Quick Tips

 

Southeast Gateway to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks

The Togwotee Trail underwent a seven year, 28-mile highway reconstruction project. Completed in 2012 and costing $146 million, the road now includes state-of-the-art visitor amenities and safety assets.

One of the highlights of the improved road is the Wildlife Arch where wildlife can cross underneath the highway.  The arch was built for the protection of animals as well as travelers. Pole fencing on the side of the road helps guide the animals to the 126 foot long and 42 foot wide arch.

Wider bridges and other road crossings were created to assist migratory efforts for local wildlife.  The road has increase visibility, wider shoulders for emergency stopping, added passing lanes, and scenic pullouts overlooks with cultural and historical interpretive signs. For winter use, three snowmobile crossings were also added to the highway.  The crossings go underneath the highway and were designed for the safety of the riders as well as the wildlife. Newly paved and expanded parking areas give the traveler year-round access to hiking, biking, wildlife viewing and snowmobile trails.
