The Teton Park Road from Taggart Lake parking area to Signal Mountain Lodge and the Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park are now free of snow and available for non-motorized activities such as hiking, biking, and inline skating. These two roads will open to vehicle traffic for the full summer season on Saturday, May 1st. The Antelope Flats Road is currently open to vehicles.
Although the Teton Park Road is open to non-motorized use, visitors should be alert for park vehicles that may occasionally travel the road for administrative purposes.
Leashed dogs are permitted on the Teton Park and Moose-Wilson roads, as well as other park roadways. Dogs are restricted to roads and turnouts—they are not permitted to travel beyond the roadbeds, or into the park’s backcountry. Owners are required to keep pets on a leash (six foot maximum length). Mutt Mitt stations are in place at the Taggart Lake parking area and pet owners are required to use waste disposal bags to pick up after their dogs.
As a reminder, entrance stations are operating and collecting fees. Fee options are as follows:
- $12 7-day permit for foot/bicycle entry into Grand Teton & Yellowstone national parks
- $20 7-day permit for motorcycle entry into Grand Teton & Yellowstone national parks
- $25 7-day permit for vehicle entry into Grand Teton & Yellowstone national parks
- $50 Grand Teton/Yellowstone Annual Pass valid for one-year entry into both parks
- $80 Interagency Annual Pass valid for one year entry to all fee areas on federal lands
When entering the park using a pass, please be sure to bring personal identification.
Bicyclists are required to stop and show an entry pass before proceeding through the gates, just as motorized vehicles are required to do.
Important Note: the multi-use pathway running from Dornan’s to South Jenny Lake will not be open for public use until the snow recedes naturally.
