JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) – The main road through Grand Teton National Park has been plowed clear of snow and is opening up for nonmotorized recreational use.
The Jackson Hole News and Guide reports that Teton Park Road will be open to pedestrians and bikers through May 1.
The annual opening of the 14-mile road from Taggart Lake trailhead to Signal Mountain Lodge typically attracts hundreds of visitors who come out to enjoy the views each day.
Park spokeswoman Denise Germann says National Park Service vehicles will still be in use along other roads and visitors are cautioned to steer clear of plows and other heavy equipment.
She’s also warning visitors to be careful on Teton Park Road, as some parts could still be icy in coming weeks.
