Park Transitions From Winter

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Those returning from spring break trips will find that the area’s national parks have entered the between season, where roads are open to non-motorized travel. In Grand Teton National Park, the Teton Park Road between the Taggart Lake Trailhead and Signal Mountain Lodge is cleared of snow and open such recreational uses as walking, bicycling, and rollerblading. Recreationists are cautioned that snow and ice may persist on some sections of the roadway creating slick conditions. Recreationists should also be alert for park vehicles that periodically travel this roadway for administrative purposes as spring opening operations continue.  This 14-mile section of the Teton Park Road will open to public motor vehicle traffic on Wednesday, May 1st.  In Yellowstone National Park, bicyclists willing to brave the unpredictable elements of spring can ride 49 miles of park roads from the West Entrance to Mammoth Hot Springs. As conditions allow, bicycles will also be permitted from the East Entrance to the east end of Sylvan Pass, and the South Entrance to West Thumb. Cyclists will need to be self-sufficient as there are no services available at this time in the park.
