Fall is a time of beautiful clouds, later sunrises, earlier sunsets, and quickly changing weather conditions. Here are some tips for visiting Yosemite in the fall:
1. Check the weather forecast! The weather can change dramatically throughout the day at this time of year. Even a clear, sunny morning can turn into a stormy afternoon. Checking the weather forecast often can help you be prepared.
2. Pack appropriately. The days are shorter and the weather can be unpredictable, so bring a rain jacket and a headlamp with you on your outdoor adventures.
3. Check the current conditions of roads and trails. Changes in weather can affect roads and trails here in the park. To check the current status of park roads, call 209/372-0200 (press 1 then 1).
