Details

The "other" Twin Sisters (not the well known RMNP summits) is a forested peak in the Boulder foothills just north of Gross Reservoir.  From the Walker Ranch Open Space TH we hike north on the Meyers Homestead Trail for about 2.5 miles to a large meadow.  We then go west off trail and steeply up to a ridge which may require scrambling.  After that the grade softens to the summit.  We return the way we came unless we want to try another way down from the ridge.  The off trail part of this trip is exploratory.  Apparently CMC has done this peak before but using a much shorter approach from the south.
