This trail continues beyond signal peak. If you follow the service road down a bit you will hit the trail again which follows the ridge line for a mile or two before hitting the CDT which makes for a less steep hike overall and it can be taylored to any length. A very nice hike.

Trailhead is about 1/4 mike N of milepost 14 on NM15. First 1/4 mile of trail a challenge to track through a marsh but easy after that. Not as steep as expected. Hiked trail in March and was the only hiker. Can't go past Signal Peak tower due to USFS restrictions from forest fire 2 years ago.
