Skyline Trail, Mt. Rainier NP - August, 2009
Important sign here indicating that the the rangers feel using the Lower Skyline Trail across the snow to continue on Skyline is ill-advised. Hikers can use the High Skyline Trail or turn around. Despite this warning several people used it without poles and seemed to do fine. The advantage is the saving of time and effort.
