JACKSON, Wyo. — Next week, the Teton Mobility Corridor Improvements BUILD Grant Project will host a webinar to discuss the Greater Yellowstone Trail: Teton Pass Trail.

The GYT: Teton Pass Trail is a 3.5-mile shared-use pathway from Trail Creek Campground to Coal Creek. It represents the next segment in the larger Teton Pass Trail project that will ultimately connect Victor to Wilson with a separated non-motorized pathway over Teton Pass.

As part of the US DOT Millennium Trail Program, the project was initiated in 2000 to provide a safe, shared-use pathway for non-motorized travel connecting Idaho to Wyoming.

According to a press release the pathway will provide an essential connection in the regional Greater Yellowstone Trail project between West Yellowstone, Montana and Colter Bay in Grand Teton National Park.

“The future pathway will enhance non-motorized recreation on Teton Pass and improve safety for both motorized and non-motorized users,” said the release. “Providing a pathway and road crossings, so people on foot, bike, horseback, or skis are not exposed to the significant risk of fast-moving vehicles on the busy Teton Pass highway will make this stretch safer for all.”

The Zoom webinar will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 8, 2022, from 5 to 6 p.m. It will provide an opportunity for the public to learn more about the project and process. Click here to access the ZOOM link.
