You enter the park on Rte 281 which is paved and completely open.  There is a three (3) mile loop road once you enter the park that is great for riding/driving...  This is the first week the park hasn't had any snow in a long time, so should be nice.  For more information, you can call the park's main office at (828) 966-9099.  Happy riding!!

How long it takes driving from Tuolumne Meadows to El Portal through Tioga pass in Yosemite Park ?

That drive takes 2 hours at best.  It is a long, windy, two lane road, and you don't want to drive without stopping, so leave yourself the better part of a morning or afternoon to stop at the scenic spots (there are many).  4-5 hours is probably more reasonable.  

Be sure to check the current conditions of the road, since Tioga Pass is only open seasonally in the summer months.  

Before or after going through Tioga Pass, stop at the Mobil Station for food.  I know it sounds funny, but it is a famous eatery (gourmet deli and lunch specialties!).

Tioga Road in Yosemite National Park closes due to snow, usually from sometime in November through late May or early June. The road closure extends from the Tuolumne Grove, just east of Crane Flat, to Tioga Pass Entrance Station. (Highway 120, the continuation of the Tioga Road outside the park, is often closed in winter from Tioga Pass to five miles east of Lee Vining.)

The opening date varies from year to year but is usually in mid- to late May. To get a better idea, check out this list of Tioga Road opening and closing dates since 1980.

As your trip approaches, check the Tioga Road plowing update online. Updates begin April 15. Also, you can check the current status of all park roads online or by calling (209) 372-0200 (press 1 then 1) for the most up-to-date conditions.
