Winter in GTNP: Groomed trails from Taggart Lake Trailhead to Signal Mountain

MOOSE, Wyo. — The 14-mile section of the Teton Park Road between the Taggart Lake Trailhead and Signal Mountain in Grand Teton National Park will be groomed approximately three times a week dependent on snow and weather conditions. Grooming will continue until mid-March, depending on snow conditions. The road is closed to vehicles from Nov.1 to April 30.

Cross country skiing, skate skiing, walking, and snowshoeing are permitted on the groomed trails but recreationists are reminded to use the designated tracks for the appropriate uses. Dogs are only permitted in the multi-use lane. There are four lanes from Taggart Lake Trailhead to South Jenny Lake Junction. From South Jenny Lake Junction to Signal Mountain, the groomed trail is reduced to two lanes,  a multi-use ski, snowshoe, and walking lane and a skate ski lane.

All four lanes will be groomed on Tuesdays and Sundays from Taggart Lake Trailhead to South Jenny Lake Junction. On Fridays, two lanes will be groomed from Taggart Lake Trailhead to Signal Mountian. Due to the holiday season, grooming will not occur on Dec. 25 or Jan.1 but there will be additional grooming to Signal Mountain on Dec. 29 and Jan. 5.

Grooming of this area is made possible through the financial support of the Grand Teton National Park Foundation and a Federal Highway Administration Recreational Trails Program grant managed by the State of Wyoming. For grooming updates, call the park’s road information line at 307-739-3682.
