Bicycling in Grand Teton National Park
- Travel Tips
- Fodor's Choice
Teton Park Road and Jackson Hole Highway are generally flat with long, gradual inclines, and have well-marked shoulders. Cyclists should be very careful when sharing the road with vehicles, especially RVs and trailers. The first phase of a paved bike path along Teton Park Road was completed in 2008 and runs between Moose and the visitor center at Jenny Lake. A bike lane allows for northbound bike traffic along the one-way Jenny Lake Loop Road, a one-hour ride. The River Road, 4 mi north of Moose, is an easy four-hour mountain-bike ride along a ridge above the Snake River on a gravel road. Bicycles are not allowed on trails or in the backcountry.
In Jackson, ride the Snow King trails system that begins at Snow King resort. The Cache Creek to Game Creek loop is a 25-mi ride on dirt roads and trails. The two trails systems also link together. In addition, the surrounding Bridger-Teton National Forest has abundant mountain-biking trails and roads.
