Road Conditions on the Scenic Byway often change.  In general the Byway is closed due to snow during the winter, from November to mid June, although parts of it are accessible during this time.  It is important to check with the US Forest Service Bass Lake for road conditions before traveling on the byway.  People often get stranded because of setting out without checking road and weather conditions.

Mammoth Pool is closed for boating from May 1 - June 15 to allow for the annual migration of deer.
