Yosemite's Glacier Point Road to open Friday

May 1, 2013 

— The Glacier Point Road in Yosemite National Park will open for the season at noon Friday, officials announced Wednesday.

There will be limited visitor services available at Glacier Point. Vault toilets will be available, and there will be no running water.

There is no projected opening date for the Bridalveil Creek Campground. Visitors are urged to drive slowly and with caution, as wildlife may be present on or near the road.

Officials warn that road surfaces may be wet due to snow melt. The Tioga Road is tentatively scheduled to open for the season on May 11. For 24-hour road and weather information, call (209) 372-0200.
