This is my all time favorite place to be. This was my first backcountry hike and I fall in love with it more and more every time I go back. Paved trails and easy to navigate. I personally prefer Lower Twin, but Upper Twin is just as beautiful. Enjoy fishing in both lakes. I have also hiked the extra mile up to George which is a nice little lake too. I love this area. I absolutely recommend it!!!

Easy to moderate only because the snow at this time (11/26/17) made trekking more difficult as well as staying on trial as this was my first time attempting this trail. It took me an hour and a half at a casual constant pace with no breaks to reach the first lake. Beautiful scenery throughout as well as great fly fishing! Would definitely hike again!

Great trail. We’ve stayed at both upper twin and George Lakes. Both worth it, with great campsites and views. We made a YouTube video about it. Search Four Feet Up, George Lake. Hope you enjoy!

Great overnight with my family this past weekend. It's mid October and there is snow which made the trip more exciting for the kids. I was there earlier in the week for just a day hike and it hadn't snowed yet, so it was pretty fresh! The one thing that became a bit of a nuisance was all the horse poop we had to dodge along the trail. It was everywhere. If you go on an overnight, make sure you stay out long enough to do some star gazing!

This is a fantastic trail. Pretty consistent incline from the start but a mile in the middle that is decently flat giving a nice break. Tough as far as cardio goes when you have a 30lbs+ pack on your back. The entire trail is surrounded by pines, mainly shaded with a few places where the sunshine peaks through. There was already some snow on the trail. There are different trailheads the first mile so it was critical to pay attention to the signs. Nellie Lake was secluded and beautiful lined with pines. A few great places to set up camp next to the water.

Beautiful trail. Moderately difficult due to Potter's Pass. Both lower and upper Twin Lake are gorgeous. Plan for enough time to explore around upper as each side of the lake has great views! Always see dogs on this trail. There was still a lot of snow in July making the trail difficult to find at times but once the snow is clear it is very easy to follow the trail. Potter's Pass has a gorgeous panorama, perfect place to take a quick snack break.

I did this as a day hike in mid August and it was perfect! So many wildflowers along the trail and the lakes were beautiful. I definitely recommend going on to George Lake if you made it as far as Upper Twin, it's worth it! I'll absolutely be backpacking next time, I didn't want to leave!
