Park here and start off on the Skyline Trail. Check out the trail map sign board to find out where it is. The trail is very easy to follow and there are a lot of signs along the way to guide you around the loop. The trail runs roughly parallel to the Reservoir Trail and Mountain Bike Loop, which are both designated as multi-use.
