The trail is closed now due to heavy snow. You cannot even drive your car to the trail head. You have to park your car in Paul Peak Trail head. It might open up when the snow melts in Summer.

I've hiked this trail for the last 13 years and love it more each time I go. I have also taken my family.

very rainy and ran into a bear on the trail! It's quite a different experience when nobody is around and it's foggy everywhere

Beautiful hike, amazing view! The last part of the hike is so awesome I can forgive the long time walking on an old gravel road. Do it!

Went last June and the view at the top is remarkable!

You would think there were trails in late June, but in 2010 snow was heavy and Paradise still had a base of about 10 feet of snow. Undaunted, with no visible trails, we had been here before and knew where Panorama Point was and knew where Pebble Creek was, so set off straight uphill in the snow! We saw others doing the same and some even were trekking up with skis and snowboards on their backs (great idea btw). The blue sky and bright white snow really made the scenery pop and hiking in snow is a great cardio workout. And when you start getting hot, you have a snowball fight or roll around in the snow. If you plant your feet going up and heel down coming down, the snow gives you some great footing. We really enjoyed it and had a blast. Try it in early June when you can get to the Paradise parking area.

An amazing hike with a rewarding view of 4 different mountains on top of Mt. Beljica, on a clear day.

Did this in early June. Followed the Skyline trail most of the way but made to just below the point because the snow was soft, unstable, and overused to make it any further. The views were amazing and you can see some other mountains in the distance, maybe Mount St. Helens. Go early so the snow is still firm.

love this hike it is an intense work out. if you have asthma(like me)a big warning bring your inhaler. it's an amazing hike but it is very hard on the lungs. the view at the top is extremely worth it
