Starting Monday, May 12, a temporary area closure will be in effect for several south Jenny Lake locations within Grand Teton National Park. The temporary public closures are necessary to ensure public safety during construction activities involving helicopter-assisted transport of heavy material to trail locations on the west side of Jenny Lake. These public closures will last from May 12 through May 19, and possibly longer.
Areas not affected by this temporary public closure include: the Teton Park Road; Jenny Lake scenic loop road; eastern portion of the Jenny Lake parking area near the Jenny Lake Store; and String Lake parking lots and trailheads.
This slight and temporary inconvenience will be short-term in nature. Park managers appreciate the public's cooperation in observing all posted closure notices in the south Jenny Lake area.
This transport of material via helicopter is part of the Jenny Lake Renewal project. Work on the backcountry trail system from the westshore of Jenny Lake to Hidden Falls will be underway this summer. Detour routes will be well marked for visitors wishing to reach Hidden Falls, Inspiration Point or Cascade Canyon during the hiking season.
