JACKSON — Grand Teton National Park officials say a proposed redesign of the trail system at Jenny Lake will simplify a confusing web of trails, preserve resources and improve visitor experiences.
The park is taking public comment through Sept. 15 on what issues need to be addressed in a coming environmental study.
The proposal will address aging trail infrastructure in four areas: the South Jenny Lake visitor area, Hidden Falls, the String Lake outlet and the Jenny Lake overlook.
Grand Teton planner Margaret Wilson said changes to the trail system will make route-finding less confusing.
Many of the trails were built in the 1930s and have been badly worn by crowds and are poorly marked.
