Biking in the Park
Biking is a popular activity in the park. The multi-use pathway opened to the public in 2009. The pathway section from the Dornans property line in Moose to South Jenny Lake has been completed and more phases are planned. The section from Jackson to Moose Junction will open summer 2012. The pathway is open seasonally after snow has melted from surface and park maintenance workers have swept it. Pathway opening dates may vary depending on the snow melt-off. The section of the pathway along the National Elk Refuge from Jackson to Gros Ventre Junction is closed from October 1 to April 30 due to elk migration.
Special regulations apply to the multi-use pathway.
Some roads in the park have only a very narrow shoulder, or lack one altogether. Extreme caution must be used. Download the biking brochure for a map of suggested routes and be sure to follow the guidelines below:
Only NON-MOTORIZED METHODS of transportation are permitted on the multi-use pathway. Persons with physical disabilities may use electric and battery operated transportation. The multi-use pathway is closed from dusk to dawn for wildlife and public safety.
Did You Know?
Did you know that the bark on Aspen trees looks green because it contains chlorophyll? Aspen bark is photosynthetic, a process that allows a plant to make energy from the sun, and helps the tree flourish during the short growing season.
