Description

Catch this road near the Mountaineer Bowl and follow it to the right as it climbs up toward the first tower. Pass the contour trail and the flow trail before riding around the first tower and toward the second tower. After the second tower the road continues along the ridge passing chicken scratch and a spur of trail that heads down toward the Cranor Hill ski area. Continue uphill as the road gets much steeper. Finally the road flattens out as it nears the top of signal. In this flat area is where you can connect with Rasta Gulch for a singletrack descent of continue to up the road to the top of Signal Peak.
