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.
Great hike with a family, kids 11 and 13, we are fit but not regular hikers. Took about 4 hours, leisurely pace with plenty of detours to lookouts. Having done this in summer and winter I prefer winter. Better visibility, colors, and climate. When you see open granite outlooks, do it.
