If you were hoping to see the backside of Yosemite National Park's iconic Half Dome or wanting to cross through the park to experience the majesty of the eastern Sierra, Yosemite has reopened Tioga Road (also know as Highway 120) for the 2018 season.

The road reopened 9 a.m. Monday.

Tioga Road is a seasonal road that connects the park through its east and western entrances, across the Sierra, through late spring to early fall.

Motorists be warned, there is no gasoline available along Tioga Road and the closest station is located at Crane Flat.

Pacific Crest Trail hikers looking to resupply at the Tuolumne Meadows Store will remain out of luck, as the store is still closed with no anticipated opening date. The Tuolumne Meadows Visitor Center is closed as well.

Yosemite officials would like to remind drivers to exercise caution if driving in icy or snow conditions and to always watch for hazards like falling debris.
