Details

Located on an island of NPS property bordering Tahosa Valley. Part of the trail is National Forest too.Twin Sisters Mountain as several summits, but the trail leads to the second highest.The trail climbs steadily along switchbacks for 2,5 miles. As you climb through the dense forest you can see god views of Longs Peak to the southwest. After more switchbacks and the views of the Continental Divide the rest of the trail is above treeline and leads up several long switchbacks on the north side of the peak, There is a small scramble past the Historic Rock Cabin where the views in all directions are amazing.




Notes

Please bring the 10 essentials, trekking poles, traction devices- just in case, and lots of food and water. I will be sending out an email a few days prior to the trip. I will send email adddresses to people who may want to ride share from the Denver area. The ride share from Fort Collins is 9.00.

I did this hike on 5-5-19. There was a lot of snow at the top 11/2 miles. Hopfully most of it will be gone by June7th!
