Who owns the pathway?

The pathway is located on property owned by the U.S Fish and Wildlife Service (the National Elk Refuge), but the pathway itself is owned by Teton County.

The Elk Refuge and Teton County have adopted a Memorandum of Understanding that sets the rules for the pathway, enforcement of the rules, and the ongoing management and evaluation plan. The County is responsible for construction, maintenance, and management of the pathway. The Elk Refuge is responsible for managing the use of refuge lands, including what is allowable in terms of constructing and using the pathway.
