State Awards Grant To Build Trails Near Jackson

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - The Wyoming Lands and Investments Board has awarded $375,715 to help build about 27 miles of hiking and biking trails near Jackson. The money will help pay for part of a $775,000 project intended to add trails and improve existing trails at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort and Snow King Resort, on Teton Pass and in the greater Snow King area.
Tim Young is the executive director of Friends of Pathways. He says the additional trails will help put Jackson on the map for biking enthusiasts and bring in tourism dollars. The plan includes 10 miles of new bike trails and a bike park near the Teewinot lift at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort. The plan also includes improving portions of the Upper Game Creek trail in the great Snow King trail system.
