Take a drive to the summit for a spectacular sunrise ( on a clear morning) and panoramic views. The road is slightly steep and winding to the top. It may feel like you will never get there. But stay the course and you will be rewarded with great scenery in a tranquil setting.

We brought our lunch with us to this spot and scored even finding a picnic table. It's a cautious drive up and down, with the occasional speeder going up and down too fast, so be careful. Other than that, worth every moment.

A great road for views towards Jackson Hole and Jackson Lake. Can be good for wildlife if you get there early before it gets too busy. Dusky Grouse often by the verge near the summit and Ruffed Grouse at lower elevations. Usually close Mule Deer by the road.

We drove up here to see the view and were glad we did. From the top you can get almost a 360 degree view of the lake and the surrounding area. The trails are easy to walk and parking isn't too bad.

The first view point gives you a beautiful view of the Tetons and the lake if you walk the short path to the end. The top view point gives you a completely different perspective of the valley, which we found to be very pretty with the mix of the golden aspens and evergreens. We were able to pick out three...

This is a very winding road up Signal Mountain, but it is not too long and you are rewarded with a great view.

The view is really great on top however it's long and at the end, twisty road. Signs state campers aren't allowed on the road but we saw a couple of them. Fortunately we didn't have to pass any!!
