The fastest trail you will ever do! It only took a few minutes but it was a really nice view. If you’re looking for a longer hike, connect to Lewis Falls Trail from there and do the 2.8 mile loop. You can’t access this trailhead directly from Skyline but if you turn in at Big Meadows you can access the trailhead from the lodge parking lot.

Not really a hike, but a glorified walk to a viewpoint. That being said, it's an incredible viewpoint! Super easy, great for little kids and folks who don't like a long hike.

Short, uneventful walk, but a great view at the end!
