Moogie737Oak Grove TH  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 28, 2008


Brent and I, in the heat of an unusually warm late fall day, reached the summit after bagging, most comically, peak 10,217' too. Having GPS waypoints was a huge help. All of the page comments concerning the unending switchbacks are on the money. It's nice to have this county highpoint checked off. #2 5-20-12 Mit einer Sonderperson; Schnee machte es sehr schwer, den Weg zu finden, besonders auf dem Rueckweg. :) Spaeter haben wir die Sonnenfinsterniss bewundert waehrend wir auf der Spitze von Brianhead Berg sassen. Herrlich!

The Oak Grove Trail is in bad shape. Save this one for the spring or summer when it's not so hot!

Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2003


We originally attempted this peak in April and were turned back due to an exhorbitant amount of snow that didn't mesh well with our trail runners. We returned in July to experience totally different conditions. The temps were 100+ degrees and there wasn't a cloud in sight. We were extremely happy when we finally reached some tree cover on the upper slopes. A pretty cool little area!

Spent the night at the campground below and hit the hike at daybreak. It was a suprise when we hit the ridge and had like 2' of snow. But it sure kicked my but although the views were worth it

The forest had a nice, pimeval feel. Enjoyed also the alpine meadows, all the flora and insects along the way and great sunset. The photos are here: Signal Peak hike

The climb from Oak Grove was Hellacious! (is that a word)
Lots of snow once we crossed the ridge, and the meadows were waterlogged.
(gotta love spring hiking)

Date Climbed: Aug 17, 2006


Butt kicker is right, especially on a hot August day. My son Brad and I slept at the campground the night before and started as early as we could to beat the 100 degree heat of the St. George area. The trail is badly overgrown but the tread of the trail is never in doubt. Great views all the way up and found that my favorite spot was Deer Flat, a neat little meadow that I was surprised to find in this desert oasis.

The hike down was probably harder than the hike up but it was a great day to spend with my son.

Very nice views on the way up.

Five from LVMC (www.lvmc.org) went to the top, signed both logs (one on the true top, and the one with a view). Without a GPS to find the "top" this would have been difficult, since there are many forested lumps that appear to be about the same height. There was a pile of snow at ~ 9700', and many, many flowers.

The Oak Grove campground is not officially "open", and there is no one to collect fees and maintain order. However, the interagecy information group in St George told us we could camp there, but there was no water. We camped at a very nice site... and at 9 PM, some local kids pulled in across the campground, set up boom boxes, drank heavily, and about 11PM, began shooting off guns. Our sleep was a little disturbed.

Nice trail to the crest. Still a lot of snow up high. Difficult to determine the precise highpoint, but I think I got it. A very pretty area.

I saw a couple of guys with dogs on the way up, but nobody else. Snow covered parts of the steep trail near the top of the Western portions of the trail. I kept thinking I would get snowed out at any second, but it never happened. In checking with my topo, I was sure I found the right bump that should be Signal Peak. However, I found no cairn, nor a register on top. Hmm...I might re-visit this one to check the other bump for any signs of visitors.

Hit the trail at 7:00 am with a sh*& load of black insects zapping my ass. Hit summit trail in under two hours and started a brisk hike west to the peak. After the meadow at Further Water I took a more direct approach to the summit. Made it back to the traihead before 11:30. Due to the steepness on the return trip running was not an option.
