Hiking Trails


The Skylake trail system was designed to give hikers a continuous primary trail from Woodbrier on the north extending 5.6 miles to the summit of Grimes Nose on the south.

Through the years secondary trails have been added to the primary, e.g. Sid's (McKnight) Slopes (Deerpath to Woodbrier), the path alongside the pasture fence, and the Chastain's Challenge trail. The total length of trails inside Skylake is now nearly 12 miles.

Although the trail system utilizes green belt area almost exclusively, it does in a few places pass close by existing homes. Please respect the privacy of your neighbors and remain on the pathway.

The primary trail system is divided into 8 segments which begin and end where the trail crosses a paved road, which allows a hiker to access the trails at many locations, called "trailheads", and to complete a shorter or longer hike, as desired.

The footpath is generally easily recognizable and well-traveled but it is also marked by white blazes of 2" x 4" at eye level on trees. Further guidance is provided by trail signs along the trail where the trail makes a sharp turn or intersects another trail.

Points of interest along the way include York Falls and picnic area, York Creek, Upper Lake, Red Barn, pasture, Bonnie's Bottoms, Lower Lake, and the Observation Tower on Grimes Nose.
