Facelift...coming in from 395. Would hate to have to go around.

Props to the firefighters = badass folks!

Latest RUMOR on Tioga rd opening is SLIGHT chance of this weekend, probable chance of Monday.

We'll see what happens.

Got up to TM earlier this week, had a great smoke free bike ride loving the lack of cars/people only to think of what a shame it's been all the way around particularly those business's whose life blood is the highway.

Sure hope it opens soon for their sake, we should all try and help the best we can as we move on into the fall.

Thanks for all the great information about this fire. The visuals really put things into perspective. Thank you to all the firefighters who are risking their lives to put this mess into some sort of control.

How about the 108 - is it open? Tried to find info on internet but it was confusing for my simple mind..
