Grand Teton National Park in partnership with the Grand Teton National Park Foundation are working to improve sections of the Teton Crest Trail. There will be intermittent 30-minute closures on a section of the trail near the summit of Paintbrush Divide between July 22nd and 27th and August 5th through the 10th.
Visitors planning on hiking over Paintbrush Divide during these dates should expect delays in both directions. The Teton Crest Trail is a 45-mile-long trail through the high country of the Teton Range. Sections of the trail were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps dating back to 1934, and despite constant use, much of the trail has remained largely untouched by park maintenance crews since then.
