Tioga Road/Big Oak Flat Road

This Byway offers a spectacular passage over the Sierra Nevada. Drive through the highest automobile pass in California and experience an elevation change of over one mile. Experience glacier-carved granite peaks, pristine lakes, wildflower-covered meadows and lush evergreen forests with Giant Sequoia groves in this serene yet rugged landscape.
The maximum speed limit is 45 mph along the Byway. There are limited fueling opportunities, and there is a National Park entrance fee. To protect Yosemite's wilderness, there are quotas for overnight use. Free wilderness permits are required and are available at ranger stations and visitor centers. Be sure to read the information you receive with your permit and observe all regulations.
