Departing from a neighborhood off Buffalo Mine Road, the Skyline trail climbs the foothills of Arkose Ridge. The trail overlooks the Matanuska Valley, with views of the Alaska Range and Tikahtnu (Cook Inlet) on a clear day. It is primarily a ATV trail, but makes a great hike if you don't mind the occasional mud pit characteristic of ATV trails. It becomes brushy and less distinct as it climbs, but one can chart their own course higher onto Arkose Ridge. It is likely used as a winter snow-machine trail as well.

There is no official trailhead - just a unsigned pull out. Follow the route in the app to stay clear of people's homes. Note - this trail has the same name as a different, popular hiking trail in Cooper landing.
