Details

Begin the hike at the barrier on the forest service road. hike up the road about 500 feet to the kiosk, turn left (east) to climb four switchbacks before joining an older established trail that continues to climb switchbacks to quickly gain altitude. At the saddle between the two sisters, turn right and head up the easy trail to the first summit. After the first summit, consider going over to the second peak, which requires a moderate scramble to the top.

Notes

This will be an exploratory hike for the leader, who has not scouted this trip.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
