Teton Park Road Open For Non-Motorized Travel

Teton Park Road Bike

It took just three days for Grand Teton National Park road crews to plow open the Teton Park Road between Taggart Lake Parking area and Signal Mountain Lodge this week; and this weekend, says Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs, the road will be open to non-motorized travel.  She says that includes bicycles, rollerbladers, walkers, moms with strollers; so people are welcome to classically enjoy the Teton Park Road which is very popular at this time of year. Besides being prepared for cooler temperatures, Skaggs says those venturing up the road should be prepared for possible encounters with wildlife. She points out that there have been bears seen out – not just their tracks – and people are reminded to have their bear spray with them even when they are traveling the park road since bears are now known to occupy areas throughout the whole of Grand Teton National Park. Of course, any dogs accompanying those traveling the road need to be leashed. Additionally, Skaggs says people need to watch for occasional park vehicles that may be on the road for administrative purposes. The Teton Park Road is expected to open to vehicle traffic on Wednesday, May first.

  • A hunt with no disasters isn’t as much fun - October 24, 2014
    Not long ago, I saw a message on one of the hunting blogs I like to read. The writer wanted hunters to send in accounts of disasters they’d had in the field. I bet he got swamped with emails. Every hunter I know has had at least one calamity in the woods. If you hunt, […]

  • My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014
    Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
