Tioga Pass Tours

3 Reviews
Tioga Pass is the only entrance on the eastern side of Yosemite National Park. At 9,941 feet high, it is the highest point on the mountain drive and one of the most scenic in the park. Views of the surrounding forests and mountains are worth the drive alone, but if you’re after one of the park’s many hiking trails the trailheads for Gaylor Peak, Tioga Peak, and the Twenty Lake Loop are all nearby. For a less active experience, Tioga Lake offers picnic facilities and trout fishing close by.

Driving to and through the Tioga Pass is an adventure: full of tight curves and steep drop-offs. But you’ll be rewarded with some of the most beautiful views in Yosemite Valley, and once you reach the pass you’ll be in the park itself. The road through the Sierra Nevada mountain range is the highest highway pass in California.

Practical Info

You can find Tioga Pass six miles east of Tuolumne Meadows on Highway 120. Pending weather conditions, Tioga Pass does close during some parts of the year (typically November to March.) Be sure you have enough gas in your car before driving to the pass, as there is limited supply around the park.
