Rim Fire, Tuolumne Meadows to Donner Summit

Yosemite National Park’s website reports trail closures to the northeast of the very large Rim Fire near Groveland. The trail closure is bounded by the PCT, but the PCT itself is not closed at this time.

However, smoke from this fire is moving north along the crest, all the way past Reno and Donner Summit. Air quality coniditions have been “Unhealthy” for several days, but are quite variable as the wind patterns shift around every day.

See www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/conditions.htm for more information and a map of the trail closure.
