Teton Park road open for non-motorized use

by Jackson Hole Radio News

Teton Park Road between the Taggart Lake Trailhead and Signal Mountain Lodge is now cleared of snow and open to non-motorized recreational uses such as walking, bicycling, and rollerblading. However, park officials caution that snow and ice may persist on some sections of the roadway creating slick conditions.

Recreationists should be alert for wildlife as they become more active with the warming weather now and watch for park vehicles that periodically travel this roadway for administrative purposes.

Road crews may be clearing auxiliary roads and wayside areas, and visitors are cautioned to keep a safe distance from rotary plows and other heavy equipment. Restrooms are located at the Taggart Trailhead, Cottonwood Picnic Area and Signal Mountain Lodge.

Dogs are permitted on the Teton Park Road, but dog owners are required to use a leash no longer than six feet in length and are required to clean up after their dogs. Waste disposal bag stations are located at each end of the road.

The 14-mile section of the Teton Park Road will open to public motor vehicle traffic on Saturday, May 1st.
