Teton Park Road open to non-motorized use

MOOSE, WY — Cyclists, bladers, and pedestrians rejoice! The Teton Park Road between the Taggart Lake Trailhead and Signal Mountain Lodge is cleared of snow and officially open to non-motorized recreation.

Yellowstone National Park also announced today that it’s preparing to open sections of road to cyclists on March 29.

GTNP recreationists are cautioned that snow and ice may persist on some sections of the roadway creating slick conditions. Recreationists should also be alert for park vehicles that periodically travel this roadway for administrative purposes as spring opening operations continue. 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.

Several portable restrooms are temporarily located along the road for recreationists. Dogs are permitted on the Teton Park Road. 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.

Electric bicycles are not allowed on the Teton Park Road when it is closed to motorized use.

This 14-mile section of the Teton Park Road will open to public motor vehicle traffic on Wednesday, May 1, 2019.

The paved multi-use pathways in the park are open whenever they are predominately free of snow and ice.

The Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose will open Monday, April 1. It will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Moose-Wilson Road, Antelope Flats Road and Signal Mountain Summit Road remain closed to vehicle use.

All park visitors should respect road closures and look for signs posted near the road regarding any recreational use or access.  For information on park roads call 307.739.3682 or visit https://www.nps.gov/grte/planyourvisit/roads.htm.
