“A relatively easy run to an isolated summit providing stunning views of the Teton Range.”— Tom Robson
Continue east here as the trail switchbacks its way up this generally easy trail. Eventually the trail will drop for a short while down to a small gully - this is where the Signal Mountain Cutoff rejoins Signal Mountain Trail. Stay left and head up the gully, this is where the difficult running starts.
Follow the gully's fall line as it slogs its way up to the peak of Signal Mountain. To you east you'll have a dense forest of conifer and cottonwood trees, and to your west you'll have an open meadow, although this doesn't lead to great views... yet! Follow the trail as it switchbacks up the mountain until you reach the stunning vistas at the top.
Once you've had your fill of views, head back down the way you came, yet we recommend turning left to join the Signal Mountain Cutoff, instead of going back on the Signal Mountain Trail. This less-used alternative heads south of the ridge past a series of small ponds and eventually meets back up with the Signal Mountain Trail. Take this back to the Lodge!
