Awesome trail! As of July 2, 2017, we could drive up the dirt road to the parking lot. There is no parking at the trailhead (about .2 miles away).
After climbing the ridge, the trail opens into a beautiful alpine meadow, and then climbs again to the saddle overlooking Lake Catherine. Up to this point, I would call the trail easy to moderate. From there, the trail is much more difficult. It is both difficult to follow and quite scrambly.
To get to the summit from the saddle, just follow the crest of the ridge up to the first summit, then across the saddle to Mt. Wolverine.
One comment on the "loop": The southern side of the loop, the one to the right as you begin, is marked with a No Trespassing sign partway up the hill. Where it joins the northern side of the loop, there is a sign saying please don't use this trail. Next time, I will just use the left, northern side of the loop, and call it an out-and-back.

Good work out but ugly views. Didn't make it over the mountain as there was a bit of snow on the trail.

Current distance is 6 miles round trip as the upper road is closed. There is still snow most all of the way. Definitely a hard climb in the snow and trail is mostly covered. Good views of park city, lakes and barely SLC.

Neat highke

The first part of this trail, although snug and beautifully surrounded by trees, had me worried. i was out of breathe it seamed by my second step witch left me wondering "whyyyy?" iv been actively hiking all summer how can it be that i'm so winded? i'm going to go ahead and blame the overly huge, gigantic, up to my eye balls, lunch that i had just prier to my hike.
But it did not take long for the small snug trail to run into a wider path that led us up to a bigger clearing of wildflowers entering what seamed to be there last stages before being covered in snow this winter. the bees swarmed around what blooms where left and we even had the chance to take a few close pictures of them sharing with a butterfly.

Over all reaching twin lakes is a real treat because as you walk up the ridge all you can see is sky. only as you reach the very top is when you can see twin lakes and the mountains beyond that make up big cottonwood canyon. when i venture back to twin lakes i will defiantly come from little cottonwood canyon. ​
