Great trail for beginners. Plenty of areas for photos. Amazing range of scenery from desert hills to dense forest. View from the top is incredible! Plenty of areas to stop and take it all in.

Rather mundane and best avoided if you don't like crowds of weekend riders.

Pretty easy and quiet trail (during the week at least). It's a nice spot to get lost in, not that that is easy to do.

First time taking my suv off the road! Great trail that was well maintained with a variety of views. Just getting to the trail itself was beautiful. Vast rocky hills at jawbone canyon with plenty of dirt bike and atv trails. The climb isn’t too steep in any areas. Plenty of places to stop along the way. The views are spectacular. Early January was perfect. Brisk air with a few piles of snow at the very top but no icy patches. Takes a while to complete this drive and the end point is a dead zone, so be sure to get directions home ahead of time!

Got it off the PCT in 2017. Awesome summit with a cool rock chair that you get 360 views from. Really hot and no water. Bring some. Keep an eye out for the ducks off the pct to get to the summit.

This is a very relaxing, easy dirt road drive, with options. It is not unusual to see bear, and deer. There are plenty of photo ops, as the scenery is incredible. You may pass one to five cars on the 3.5 hour drive. Sure, you could probably do it faster, but I have never completed the drive without making several vista, and hiking stops!!!!

With a 2,000' elevation gain, according to my GPS, the Skinner Peak trailhead from Bird Springs Pass crosses the Pacific Crest Trail to Walker Pass, heading northeast. It is the highest southern peak on Scodie Mountain range. In the beginning the sandy side canyon trail has a trail-register box followed by numerous switchbacks that brings you to the rocky saddle. At approximately 4.1 miles be on the lookout for a hoodoo on the left that leads to the short uphill climb to Skinner Peak. Geological marker is on the southward rock outcropping when you reach the top.

This is an awsome trail its on the Pacific Crest almost all the way until you reach a duck route and then its a short cross country route to the peak which has awsome views of the Sierras to the north and the San Gabrial and the Tehachappi Mtn to the south and the Panimint Range to the east and the Piute Mtns to the west, go on a nice clear day and you will see them.
