Snow, soggy meadows and flooded trails remain a July theme in Yosemite Wilderness. Additionally, please note:
  • Wapama bridge is damaged: repairs being done, scheduled to reopen mid July.
  • Bridges in Pate Valley and Glen Aulin (over Conness creek) are damaged with no estimated date for repair.
  • White Wolf Road is closed: must hike to trailheads from Tioga Rd. Road Access to Lake Eleanor Trailheads has reopened.
Specific trail condition reports can be read from an NPS computer at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Qc0a8mGhirE3JYw7iBnWl_dH3HwpvFeEJsgPMys1wt4/edit#gid=2.

That's weird.

White Wolf road was open last 2 weekends.

Why would they close it?

Not sure why I'm asking... some stuff just never makes any sense.
Like... why wasn't the road open earlier?

Often it seemed to me that they wanted closed if the campground and lodge weren't open. Not sure why.

Yup. Agree.

Pretty much I said to self on way by last couple weekends:

"self, they finally got smart and opened the WW gate from the get-go...
now people can park at the trailhead... that's what they should
do... why have cars parked along the road..."

Probably: "Oops! We left the gate open."

I guess I should have taken 10 minutes and drive in there...

Dunno

They were doing work up at TM on the buildings on the 4th... so... can't say...

Didn't take notice of the gate, but when we drove by on the 8th there was one of those white plastic sandwich-board sign thingies in the middle of the WW road blocking the way.

you need to have an nps "account"

"Specific trail condition reports can be read from an NPS computer "


I received this via email:
"I'm sorry but the trail conditions can only be shared with those that have an NPS network account. This is limitation of the agreement between the Department of the Interior and Google Apps."
