The Grand Teton Pathway
Bike, walk, and ride at the base of the Tetons on the Grand Teton Pathway. Explore the park at your own speed while experienceing the grandeur of the Tetons. Travel through the vast sagebrush steppe and feel the exhilaration of the elements.
The pathway extends from the town of Jackson, north to Antelope Flats Road. At Moose Junction the pathway follows the Teton Park Road to Jenny Lake. There are six hubs along the route with parking and bike racks at Gros Ventre Roundabout, Blacktail Butte, Dornans, Moose, Taggart Lake, and Jenny Lake.
- The section of pathway through Grand Teton National Park opens seasonally after snow has melted from the pathway surface and park maintenance workers have swept it. The section of the pathway along the National Elk Refuge from Jackson to Gros Ventre Road is closed from November 1 to April 30 due to elk migration.
- The Grand Teton Pathway is part of an extensive pathway system through the town of Jackson extending into Teton County. Please visit the Teton County website for maps of the pathway system.
- Persons with physical disabilities may use other forms of electric and battery operated transportation.
- The pathway is closed from dusk to dawn for wildlife and public safety.
- Pets are not permitted on the park pathway. Guide dogs used for the sole purpose of aiding a person with physical disability may travel on the pathway. Ask at a visitor center for suggestions on where to exercise your pet or visit the pets page for a brochure with recommendations and regulations for pets.
Biking is allowed on all paved roads in Grand Teton as well as the Two Ocean Lake Road and Grassy Lake Road (both gravel).
The Teton Park Road is closed to vehicles between the Taggart Lake Trailhead and Signal Mountain from November 1-May 1. This section is open to biking when the road is clear of snow but is not plowed during the winter months. The road re-opens to bikes usually by April 1.
Some roads in the park have only a very narrow shoulder, or lack one altogether. Extreme caution must be used. Ride with the direction of traffic, in a single file line. Be alert for vehicles, wildlife, and other cyclists. See the map below for suggested routes. Be sure to follow park guidelines when biking in the park.
Biking is not allowed on hiking trails in Grand Teton. For mountain biking opportunities, travel into the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Ask for information about area trails at a bike shop.
