Overview

A true adventure along one of America's most scenic byways and historic 4x4 routes, South Skyline Drive can be an endorphin overload all at once, or it can be slowly spread out over a few days. Very few trails compare to this 73-mile journey across 10,000-foot peaks, passing countless turquoise blue lakes calling for you to try their renowned trout fishing. With over 60 Waypoints in this trail guide, the journey can seem overwhelming. But don't worry. You can easily cruise across the mountains in a stock 4x4 and only worry about where to camp for the night. Or you can choose to reserve the ultra-cool Sealy Ranger Cabin to stay in a rustic cabin high in the mountains, with your family, all by yourself, or with your favorite overland crew. A memorable experience that can only be had along South Skyline Drive.
