Contact: Public Affairs Office, 307.739.3393
Grand Teton National Park road crews will soon complete their annual spring plowing of the Moose-Wilson Road from Granite Canyon to Death Canyon and the Teton Park Road from Taggart Lake parking area to Signal Mountain Lodge. Consequently, non-motorized activities such as hiking, biking, and inline skating will be allowed starting Saturday, March 24.
Although the Teton Park Road will open to non-motorized use, visitors should be alert for park vehicles that may occasionally travel the road for administrative purposes and for snow plowing operations that continue as a result of late-season snowstorms.
The Teton Park Road and Moose-Wilson Road will open to vehicle traffic on Tuesday, May 1.
Leashed dogs are permitted on the Teton Park and Moose-Wilson roads, as well as other park roadways. Dogs are restricted to roads and turnouts-they are not permitted to travel beyond the roadbeds, or into the park's backcountry, and pets are not allowed on the multi-use pathway in the park. Owners are required to keep pets on a leash (six foot maximum length). Mutt Mitt stations are in place at the Taggart Lake parking area and pet owners are required to use waste disposal bags to pick up after their dogs.
As a reminder, entrance stations are operating and collecting fees. Fee options are as follows:
When entering the park using a pass, please be sure to bring personal identification. Bicyclists are required to stop and show a pass before proceeding through the gates, just as motorized vehicles are required to do.
Important Note: the multi-use pathway running from Dornan's to South Jenny Lake will not be open and accessible until the snow recedes naturally.
