Yosemite to require reservations for Horsetail Falls

To ensure crowd control at one of Yosemite’s natural wonders, the park will institute a reservation system this spring.

Visitors to Yosemite National Park will need reservations for the last three weekends of February 2024 to see Horsetail Falls.

Driving the news: The surge in visitation has led to parking issues, traffic congestion, safety concerns, and damage to natural and cultural resources.
