Climb the Twin Sisters trail in and out of forest with sporadic views of the continental divide.  The summit is above treeline with absolutely spectacular views. The west summit is the most popular destination with an optional climb over to the east summit depending on weather, conditions and group.  This is a high elevation hike;  please email leader for signup at r2d2quinn@aol.com




Notes

Had a perfect weather day for hiking up Twin Sisters!  All participants were carrying all the necessary equiment for a successful summit of Twin Sisters.  Had one no show.  We did not wait longer than the 5 min stated in the trip meeting email sent out.
