The trail can be fairly rough at times. There is a large section of switchbacks that washed out during the flood of 2013. Once you cross over the washout you have to go straight up the mountain in several places. Once above treeline you still have a little bit to go, however the views once you summit are worth every...

This was an absolutely gorgeous hike of about 8 miles round trip and 3000 vertical feet up and down. Stunning veiws and the top is 360. It's also referred to as The Twin Sisters trail. The hike was recommended by the Cheley Camp staff....thanks!

This is a moderate difficulty hike. The trailhead offers decent parking if you arrive early (I was there at 0600). In the trees, rocky with lots of switchbacks. Generally easy to follow. Exception can be after initially crossing the landslide piece, but take your time. Once you clear the treeline, great views. However, the last 500 ft of elevation are... More

I did this hike one time just so I could go on a longer hike with the Y and will not ever do it again. Too many switch backs and rocks!! I like hikes that are lush and have lots of water. This hike is not that.

The trail to the summit of Twin Sisters is a long and continuous uphill hike. The route is surrounded by fairly dense lodgepole pine for most of the time. Although pleasant, the views within the forest don't change much for the first 75% of the hike and ... I hate to say it ... the never-changing scenery might seem a... More

I liked this trail. It is not the easiest one, but not to hard. Most of the trip you are in the forest (so not under the sun). There are lots of great views along the road. Go ahead and try it.

This was a challenging hike for us. The trail length is 7.2 miles round trip which is about as far as our old feet like to hike at one time. The beginning elevation is 9,100 feet and peaks at 11,400 feet. We live at 1,120 feet and even after 10 days above 7,000 feet, we apparently had not acclimated at... More

We returned to this hike, after completing it as a first summit achieved in 2010. The hike is pleasant and rocky, with continuous upward switchbacks. It's really not an easy hike, although many were younger and faster than we were. This year, 2014, we found that there was a mud slide that took out part of the mountain and trail... More

Definitely worth the exertion! The views at the top were amazing! People on the trail were encouraging and the animals who photo bomb you will have you smiling!
