JACKSON, WYO. – Grand Teton National Park road crews are completing annual spring plowing operations and the park will open Sat., March 24 for spring activities such as hiking, biking and inline skating.
Crews have been plowing the Moose-Wilson Road from Granite Canyon to Death Canyon and the Teton Park Road from Taggart Lake parking area to Signal Mountain Lodge. 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 multi-use pathway running from Dornan’s to South Jenny Lake will not be open and accessible until the snow recedes naturally.
The Teton Park Road and Moose-Wilson Road will open to public automobile traffic 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 no longer than six feet. Pet owners must clean up their animals’ waste, and may use disposal bags and receptacles at the Taggart Lake parking area.
