Not as nice as I expected. Pretty wet trail and not really much of a vista even at the picnic table. Fairly boring. There wasn't anyone really on the trail compared to Shades of Death which is a more scenic, shorter, and popular trail.

Great hike with a nice picnic area at the top. Beautiful view of the river and very easy, strollable hike with the dogs. The first turn isn't marked, but other than that, it was a well marked trail

Nice little hike that has a some nice views along the trail to an overlook of the Lehigh river. Definitely was able to see more during this time of year without leaves on the tree. Trail is relatively easy to follow in the snow and if you're looking for a short hike to get you out of the house this is right up your alley.

Very nicely kept trail and was easy to follow. Decent views at the top otherwise it was mostly wooded. Not too difficult.

Very nice trail, veered off midway, no people, no noise, just nature. Perfect for two almost mid 70's people!

Beautiful hike at Hickory Run State Park. This is part of a series of trails you can walk for hours. Got to the Skyline from Gould trail which is where the directions took us to. Just follow Gould and it will take you to Skyline. Definitely going back to explore more of the trails there.

It was okay. There were beautiful spots but overall not extremely exciting.

There are a whole bunch of trails intersecting on this side of Hickory Run State Park. From the parking areas it's typical woodsey surroundings. Some of the trials are wide before getting to the steep parts. The Skyline and Fairline Trails go pretty much hand in hand. There are a few places where you go into tree cover, but the majority is open when you are on the side of the mountain overlooking the valley. There are some steep rocky sections too. Overall I would call this a medium to hard trail because of the climbs, but it's not a long trail. The views were pretty spectacular.

Parked on the fireline trail and picked up the skyline trail from there. Great views of the Lehigh in the early spring. Also picked up the fireline again at the end and went for a detour on it down to the railroad tracks. Interesting trail, scenery changes quite a bit. Not too many stretches with a lull in them.
