The road to the top of Signal Mountain is narrow and winding. However, the view at the top is gorgeous. It is definitely worth the drive!

It's only a few miles to savor, and weather at the top may be completely different than the weather at the bottom, but this is an excellent drive for black bear, grouse, mule deer, and breathtaking views!

Great view at the top overlooking a valley & Snake River. There are also some gorgeous views of Jackson Lake. The drive up has sharp turns and steep grade but nothing too difficult. There's a short walk from the parking areas to the overlook. Take...More

The drive to the top is pretty exciting, as there are sharp drop offs, but at the top the views are excellent. We drove up, got swarmed by mosquitoes, took some pictures, and ran back to the car. Next time we will bring bug spray.

A winding road to get to the top, but worth the drive. Once there, other visitors offered their binoculars to share their finds.

This is a bit off the beaten path, and a 20 minute drive up the mountain through uninspiring forest. But the view eastward and northward shows a different part of Jackson Hole, the side opposite Jackson Lake; worth going there.

This is your spot for the panorama views of Grand Teton. The road driving up is narrow and with many foreign visitors can be an exciting drive so be careful but you'll love the top!

Stunning views of Jackson Lake on the drive to the summit and of the valley to the East from the summit. Also, great cell phone reception at the top of the mountain (a bonus!)

I plan to drive to the top of Signal mountain and do some astro photography at night. Can anyone tell me if this road is closed at night? If the road is closed at night how safe is it to hike to the top? Your help is much appreciated.

I don't know if the road is closed at night. The NPS website doesn't tell. I guess the best is to ask directly to the rangers through their website.

How steep is the road up? I have an old RV that doesn't handle hills well but want to make it to the top for sunrise while I'm there in a few days

Not very steep, probably maxes out at 6% grade.

I have two questions and I appreciate the opportunity to ask the staff. First...I noticed several small areas with logs and brush. It seemed like they were set up for little bonfires, and I wondered if they are used as signals in the winter, such as for a New Year's celebration. I know this is a weird question, but I saw so many of these little areas, over 15 for sure, that they really piqued my imagination. Second, my husband wonders what the towers at the top of the summit are for. We did manage to get cell phone reception and wondered if these towers are cell phone towers or are used for other types of transmissions. Thank you so much for upkeep of the mountain and for giving visitors such a wonderful experience.

These are called "slash piles" and are used for controlled fires as a form of fuel reduction. In areas where infrastructure is built, the trees are thinned out and wood piled. Once there is snow on the ground the piles will... More
