Grand Teton Biking
Biking is a popular activity in Grand Teton National Park. Bicycles are allowed on paved and unpavedroads open to motorized vehicles (unless otherwise posted) and on the park's multi-use pathway. (The section of the pathway from the Dornans property line in Moose to South Jenny Lake has been completed and more phases are planned.) The pathway and many roads are open seasonally after snow has been cleared. Opening dates vary depending on weather conditions. Cyclists are not allowed to ride on trails or in the backcountry.
Some roads in the park have a very narrow shoulder, or lack one altogether. Caution must be used. Download the park's biking brochure for a map of suggested routes. Popular bike routes are listed below.
