Is October a good time to visit Yosemite National Park?
Simply so, is October a good time to visit Yosemite?
The best time to visit Yosemite National Park with mostly pleasant temperatures and fewer crowds is either from mid-May until early-June or from late September until mid-October.
Furthermore, does it snow in Yosemite in October? The first snows of autumn are usually light and melt within a few hours or days, but by mid-November, the ground is generally cold enough for snow to accumulate, particularly at elevations above Yosemite Valley (4,000 feet). At higher elevations, snow may fall as early as September or October.
Regarding this, is Yosemite busy in October?
October in Yosemite one of the best times of year to be in the park. The number of visitors has severely decreased, so the crowds are much more manageable. Another perk to visiting this time of year is most of the trails are open, giving you hundreds and hundreds of miles of trail to choose from.
How should I dress for Yosemite in October?
Pack for your activities. Bring gear and specialty clothing for hiking, climbing, and fishing. If you are into light activity and sightseeing, a medium-weight jacket over layers will suffice. Just in case, bring a hat and gloves to ward off the night chill.
