New, Improved Togwotee Trail To Yellowstone Highway Features 3 Snowmobile Underpasses




The recently reconstructed Togwotee Trail (U.S. Highway 26-287) is the southern gateway and the most visitor-friendly road to Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks and Jackson Hole. As the highway winds through Wyoming’s Wind River Country (Fremont County), including the western towns of Dubois, Lander and Riverton, it is known as the easiest, most scenic route to the national parks.

Part of the Centennial Scenic Byway, the highway reaches 9,658 feet in elevation as it crosses the Continental Divide on Togwotee Pass, one of the most popular snowmobiling areas in the West. This new and improved highway—from Dubois to Moran, WY—now includes state-of-the-art visitor amenities and safety features.

For winter use, three snowmobile underpasses were also added to the highway for the safety of riders as well as wildlife. Newly paved and expanded parking areas give travelers year-round access to hiking, biking, wildlife viewing and snowmobile trails on public lands.

The 38-mile Togwotee Trail highway reconstruction project took seven years, at a cost of $146 million.
