Loved this trail and wish it wasn't so far from Los Angeles. Having grown used to riding the San Gabriels, where you pedal up for several miles and are rewarded with amazing descents, this was a welcome, but challenging change. Skyline starts off with a short climb and then winds it's way up and down flowy single track surrounded by amazing views. The trail has something to offer anyone who enjoys xc mountain biking: occasional rock gardens, small drops, burmed twists through forrested trails and switch-backed hillsides. I'm not used to riding at such a high elevation, nor riding over constant rollers, so the trail did leave me a little winded by the end, but definitely looking forward to visiting it again soon!

As a side note: I parked at Aspen Picnic area and rode through town to the trail head at the top of Club View Drive to make it a loop. I imagine it could be done as an out and back if you have that much time and energy.
