10/14/2017 We started out at the Ranger Station at about 830 in the morning. Nice and Chilly. Two adults and a 5 almost 6 year old. The adults packed all in and the kiddo packed her own water and sleep wear. Just one over night at Lower Twin Lake. The hike itself wasn't horrible. It was easy to moderate the majority of the way. Minimal complaints from the young one going in. More going out as there are two good sizes grades coming back out. Short though. Overall the was good. Not too bad for a day hike or evening packing in for a few days. Camping for Upper and Lower Twin lakes are decent. The East side of the lakes are best and more flat. The west side not so much. Plus in the evening when it cools down you'll have the sun for warmth much later than the west side. Overall, it was beautiful.
