Grand Teton National Park Opens to Bicyclists

By wpdev April 11, 2011

Every year, April is bicycling month in Grand Teton National Park. At the beginning of the month, the National Park Service plows the road and opens large sections of the park’s roads to non-motorized traffic only. While the snow is still flying daily here in Jackson Hole, the sun peaked out for a few precious hours yesterday, and many brave cyclists made the ride up from the Old West town of Jackson to the Park’s entrance, 12 miles north of town. Those who made the journey were rewarded with sunny skies, and beautiful views of the Teton peaks.

As we near April 15th the roads in Yellowstone National Park (buttressing the north border of Grand Teton National Park) will also open the non-motorized traffic. Visitors to the park during the spring season can pedal the quite roads on tranquil day trips or stay overnight in the historic Old Faithful Inn.

Motorized traffic to Grand Teton National Park will be opening in May, with the roads in Yellowstone National Park roads opening, weather allowing, throughout the first half of the month.
