Yosemite NP to require reservations for entry during peak hours in high season
In a bid to reduce congestion made worse by construction projects this summer, Yosemite National Park will require reservations beginning May 20 for those hoping to enter the park between 6 a.m. and 4 p.m.
“A visit to Yosemite should be about enjoying the beautiful granite-lined landscape, not sitting in gridlock,” said Yosemite Superintendent Cicely Muldoon. “Yosemite visitors deserve a high-quality experience in this magnificent place. Our goal with the peak hours system is to ease overcrowding during the busiest times this summer while still offering access for all.”
