Biking is a popular activity in the park. The pathway extends from The Kudar, north to Antelope Flats Road. At Moose Junction the pathway follows the Teton Park Road to the South Jenny Lake area.

The section of the pathway along the National Elk Refuge from Jackson to Gros Ventre Junction is closed from November 1 to April 30 due to elk migration. Website
