       Hey man, i have been on the skyline drive that is north of that and its just a dirt road. Im assuming the south skyline is a dirt road as well. Prettty cool looking country though if you were just looking for a cross country bike ride or bikepacking trip could be cool. Spots all along the way for camping.
