New Regulations Released for Yosemite Visitors
Posted Friday, March 14th 2014 @ 7am  by KFBK News

Visitors to Yosemite National Park will no longer be allowed to leave their cars along the road while exploring the Tuolumne River and surrounding meadows.

Park officials on Thursday released a plan that will create parking space off road and out of view that's safer for visitors, enhances their experience and protects nature.

The plan also removes unofficial foot trails through meadows and replaces campsites.

Kathleen Morse, a chief planner for Yosemite National Park, says the wide-reaching project has been under discussion since 2005 and will cost about $55 million.

The work will be done over the next 10 to 15 years.

In February, park officials released the Merced River plan that caps the number of visitors, adds campsites and regulates bicycle rentals.
