    Grand Teton Nat. Park open for bikes!!!

    well, the roads, at least...in april it is only open for non-motorized traffic. With such a huge year we have had, they managed to open the roads early for bikes. COOL.

    Subject: Teton Park Road Opens for Annual Spring Activities

    According to a press release from Grand Teton National Park, the Teton
    Park Road in Grand Teton National Park has been plowed and is now open
    to non-motorized activities such as hiking, biking, and inline skating
    from Taggart Lake parking area to Signal Mountain. Rotary plows are
    still working on the Jenny Lake scenic loop portion of the inner park
    road. For safety reasons, visitors are cautioned not to approach any
    snow plows that may be working on the scenic loop roadway. Visitors are
    also reminded to be alert for park administrative vehicles that may
    occasionally travel the Teton Park Road. The Moose-Wilson Road has also
    been plowed and opened for non-motorized use.

    The annual springtime opening of the Teton Park Road is a much
    anticipated event because it provides a unique and excellent
    opportunity to access the roadway before vehicle traffic begins for the
    summer. Both the Teton Park and Moose-Wilson roads will open to vehicle
    traffic on May 1.

    Leashed dogs are permitted on the Teton Park, Antelope Flats, and
    Moose-Wilson roads, as well as other park byways. Dogs are restricted
    to roadways and turnouts - they are not permitted to travel beyond
    fifty feet from roadbeds or into the park's backcountry. Owners failing
    to keep pets on a leash (six foot maximum length) may force the
    prohibition of dogs on park roads during this popular time. Mutt Mitt
    stations are in place at the Taggart Lake parking area; pet owners are
    reminded to use waste disposal bags to pick up after their dogs.

    Reports have been circulating that the crust is up! Don't miss the
    opportunity to skate-ski valley wide this spring!

    The park sucks.

    Best place to ride mtn bikes is in the national forest on the other side of the highway.

    Free camping and none of the leash your dog crap...plus more wildlife over there and way less folks and much much better views
