No snakes seen today :) hiked it clockwise- first and last mile were the toughest with incline. Beautiful views

Beautiful day on the trail! No snakes to me seen on 04.14.2020 around 2-4pm.. But definitely be aware they like to be out around now

Only went in one mile into quartz mine. Started at Watson Rd trail by front entrance of skyline.. only 2.3 miles total with my toddler at sunset. Beautiful views only saw 4 other hikers.

This might be my favorite Skyline trail. Truly beautiful, yet challenging in that you walk on a mountain ledge for at least a mile. This really makes you focus. They rate parts of the hike as hard, but moderate+ is a better rank. Took me 2:15 as I dawdled in parts. If you hike it clockwise, the final climb just before reaching the trailhead is tiring!

The climb was challenging in parts but the views from the top made it worthwhile. Took us about 2 hours and 15 minutes to complete the loop clockwise.

It was a great Sunday afternoon hike for my two boys and me. The Quartz Mine trail alone isn't a loop, so to make a loop you need to link up with another trail. The end of it hooks up with Tortuga one way and a harder ridge the other way, or you can walk it back to the parking lot. We walked it back because my kids are still young, and they were already feeling it. Total down and back I think is around 5 mi. We spent a couple hours taking it easy. We would absolutely do it again.

This was my first time doing trail and trails app was on point. Definitely not for beginners in my opinion. Great views from narrow cliff trails. Looking forward to try again.
