Skyline is a very fun beginner to intermediate jump trail. Nothing too high consequence but some jumps will tend to buck you forward. With 3 miles of berms, rollers, step ups, step downs, and table tops, this is the perfect trail for someone who wants to start getting air. There is a rock drop about one and a half feet a little bit further down followed by a step down. Be careful as you might almost go off it without knowing.

Access Info

       A beginner to intermediate rider focused trail. Jumps are all very mellow, nearly all tables with some very forgiving step-downs and step-ups. Most berms and high-wear spots are weatherproofed with cement pavers. This is a good, low-consequence trail to learn jumping. However, for more advanced riders looking to take the trail at speed, the jumps aren't the most predictable or consistent. Being one of the most popular trails on the mountain, traffic is common, and the trail is often closed due to down riders. (several times in the two days I was here)
