Details

We'll hike on-trail nearly the entire way, first passing the Broome Hut at the 1 mile point, then continuing on to the Continental Divide, ending at the Twin Cones.  The intent is to hike to first the South Twin Cone, then traverse to the North Twin Cone.



Above the Broome Hut is all above timberline and should be quite beautiful and serene.
