Just a heads up everyone.... Due to Covid 19, Cypress Bowl Road is now closed near the bottom. This means even mid level hikes such as the Skyline Trail will require an alternative entry point.

Beauty hike, true moderate climb. Compact snow on 08/03/2020, didn’t use spikes until last 500m. Nice views!

Great trail! Great day! A little fresh powder over the packed snow proved to be a little slippery in the super steep section at the end... for my spikes anyways! :) Unreal views of the skihill, ocean and downtown. I would definitely recommend larger spikes/crampons over snowshoes for this hike unless there's a decent amount of fresh powder.... as it gets pretty packed down. The last push up the hill is very worth it!! (we noticed a lot of people turning back at the foot of the steep section)

Trail is a bit of a different route than in the summer. Access trailhead from parking lot. 1st section steep followed by nice walk through woods. at about 2.5 km hit ski turn around area and it's officially "backcountry" with a nice warning sign but trail still marked to main viewpoint (of the Lions). However past this sign is very steep. Spikes, poles, snowshoes, etc - appropriate winter gear necessary! Lots of people sliding down the hill rather than walking down.

Panoramic view at the top. Sun setting to the west, full moon rising to the east. Magical! The snow was packed, so no need for snowshoes but microspikes would be necessary for the last climb. Very steep going up and down.

Super nice hike! We made it up to the peak using Cypress trails (Far East and Upper Limit) and joined up for the last section. You need snowshoes or microspikes. Normal hiking/winter boots will not be enough. Most of the trail is pretty easy up and downhill expect the last 500 m - 1km. The last part is very steep and covered in snow/ice. Overcast so no views from the top. Took 3.5 hours roundtrip with the Cypress trails. Would do again!

Snowshoe'd up on Jan 4. Hardpacked snow and icy in some areas. Very steep on the final approach to the top. You should bring snowshoes or wear spikes. Either would be sufficient for the conditions. Saw lots of people trying to hike up in regular boots or running shoes and they were slipping and sliding all over the place. It was very foggy throughout the whole hike. No views at the top because of the fog. Overall good, short hike. I'd love to do it again on a sunny day.

Fun dog friendly snow shoe trail. We got to the trailhead at 8:30am and there were already a couple of cars. Parking lot was full by the time we finished. Trail is great condition and very well marked. Snowshoes aren’t necessary, but nice to have especially during the steeper sections.

I did this trail with a few friends and my baby (8mo) on a backpack. It’s perfect to feel like you are deep in the wild but it’s actually very close to the city. Nice combination between dense trees and open meadows. Bugs are in once you stop so bring repellent.

More enjoyable in winter than summer.

Great Trail. Good work out, but not too hard. Gets steep near the top. 3.5 hours return with breaks along the way to soak in views and eat huckleberries. A Moma bear and her cubs are calling the area near the top (just past the rope) home.

This is a relatively easier hike. The elevation gain is steady. It took us about 4 hrs round trip including long break on the summit. Nice 360 degree views from the summit. Luckily not many bugs in the morning.
