Skyline Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"Skyline Drive is an ideal ride for the beginning mountain bike rider who wants a few thrills, a fairly short ride, a little climbing, a lot of downhill and a fabulous mountain views high in the forest. Except for a few roller coaster sections, the ride is mostly downhill-virtually all of the elevation gain is achieved with the chairlift."

"Here is a hard, 18.3-mile loop that is well worth the effort involved. The trail begins with a three-mile climb that is steep for the first mile and then becomes less difficult. Once the Skyline is reached the riding becomes easier. As you cycle along the ridge you'll traverse a series of hills, losing elevation overall. After passing the trail to Grandview Point, there are several short climbs and two moderately steep ascents tat are both over a mile long. there is plenty of descending. Two-thirds of the ride is on two-wheel-drive dirt roads. These are in good condition with some washboarding on some of the steeper sections. There is one mile of good singletrack trail. The remainder of the trip is on paved roads in good condition. This route briefly joins CA 18; exercise caution on this busy highway."
