JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Grand Teton National Park officials are getting lots of opinions as they study the future of the Moose-Wilson Road.

Teton County commissioners want a bicycle path to be built along the 7-mile road. But the Jackson Hole Daily (https://bit.ly/1eKrjpN ) reports park officials are concerned that quick, silent cyclists could trigger an attack by the increasing number of grizzly bears there.

At a three-hour public meeting Tuesday, some people said they were more concerned about trying to ride their bikes with the increasing number of cars.

Chuck Harris suggested closing the road to cars and running a shuttle from Teton Village to the Laurance Rockefeller Preserve instead. That would leave Teton Village without vehicle access to the park.

The park is accepting public comment through Feb. 6.
