Beautiful but all uphill trail in the Crazy Mountains.

Beautiful hike , although when you start the switch backs at upper twin lakes the trail is moderately blocked with fallen trees. Once you get over tree line there are still substantial snow fields. We ended up bouldering a bit when we got off trail. There ARE cairns that we noticed on the way back down. But when you are in fields of rocks, stacked rocks are not super obvious. Regardless, stellar hike. Pack bug spray and most of the trail on the lower end is flooded with run off. Highly recommend water proof boots.
