Teton Mobility Project

The Teton Mobility Project is a joint project of Friends of Pathways and Jackson Hole Community Pathways (the Town of Jackson and Teton County Pathways program). We’re taking a fresh look at the current pathway and sidewalk system to identify deficiencies and prioritize future improvements. We are seeking public input on how the current pathways system is meeting your needs for a safe, interconnected network that supports active transportation and recreation in Teton County, and how future improvements can better serve you. Your input will guide the next 25 years of pathways development and improvement in the Town of Jackson and Teton County. WE NEED YOUR INPUT!


Friends of Pathways is the community advocate for a complete pathways system, partnering with government agencies for construction support and ongoing education and encouragement programs. Over 53 miles of pathways have been completed in Teton County with an additional 16 miles in Grand Teton National Park. We’re working diligently with local government to help complete the remaining “missing links” of our pathway system proposed by the 2007 Pathways Master Plan. Visit us here to keep up-to-date on these current projects.

As part of the south highway 89 widening project, the adjacent pathway will be extended, from Game Creek (where it ends now) to the Swinging Bridge. A new tunnel will connect to Game Creek and then head south on the east side of the highway. The new pathway segment will also provide a safe route to the new Munger school for students in the area, including a tunnel near the school access road.

Friends of Pathways and the Town of Jackson engaged engineering and design firm, Mobycon, to develop a Dutch type of solution to make this critical travel way more inviting. In 2018, a pilot project was conducted to launch this new design, which resulted in an increase in the number of cyclists and reduced speeds from vehicles.

This project will make May Park more accessible to nearby neighborhoods by bridging Cache Creek Ditch and improving the alley on the western edge of the park with a safe and inviting walk/bike route.

With the completion of the Budge Drive Stabilization Project, the cycletracks on the north side of Broadway will be completed, so cyclists will no longer have to veer from their protected route onto the highway.

Streets | Bike Share

START Bike is a program of START Bus. A full bike share system will be launched in the spring of 2018 with 55 bikes and 17 stations.


Friends of Pathways has a formal partnership with the USFS to collaborate on design, construction and stewardship of local trails for all users – hike, bike, horse, and ski. We’re committed to providing easy year round access to trails that are essential to maintaining our high quality of life in Jackson Hole.

Friends of Pathways employs a youth trail crew to work side-by-side with Bridger-Teton Trail Crew staff to improve our close-to-home trail system.

The Teton Pass Bridge Project rebuilt 14 bridges that had been significantly damaged at troublesome creek crossings and bog areas. In 2019, the Youth Trail Crew will replace the final two bridges to complete the project.
