Description

It was a beautiful day in March for our first hike after a broken leg, and we decided to attempt Signal Butte. The trail starts out off of FS Road 362. Cut through the wooden fence opening to the trail at the end of the campsite/parking area.

The trail begins with an easy climb then increases in steepness. Starting a short ways up, you'll enjoy the rock steps that the forestry service placed on the majority of the trail. Towards the top of the short half mile trail, hikers will come upon a little scrambling to the top. Once you reach the top you can see 360-degree views of the Hayman Fire scar.

After taking in the views, return the way that you came.
