Teton Centennial Trail Project Well on Its Way

The Teton Centennial Trail Project is a 1.9 mile paved bicycle and pedestrian pathway on the Caribou-Targhee National Forest that runs from Moose Creek to the Wyoming state line on the historic “Old Jackson Highway” roadbed.  Construction has also been funded for the Wyoming portion of Centennial Trail from the state line to Trail Creek Campground, including an undercrossing at Trail Creek Campground.  As a result, project managers aim to construct the Idaho and Wyoming portions concurrently with an anticipated grand opening in 2019 which will further increase access opportunities for users on both sides of the Idaho/Wyoming state line. 

 

The Teton Centennial Trail also builds upon a larger pathway system that aims to link the Caribou-Targhee National Forest to the Bridger-Teton National Forest on Teton Pass which then connects to the WY-22 pathway into the town of Jackson and Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park pathway systems. 

 

The City of Victor has committed to seeing the $3.3 Million Dollar project through.  It has primarily been funded with two grant awards from the Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP).  In a show of strong community support others have signed on to fund the project as well including Teton Valley Trails and Pathways, Idaho Department of Transportation, the LOR Foundation, Teton County Idaho, and the Community Foundation of Teton Valley.  Mayor Potter expressed his gratitude, “We owe a big thanks to the community members and organizations that have helped fund the visionary Centennial Pathway.  It’s with their support that the pathway will provide world class access to our local public lands and eventually Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks.  It doesn’t get any better than that!”
