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!

I did this hike in late July 2014 with my 3 teenage sons. The trailhead is to the left as you walk up the road and starts at the park service sign (also on the left). The trail is very rocky all the way up and I would recommend sturdy hiking boots and also hiking poles. The trail is fairly... More

Challenging hike because of the incline but the elevation is spread out over a vast amount of land. I felt it was difficult in some areas but not overwhelming. This was one of my first hard hikes. The top was great with room to roam around and climb the peaks (rock scramble). Awesome photo opps. Took us 2 hours going... More

This year was the second time we have climbed up Twin Sisters. It was a little more difficult this time, because the flood from last September 2013 washed away parts of the trail. We actually had to walk over the dried mud slides and make our own trails. My husband, son-in-law, and me climbed the Twin Sisters together this year.... More
