California's most direct and scenic all weather route to Yosemite National Park is itself a wonderful destination with many attractions that are open all year. Highway 120 winds through rolling hills dappled with heritage oaks, past picturesque small towns where Gold Rush history was made, and on into the dramatic high country with commanding views of the majestic Sierra Nevada. Open into Yosemite Valley all year, Highway 120 is the widest and most direct route into the Park from most of California.
