Yakima Skyline Trail

Yakima Skyline Trail Professional Review and Guide

"When the doldrums of the rainy season set in on the western side of the mountains, hop over to the Yakima Skyline Trail for a shot of sunshine and fantastic sights. The Skyline Trail meanders along the top of a ridgeline, exhibiting views of the Yakima Valley to the south and the Yakima Canyon to the north. Whether you go for a couple of miles or spend the day exploring, this desert ridge has much to offer.

The trail starts off to the northeast of the parking area, on what appears to have been a road. Quickly the road turns to a single-track trail and the hike up the canyon begins. Climb past seasonal flowers such as sage, lupine, and balsam, while meadowlarks sing from the surrounding hills"
