We hiked the Twisted Sister then used the Horse Tale Trail to get back to our starting point. It was a good hike, not difficult but definitely a good challenge.

Very slippery! Weathered granite the entire way. Bring your poles. I slipped a dozen times and would have landed eight of them had I not had my poles with me. This is a mountain biking trail, so be careful for bikers. The trail hairpins a lot, giving you constant views of Red Mountain.
