      Upper is a Canadian blue. Steep, chunky..not a typical flow trail you take a beginner to. Bottom is flowy and fast.

      Awesome trail with tech on top and flow on bottom a little hard for a blue but tons of fun.

      Top half of this trail is definitely rated on the Canadian scale instead of the American scale...

      I rode skyline this week for the first time. Haven’t seen a ton of reviews so this will be somewhat detailed. I parked in the lower mountain parking lot on North Mountain road. It’s about three miles past the skills park up a good gravel road. I was solo, so I rode North MountIn road up to the trail head. It’s not that steep, but the trade off is it’s a long way, about 8.5 miles. It took me just shy of two hours to make the climb. There was still snow at the higher elevations as of mid-May, so had to hike-a-bike for the last few hundred feet. The trail is well marked. The upper 2/3s or so was steep, with only a few technical sections. I wouldn’t really call it a flow trail though—there were only a few places you could really let go due to the steepness. The bottom third opens up and you can carry more speed. The trail is narrow at some points, with banked turns, although the banks are not that big. There is some mild exposure at a few places. It’s a blue rated trail, but more challenging than other blues I have ridden at Tiger Mountain or Galbraith. Over all I rate it 4 stars. Better as a shuttle than solo—the ride down took me 35 minutes. Not a great ratio for a two hour climb.

      Sweet and savory blue with a touch of cayenne pepper. If your teeth aren't covered with sweet Washington dirt by the bottom from smiling, you should sell your bike. This trail will teach you how to love.

      This trail is insanely sick. The faster you go, the better it gets!

      One of the best blue trails I’ve ridden. Lots of variety, some tech, some jumps, some flow.

      Possibly the sassiest blue run anywhere. This is the real deal!
