Hike the Skyline Drive Trail

11.4 miles 2421 ft gain  - Out-and-Back Trail

Added by The Outbound Collective

The Skyline Drive Trail is a 11.4 mile hike in Corona, CA. The hike features a cave and scenic views of the Pacific Ocean.

This trail is shared by hikers, mountain bikers and trail runners. Rock climbers can find areas to boulder off the trail. Bring lots of extra water as this trail is rather dusty and can get very hot. This is a good training hike for those looking to do some backpacking. 

The trail is open year-round and dogs are allowed. On clear days (after it rains) you can see the ocean and Catalina Island from the top.

Beware of Car Break-Ins

While the hiking was great, the fact that the parking along Foothill Blvd is extremely prone to break-ins make this a "never go here again". Broken glass along the parking shoulder, and yes, my car was broken into when I hiked it.
