Initially the Skyline trail comes up from the west just off of Dallas road and snakes its way up to some views that are on the north side of the mountain before crossing the service road (at about the one mile mark) and then moves to the south side of Badger mtn where is goes for 1.2 miles before ending on the eastward extension of the service road. From there, one can follow the service road back up the mountain until connecting with the Canyon Trail route
and a nice traverse of the mountain. This view is at about 3/4ths of a mile up from the Dallas road TH, looking towards Rattlesnake Mountain to the west.
On a clear day, Mt. Rainier can be seen to the left. Spring is passing into summer on this shot.
