MOOSE, Wyo. — A year ago today, the Teton Park Road between the Taggart Lake Trailhead and Signal Mountain Lodge was already open for non-motorized recreational use.

At this point, snow removal operations on the Park Road will continue and for safety reasons, the road will remain closed will rotary equipment and plows are in use. Grand Teton National Park (GTNP) recommends that winter recreationists avoid areas where snow is being blown as pieces of ice and gravel may be thrown distances.

GTNP anticipates the Park Road to be open for activities such as cycling, skating, walking, jogging and leashed dog walking in early April. The road opening is weather dependent, and the park plans to open it as soon as possible.

The Teton Park Road is expected to be open to motor vehicles May 1, depending on weather conditions.
