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.

What a Beautiful hike! Amazing view from Johns Rock..

Great views at the top.

Hard but so worth it! Most beautiful hike I've done.

Beautiful waterfall from mountain creek. Easy access , right on the road

Great hike in. Rougher near the top. With terrain and increased incline. Amazing. View and worth it when you open up on the summit

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.

Great hike! (Moderate to strenuous) Showed up at 1pm got the whole thing in. Was super windy and cold at the top but well worth it. Recommend coming in little warmer weather to spend more time at the top.
