Signal Peaks destination is a forested rolling hill with few Vistas unless you peak through the trees. There is not a good trail once you leave the Oak Grove/Summit trail. luckily I found other trails off the summit trail which allowed me the vistas that made the hike a five star overall rating. signal peak may be the highest point in the Pine Mountain range but it is definitely not above the tree line.

Gorgeous hike. Perfect time of year with Fall colors. Saw over two dozen mule deer and over a dozen turkey. Had most of the trail to myself. First three miles moderate....but it does get steep and rocky after that. Simply beautiful views. Hiked into the clouds, at which point it became freezing cold (probably high 30s) and extremely windy. Still a great adventure.

Awesome. Beautiful all the way. I went 4 miles in where it split into several other trails or continues over to oak grove. There is no summit per say on this hike; though you could blaze to the top of one easily. You still get some great views while on the ridges. Weather was perfect; I used a light jacket after climbing about 3k ft. A little brisk on some of the ridges at 8am.

Fun trail with great views of St. George at the top!

I would recommend stopping at one of the first few false summits you cross at the top. The last jaunt to the ‘real’ summit was just bushwhacking (no more trail) and the views weren’t really any better. Turning around before crossing down the other side of the ridge (midpoint of the hike) would also be fine. At that point your views are awesome and you’ll avoid the worst parts of the trail. I don’t understand how to hike in pants, so I don’t; but this trial tore up my legs. Some narrow trials on the second half of the hike with thick foliage in certain parts.

Yep, it is difficult and there are numerous trees that have fallen. It is a great hike, though

I knew this would be a challenging hike for our Saturday hiking group. A great trail is one where you leave nothing in the tank and leave it all on the trail. Today, we did that. As we started the hike we looked up and thought the mountain was closer than we expected. Watch your trail, there are points where it’s easy to get off route. It was beautiful and hot. The trail is not maintained past the switchbacks and because of the earlier burn there is a lot of scrub oak along and growing over trail. (Wear long pants). We set a good pace and thought we were ahead of our schedule. We climbed to the top of what we thought was the peak and found a saddle and another 500 feet up. We climbed that, thinking surely this is the peak; nope, there was another three peaks beyond that! We chose the center one but found once we’d climbed that that there was a higher peak behind that one. This time, this was the real peak! Three false peaks before the real one. The climb down took a while but we hit the trailhead with no water left and glad that another challenge has been checked off our list. Great hike but I suspect we will be sore tomorrow! The views of Kolob Canyon were spectacular along the way and at the top. The views of other valleys and ridges in Pine Mountain Wilderness were also amazing! A tremendous day!

This is a very difficult trail for beginners. It has great views from the lookout by Burger Peak.

July 16 2019 took this trail into the campgrounds of Pine Valley. I was suppose to spend 5 days on the Summit Trail which still has serious snow. Routefinding at the top of Summit trail and this trail is still difficult due to snow. Trail down is easy to follow, but blocked by dead fall. I imagine only experienced horses would do well on this trail in it's current state. From Oak Grove to Pine Valley in a day. Great day hike, but serious!

still 2 ft + snow last 1.5 mi or so. We made it to the top of Oak Grove trail though with extra effort slipping on the snow. Lots of dead fall over trail makes it easy to lose trail if you're not careful. Great hike! A little steep coming back down, but not nearly as bad as Oak Grove. The views are simply amazing!!

Great long hike. It’s 3,000 + Vertical feet with lots of good nature. The trail most of the way is pretty easy to follow until the end. I’d definitely recommend this to peak baggers.

Backpacked in in the evening and camped a few miles up the trail. Then finished the hike in the morning. It’s a beautiful trail! I would love to do it again.

This trail has some really incredible views. We drove our 2011 Hyundai Tuscon across starting from Skyline drive. It was really rough and required every ounce of technical navigating skills I had to make it, but it was really fun. I would highly recommend taking this trip, but in a trail ready vehicle or ATV.

A couple of turns on this trail are a little tricky to stay on course but will no quickly that a turn was missed. Exposed to sun and a late morning start will get warm. Good for dogs since not very popular. There are good sections for running and sections where best to walk due to rocks— at least for me.

It is a hard trail in the beginning and the best view is at the end of the first elevation gain stretch. the up 190m down 190m at then end then looping back is where you get to see browns point but I wouldnt say that last stretch is worth it.

This is the steepest and hardest trail that I have hiked is SW Utah. I only went 2.5 miles in as I was battered, bruised and bloodied.

A primitive backcountry experience into Pine Valley Mountain Wilderness. A long difficult hike, into very remote, rugged terrain.
