Walking in/near Yosemite & Seqouia/Kings Canyon during closures

Jump to last reply

My father and I are flying over to California from the UK as a once in a lifetime father son trip (to celebrate his two years all clear of kidney, bowel and liver cancer) but the park closures have thrown our trip plans into disarray.
Were booked in to stay at Three Rivers, Yosemite Gateway and Curry village with the intention of spending a week or so walking (from the 12th-19th). It looks asthough we're going to have to spend atleast some of the time elsewhere but I've got a question.
I gather the parks are technically closed and gates have been closed, but the 120 and 180 routes/roads pass within or near the parks. Is it possible to do any walking in that area before the gates or nearby? Even just short walks!

Thanks
