Super quick trail with a nice view. The incline was steep but short, took us about 5 mins to get to the top. Would recommend for first-time hikers!

Nice short hike. Majority of the trail is the walking paths of Big Meadow Lodge. Excellent view at the top.

Harder than it may look. Beautiful waterfall if you can climb down to overlook the falls. Lots of rock scrambling.

Quick and absolutely worth it! The hike is essentially a straight uphill hike, but it was maybe 5 minutes bottom to top of the summit. And gorgeous views!

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.
