The first turnout has a great view of the Tetons, whereas the summit just looks out onto prairie-ish looking fields and a few ponds, that was really underwhelming.

We went in early September. The crowds were quite manageable though the smoke from forest fires in neighboring states limited the views significantly. We had actually hired a wildlife tour guide and this was the first stop. She said you could often see bear from...More

Amazing views of mountains and valleys. Don't take caravans or campers up the road. It is too narrow.

The expansive views make the trip to the top of Signal Mountain is worth the 5 miles of winding road.

We drove up Signal Mountain to check out the views. They were pretty cool, and I'm glad we did it. The drive up Signal Mountain is on a somewhat narrow and windy road. This was fine as traffic wasn't bad early in the morning. It...More

With a smoke haze in the area from wildfires, it was probably not the best day to visit this summit. However on a fine clear day the views would be worth the drive up.

Enjoyed the views from both overlooks on this road. Only a little disappointed that the view of the Tetons was not the main focus. Encountered a young male elk walking along the side of the road on our way down.

This is a nice twisty drive up to the summit, where there are expansive views of the mountains and general terrain. Not to be missed. Be prepared, as it will be cooler and windy at the top.

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.

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
