Great trail. Surprised to find the ranger station closed on the weekends. And the last bit of road to the trail head was closed (locked gate) so we parked at the lot by the horse stables and walked adding a little more mileage. The hike was beautiful.
Great trail and falls, the trail head for Twin Falls trail is well into the hike. The track depicted here starts at the stables. We followed the road we came in on (to the left) for a little over a half mile and then caught a trail to the right. From that point to the falls was a fun trail, crossing the creek several times, sometimes on stepping stones, but mostly on log bridges. This was a drought year, but the falls were still gorgeous. Taking the loop back, the first 1.2 miles is 95% uphill. Once you reach the road it is easy downhill on the road till you get back to the stables.
Finding the falls can be a little tricky. They are beautiful though and we were able to get really close.
Great hike and awesome falls! Drove up and down the gravel road looking for the "Twin Falls" trailhead --- never found it, so we accessed it from Buckhorn Gap. Mostly easy terrain, and the dog loved crossing all the creeks and bridges!
This trail can be an out and back trail of approximately 4.2 miles or longer if you add in other trails. Make sure when you get to the first of the "Twin" waterfalls that you go across it and view the second waterfall 20 yards further on! Twin Falls are two different waterfalls next to each other! And from either the Buckhorn Gap or Avery Creek trail, watch out for the pretty, smaller waterfall shortly after you get on the Buckhorn trail or on the return trip near the end. You should be able to hear it and then see it. Enjoy!
Twin Falls is accessible from Buckhorn Gap trail. It's not evident when you start off on Buckhorn but rest assured you will come across the Twin Falls trail. Very nice little trail with walkways over the creek along the trail. Very cool for a family "adventure".
Such a fun trail, watch for yellow jackets on the bridges!!
we couldn't really find the loop but trail is awesome and follows stream entire time
