This was a picturesque hike in Skyline Wilderness park. The hike was 7-mile hike (3.5 hours) with a total ascent of 1,550 feet. It was a moderate hike with some good strenuous climb. We hiked the Skyline trail to Lake Marie, had a break at the lake, and then we took the Upper Marie Creek trail to Bayleaf trail, and turned to the Buckeye trail and back to the trail head.

This was a beautiful hike overlooking Napa Valley. Highly recommend. Moderate with a couple of steep inclines that were challenging (Rock Rim).

Many trails to choose from and venture off of. Beautiful views but bring a lot of water! More walking up hill than there is walking down hill

My wife and I enjoyed this hike after some morning shopping in Napa. It took two hours with a 20 minute picnic break. We went clockwise and were happy with our decision. This way gives you more shade on the climb up and then great views of Napa on the final descent back to the parking lot. The trail is about a third fire roads, but the other two thirds is composed of hiking trails. The loop takes you through a nice variety of habitats. There are bathrooms and water at the parking lot. There is a port-o-potty about midway through the hike, but no water on the trails. One warning, though. I'm not sure who created this trail, but it's not an official park trail. This is a collection of other trails so there are no signs for the "Lower Skyline Loop" trail. However, the All Trails App worked great and there was reception, so we had an easy reference whenever we came to an unmarked fork in the road.

Great homie but not a lot of shade and it's pretty steep. But I'm going back.

This was a decent, somewhat strenuous hike. It is *extremely* dusty. The first quarter of the trail is deceptively easy. Rock Rim was the hardest part of the trail by far.

Love it, I run it at least once a week. Its an excellent interval workout, with fantastic views, especially if you take Skyline to the top to loop around and Chapperell on the way out. Bring water! IMPORTANT: *Keep attention though*, the place is not joking about the Rattlesnakes, Wild pigs, Coyotes, and Mountain Lions that they warn you about on the many signs on the way to the trailhead. I run into at least one or 2 of those things every week. Making Noise on certain parts of the trail or going in a group is a good way to avoid problems, but makes it less likely to see wildlife. The Coyotes will run away, The mountain lions are very shy, My eye is always looking in the trail grass for rattlesnakes, and well; The wild pigs are *a**holes (but rarely encountered) Have fun!

It was a beautiful hike actually took Skyline to Buckeye so we could see the lakes then took Lower Marie Creek back. Marie was pretty sunny tho so I wouldn't suggest on a hot day. Overall wonderful day will go back to concur all of Skyline.

Buddy and I hiked for the first time, we took the lesser road traveled and glad we did, definitely will be hiking up this one again.

Great hike! Beautiful views!

awesome hike...very steep in areas...

awesome trail...many side trails connect to it....

very steep...start at skyline for xtra calories burned

Awesome trail with several different side trails to take. I like mountain biking in and exploring. Some sections are pretty technical for the experienced riders.

lots of elevation gain, but the view is definitely worth it. worth doing again.
