The Signal Mountain Summit Road and area in Grand Teton National Park have been temporarily closed to all visitors including motorists, cyclists, and hikers, due to heightened bear activity.
The road is closed for human safety and the protection of the bears.
Park rangers will monitor the situation and will reopen the road when conditions allow.
The road could be temporarily closed through the weekend or longer.
Rangers remind visitors to “Be Bear Aware,” as these animals are active throughout park and ask you report any bear activity or human-bear interactions to a nearby park ranger or visitor center.
