The Jackson Hole Community Pathways program recently initiated a more comprehensive pathway plowing program as a two-year pilot program to complement its popular grooming program. The expanded pathway plowing program in Jackson Hole has been focused mainly around the more dense neighborhood developments and schools. Pathways that are being plowed this year include the Russ Garaman trail in town, the Paul Merritt Pathway south of town, the School pathways, the Indian Springs Pathway system, the Wilson Centennial Pathway, and the Moose-Wilson pathway on the West Bank.  Friends of Pathways officials explain that these pathways are plowed anytime the valley receives two inches of snow or more, or if there is enough accumulation over a period of smaller storms to make travel over the pathway challenging. The officials say that these plowed pathways have proven to be incredibly important for people with disabilities, especially if they are restricted from driving.  The higher level-of-service provided by the pathway plowing program has been made possible by private donations and is being conducted by the Teton County Parks & Rec department.

  • Don’t lose your vision in the woods - October 21, 2014
    I don’t have good eyes. Had I been born a hundred years ago, there would have been no help for me. Glasses can’t help me, so I’d have blind. I have to wear a special kind of contact lens, which wasn’t available in the days of Davey Crockett and Daniel Boone. But through the miracle […]
  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
