Winter Driving Tips
If you’re hiring a car in Yosemite during the winter months, remember the eastern entrance to the park will be closed. The other entrances remain open all year round, but you may need snow chains for your tyres.
Exploring Yosemite National Park with a Car
There are four main entrance gates to Yosemite National Park. You’ll need to pay an entrance fee, but once you’re in the park the main sights are easy to access by road. At busy times you may have to park up and take a shuttle bus to some of the popular Yosemite Valley sights.
Use your hire car to explore some of the sights and attractions outside the park. Get a taste of Gold Rush history in Jamestown or Bodie, or head into the Sierra foothills to discover some superb local vineyards.
