MOOSE, Wyo. (KIFI) — The National Park Service will resume construction activities addressing infrastructure needs in the southern portion of the Moose-Wilson Road in Grand Teton National Park on Monday, July 11, at 7 a.m.

Public access will again be limited to weekends during summer construction activities.  

Visitor impacts when construction resumes:

  • From July 11 to Labor Day, the southern portion of the Moose-Wilson Road from Granite Canyon Entrance to the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve will be closed, except on weekends 7 p.m. Friday to 7 a.m. Monday and Labor Day. Parking along the southern portion of the road is prohibited, including parking at trailheads as well as horse trailer parking along the road. The southern portion of the road will be closed entirely after Labor Day.
  • The northern section of the road will remain accessible. Access to the Laurance S. Rockefeller Preserve and Death Canyon Trailhead will be available from the north, from Moose, Wyoming, during construction.
  • The Granite Canyon Trailhead will remain closed to all access. Winter access will be available from December 2022 to March 2023. Access to the Granite Canyon trail system, including the Valley Trail, is available from Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. Grand Teton is working in partnership with the Resort and Teton Village Association.
