    Bob McStuff reviewed Skyline Trail

    14 days ago

    Definitely not "hard", not really sure how Alltrails scoring works but the first part is literally paved... Would probably recommend boots for the later parts but there were plenty of people doing it in trainers and they seemed to be fine.

    We did the route clockwise and took the Lake Trails junction rather than cutting back to Paradise as per this route, which took us down to the reflection lakes. This (plus the Glacier View .75 mile each way spur) took us to about 10.5 miles which was a good distance.

    We arrived about 9.15 am and there was plenty of parking, when we got back a little after 2pm the place was pretty packed out.

    The trail itself was busy the first couple of miles, then it empties out a bit. After Panorama Point it is much quieter. The woodland trails further down the mountain were much quieter and we saw 2 bears and lots of marmots. This was Saturday 7th Sept.

    The views of Rainier and the glaciers are absolutely spectacular and the whole thing was a great day out - and with the extra add-on almost qualifies as being hard!

    Nice trail, very easy to follow and well signed. Conditions underfoot are easy. Scenic walk and a nice drive up to it as well. You could tell the Tamawanas trailhead was busier because on the part of this route that is shared with the Tamawanas route there were lots more people. we only saw one or two people on the Polallie section.
