    Route Description for Sky Country Trail

    The Sky Country Trail is a moderate hike through a wooded area and up Wilderness Peak that makes for a lovely day in nature. It doesn’t get very busy despite its waterfall and views. Try visiting when the fall colors are at their best.

    Begin from the parking area. Take the trail in the middle and go straight through a convoluted junction onto Old Man’s Trail. Stay on this trail as it merges to become Cave Hole Trail, then take a left onto Bypass Trail. Cross the creek and stay right through two junctions. Now on Shy Bear Trail, keep left at Shy Bear Pass to ascend Wilderness Peak. Descend the peak and return to the trail to retrace your steps.

    Getting to the Sky Country Trail Trailhead

    The trailhead for the Sky Country Trail is off the main parking area on 166th Way SE.
