TETON PARK ROAD OPEN - MAY 1, 2012


South Jenny Lake Junction
The Teton Park Road is open to motorized vehicle traffic for the summer season.  The Lupine Meadows Trailhead and Death Canyon Trailhead are melted out and accessible by vehicle.  The bike pathway from Moose to Jenny Lake is melted out and open to use, while the segment from Gros Ventre Junction to Moose remains closed until construction is complete in early summer.  Many trails along the valley floor are rapidly melting out as well, especially on the south end of the Park.  The Jenny Lake Ranger Station will open at 8:00 am on Saturday, May 26.  

Backcountry camping permits are required year-round for all overnight trips into the backcountry of Grand Teton National Park.  Climbers and hikers can obtain free backcountry camping permits at the Craig Thomas Discovery & Visitor Center prior to May 26.  Detailed information can be found in the links on the right.
