We'll start from Paradise and hike the Skyline trail. It can take anywhere from 3 to 5 hours. It is a strenuous hike going up the loop. Along the top of the loop and the descent it's not as strenuous. The view is worth it though!
The Paradise parking area fills up quickly on weekends, so we'll do our best to get there early enough to park.
There shouldn't be a whole lot of snow to worry about - normal hiking shoes should suffice.
This is my favorite of all hikes! I really enjoy it and am looking forward to sharing the experience!
