Pathway Opens

pathway

Construction crews this week finished work on the 6.5-mile portion of the pathway that parallels Highway 26/89/191 from the Gros Ventre River to Moose Junction within Grand Teton National Park – completing the link from the Town of Jackson to Jenny Lake.  Spokesperson Jackie Skaggs says that this pathway segment opens to the public today.  Skaggs says pets are not allowed on any of Grand Teton’s multi-use pathways: a regulation levied to reduce potential impacts to wildlife from the presence of domestic animals. Users will only be allowed on pathways from dawn to dusk; nighttime use is not permitted.  The Highway 89 pathway actually spans two distinct federal agency lands with six miles on the National Elk Refuge and 6.5 miles in Grand Teton National Park.  A Phase III pathway segment will connect Moose Junction with the junction to Antelope Flats Road about one mile north. Design and planning for this pathway segment will take place in coming months with construction scheduled for late summer 2013 and completion in the fall of 2014.
