Teton Park Road open for Spring
Non-motorized activities in Grand Teton National Park
March 27, 2006
The Teton Park Road in Grand Teton National Park has been plowed and is now open to non-motorized activities such as hiking, biking, and inline skating from Taggart Lake parking area to Signal Mountain. Rotary plows are still working on the Jenny Lake scenic loop portion of the inner park road. The Moose-Wilson Road has also been plowed and opened for non-motorized use.
The annual springtime opening of the Teton Park Road provides a unique and excellent opportunity to access the roadway before vehicle traffic begins for the summer. Both the Teton Park and Moose-Wilson roads will open to vehicle traffic on May 1. Pre-season fees range from $5-$50 for various park passes.
Leashed dogs are permitted on the Teton Park, Antelope Flats, and Moose-Wilson roads, as well as other park byways. Dogs are restricted to roadways and turnouts – they are not permitted to travel beyond fifty feet from roadbeds or into the park’s backcountry.
Be sure to bring personal identification when entering the park using a pass. Bicyclists are required to stop and show an entry pass before proceeding through the gates, just as vehicles are required to do. Personal checks are no longer accepted for payment at park entrance stations.
