We love the Skyline trail, great way to spend the day and see amazing views of the valley. We do like it in cooler months and early morning. Mid summer can be hot in the afternoon.

A perfect late summer day was spent walking up the hill (with a great piece of pie at the top), followed by an even better stroll back down to town. Worth the time.

This is a great day hike in the Ogden area. Snow still at top of mountain Memorial Day weekend so if you want to make it to the top, wear your hiking boots. Great views, great change in terrain. Takes about 7-8 hours round trip,...More

I use this trail everyday. It's a challenging hike but not so hard that you can't do it. It is pretty steep in areas. But a very beautiful hike. It's rattlesnake haven so be watchful of where you walk. I have almost stepped on 2...More

I must admit that I've only hiked portions of the trail. Those portions were easy, well maintained and led to other adventures for our family- we letter box. The trails are easy enough that our two year old hiked them no problem. The views beautiful!

I love hiking this trail, from either direction, at all times of the year. Last winter was fairly mild, so I hiked the south end (south facing) several times with no need for snowshoes. Fall is my absolute favorite time to hike this trail in...More

Traffic depends on which trailhead you start up, but generally the trail is clean and easily followed. Dog friendly, too.
