Skyline Trail to Panorama Point

  • (360) 569-2211

The Skyline Trail is perhaps Paradise's best-known and most-traveled, and with good reason. Hikers in the summer and snowshoers in the winter take to the trail that offers breathtaking views, and enough vertical climb to ensure you feel the distance. The 5.4-mile portion of the trail from the Jackson Visitor Center at Paradise up to Panorama Point is a challenging 1,700 feet of elevation gain, but the payoff is all in the name: Layer upon layer of mountains unfolding into the distance in a panoramic view that on a clear day offers glimpses of Mount Hood, Mount Adams, and Mount St. Helens. During the summer, a similar route becomes a 5.0-mile snowshoe to Panorama Point from the Jackson Visitor Center.
