(Jackson, Wyo.) - Yesterday, Friends of Pathways announced that Path 22, the pathway from the Town of Jackson to Teton Village, was officially plowed and clear for recreation. According to Lauren Dickey, the education director for Friends of Pathways, at this point all of the county pathways are either melted or plowed. There are a few exceptions, including the North 89 Pathway that runs next to the Elk Refuge, which is closed until April 30, and many pathways in Grand Teton National Park. Dickey told us that the pathways in Grand Teton National Park melt out naturally, and typically aren't open until May or so, but there is no formal closure on the Park's pathways. According to the Grand Teton National Park Foundation, Grand Teton's Inner Park Road will be groomed for the final time on Friday, March 11 from Bradley-Taggart to Signal Mountain and then plowing will start Monday, March 14. All the trails are still pretty muddy and icy. Here's a link to the Teton County pathways.
