The paved multi-use pathways in the park are open whenever they are predominately free of snow and ice. Use of the pathway in the park is prohibited from ½ hour after sunset to ½ hour before sunrise. Pets are not permitted on the pathway.

This 14-mile section of the Teton Park Road will open to public motor vehicle traffic on Saturday, May 1, 2021.

The park urges users to be cautious, as 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.

The Moose-Wilson Road, Antelope Flats Road and Signal Mountain Summit Road remain closed to vehicle use. The Craig Thomas Discovery and Visitor Center in Moose will open Saturday, May 1.
