Spring Recreation in Grand Teton National Park

NPS Photo

MOOSE, Wyo. – While snow continues to periodically fall on the Tetons, Grand Teton National Park has opened the Teton Park Road between Taggart Lake Trailhead and Signal Mountain Lodge to activities such as walking, biking and skating. Visitors are now invited to recreate on approximately 14 miles of the road heading north from the Taggart Lake parking lot to Signal Mountain Lodge. For safety reasons, visitors are reminded to avoid going beyond any barricades marking closures as plowing activities on adjacent roads continue.

Please use caution, as snow and ice may persist on some sections of the road creating slick conditions. Visitors should also be alert for park vehicles and heavy equipment that travel this road as spring opening operations continue.

On nice days in April, the Teton Park Road can be busy with visitors. Use caution as you drive in this area, as children, pedestrians, cyclists, and other users share the section of the road between Taggart Lake Trailhead and Cottonwood Picnic Area with vehicles. To avoid riding in traffic with your group, use the 10-minute loading and unloading zone at Cottonwood, located just north of the Taggart parking lot. 

Visitors enjoying the Teton Park Road, should consider:

  • Entrance fees are required to enter Grand Teton National Park. Fees and passes can be paid at the Moose and Moran entrance stations, or through For park fee information, visit
  • Be watchful and cautious of wildlife, as it is common for animals to use park roads.
  • Carry bear spray, have it readily accessible and know how to use it.
  • Drivers should slow down and use caution in parking areas.
  • Be thoughtful of how music may affect others. Operating an audio device, such as a stereo, Bluetooth speaker, radio, or musical instrument in a manner which is unreasonable and impacts park users is prohibited by law.
  • Food and water are not available at the trailhead or along the road.
  • Restroom facilities are available at Taggart Lake Trailhead, Cottonwood Picnic Area, and at Signal Mountain Lodge. Portable restrooms are also located along Teton Park Road.   
  • Leave No Trace and dispose of trash in receptacles located at both ends of the road.
  • Dogs are permitted on the Teton Park Road on a leash no longer than six feet. Pet owners are required to clean up after their dogs. Waste disposal bag stations are located at both ends of the road. Bags should be deposited in trash receptacles and not left along the road.  

The paved multi-use pathway in the park will open whenever it is predominately free of snow and ice. The pathway is closed from dusk to dawn for wildlife and public safety. Pets are not permitted on the pathway.  

For information on park roads, visit The Moose-Wilson Road between the Granite Canyon Trailhead parking lot and the turn off to Death Canyon is closed to vehicles until it melts free of snow.

Trip Report: Wilson Centennial Skier Tracked

While grooming has ended for the season on the Wilson Centennial trail we received the following trip report: “Sunny Friday midmorning.  If you want a short, easy classic trail, the skier-groomed track between the Stilson lot and the school is still in very good shape.” -JW

“Get out and Get Moving..!” Guide to Winter Happiness

Unsurprisingly, so many of us are here in the Jackson Hole region because we are delighted in this place. Whether you’ve been here for 20+ years, a transplant resident of 5 years, a part-timer, or passing through to visit, the same energy of this place pulls us in. 

However half of the year is cold, gray, and snowy which can take a toll on our mental health (hello, seasonal affective disorder). Fear not! There are tricks to help navigate these dark months. One of the most desirable remedies for the winter blues is hitting those winter trails. Read on to fine out more.

Guess who’s back? Back again.
Bears are waking up from hibernation.

March 26, the first grizzly bear sighting of 2024 was reported in Grand Teton National Park. Now that bears are emerging from their dens, visitors and local community residents are encouraged to be bear aware, yes even when Nordic skiing.

– Be alert and watch for bears, fresh tracks, or scat.
– Make noise, especially in areas with limited visibility.
– Carry bear spray, know how to use it, and keep it readily
– Hike and ski in groups of three or more people.
-Secure all bear attractants (food, garbage, cooking gear, etc) inside your car or a bear-resistant locker. Never leave your backpack unattended.

Federal regulations require you to stay at least 100 yards away from bears and wolves (including while in your vehicle) and 25 yards from all other wildlife.

BTNF: Critical winter range reminder and spring conditions on the forest

The Bridger-Teton National Forest reminds visitors that winter wildlife restrictions remain in effect until May 1, 2024. It is important that all forest users understand the importance of observing critical winter range closures. Winter travel maps are available on the forest’s Maps and Publications webpage. These areas have been designated as essential to the survival of wildlife. When visitors access closed winter range, they cause animals using the area to become stressed or flee to new locations. This causes animals, especially ungulates like deer, elk and moose to use energy they cannot spare at this critical time of year. It can also place these animals in less suitable areas for grazing and/or browsing, preventing them from gathering the food sources necessary for their survival. This leads to a weakened condition, which can have a direct effect on the animals’ ability to defend themselves, making them more susceptible to predation and disease, and can lead to future reproduction problems in individual animals.

Spring is also an important time to be aware of hazards that come with the changing season. The forest reminds visitors to exercise caution as snow melts, temperatures rise and precipitation increases during the spring thaw, creating potential for muddy conditions and flooding in low-lying areas. Conditions across the forest are varied this time of year, and visitors should call or visit their local Ranger District Office for the latest updates before heading out for any spring activity. Be sure to let someone know where you are headed and remember that creeks or roads frozen in the morning may become soft and impassable as temperatures rise throughout the day. 

Forest users are encouraged to recreate responsibly this spring. Recreating with our four-legged members of our families can be great fun but comes with certain responsibilities. Be aware that many popular trailheads on the Jackson District have leash requirements, and even outside these areas it is imperative that visitors maintain control of their animals through a leash or voice command. This is essential to minimizing impacts on wildlife and improves the experience of other forest users. Bears will soon be coming out of hibernation throughout the area, so be prepared with bear spray and follow food storage orders where applicable on the northern and eastern parts of the forest. All forest users are also encouraged to practice Leave No Trace Principles by having a plan for all waste, as there are limited to no garbage services on the forest and many restrooms are closed or inaccessible due to current conditions.

We encourage winter trail users to support all of our grooming teams across Jackson Hole and Teton Valley. When possible please consider a donation to the trails you frequent. Please leave a comment such as “grooming” or “Nordic” in the designation or campaign section.

Trail Creek

Grooming Daily
Last Update 3/29

Norway 2, Husky 0
As grooming began late in the afternoon yesterday an interesting international encounter came to be.  With the Husky venturing out from the cabin, down around the Aspen Bump on its way to the back woods, a few visiting Norwegian skiers decided that the race was on.  They simply drafted the Husky as it wound its way around the close field, for a while as the Husky headed up Grunt with its quarter thousand horsepower advantage, it looked like the Husky might win the race.  However by the time the spectacle reached Moose Loop, it was clear that the Norwegians were victorious, way to go guys.

Racing the Husky might not be on the agenda for most skiers today, but a great ski can be had today at Trail Creek.  Course inspection will be ongoing today on the race courses so if you do come ski, be respectful of our visiting skiers, but it could also be a very fun day to ski.

What you’ll discover for grooming today is that the Husky was out late in the day covering pretty much every trail in the system.  Grooming began with a single skate/classic pass through pretty much every trail in the woods and after completing that, the race courses received extensive grooming in preparation for today’s course inspection.  All in all conditions are good and it should be a fantastic day to ski.

Racing begins tomorrow on the sprint course; if you can come and watch, we will have some of the fastest skiers in the world, blasting around the 1.2K course, should be great spectating.  Going forward the tentative schedule is race course grooming late in the day today, race course grooming Saturday evening with another pass through the woods if possible, and a final race course grooming for the season Sunday night.

Groomer’s choice for today is to come out to Trail Creek and enjoy some of the late night grooming.
