Details

This is a joint event (SM-DN). From Twin Owls Trailhead, hike W on trail to saddle between Dark Mtn and Lumpy Ridge. Descend to Bridal Veil Falls Trail to the connecting trail on the south to Gem Lake. Return to TH. Good chance of seeing bighorn sheep, wild turkeys and early spring wildflowers.  It is recommended that you bring slip-on traction devices (e.g. Microspikes) as there will be some icy places on the north side of Lump ridge.  Snowshoes will not be needed.
