“Whether you're looking for a scenic overlook, or a starting point for a hike, we recommend driving up to Signal Point. If you're looking for a shorter hike, hike down to Rainbow Lake and back. If you're up for a six mile hike, we recommend the trip from Signal Point to Edwards Point for the most stunning view around. ”

“You can choose to take the wider trail to the Lake, less than a mile from the parking lot, and take the swaying walking bridge over to the other side. You can also choose to hike to Rainbow Falls, several miles away on a small trail. Bring water and a snack for that adventure.”
