Description

From Horsethief Meadow, follow the trail east and downstream along Horsethief Creek. After a half mile, the trail begins to climb the hillside to the north. The trail climbs steeply out of the canyon, reaches the top of a ridge, and drops quickly into Panchuela Creek. Over the next one and-a-half miles the trail climbs to the intersection with Rito Perro Trail 256. Skyline Trail turns north and begins the steep, rocky, and eroded climb to the top of the Pecos Baldy ridge. The rocky trail then descends the north face of the ridge to the lake and the junction with Jack's Creek Trail 257.

From the junction with Jack's Creek Trail, Skyline Trail continues north along Trailriders' Wall. This portion of the trail should be avoided during lightning storms and severe weather. After two and-a-half miles the trail begins a gradual descent near the junction with Rio Medio Trail 155. The trail continues north through the forest, passing obscure junctions with South Azul Trail 255 and Chimayosos Trail 246. After passing Truchas Lakes, the trail intersects Jack's Creek Trail 257 at its northern end.
