First of all, this trail is not a loop from the Davidson River Rec area and is not 7.2 miles. We used the ranger station map to get to the trail head at Buckhorn Gap. We noticed on the map that if we got on the trail at Clawhammer Cove, just before BG, we could make a counter clockwise loop hike to the falls and add some distance. In reality, Twin Falls trail is an out and back of 4 miles from the BG trailhead. Getting on at Clawhammer Cove, about .2 before BG on the same access road, then picking up on Clawhammer Road, we could then run back in to Buckhorn Gap to the falls. That ended up making a nice loop of almost 6 miles. As we were walking back from the falls we found several nice spots get in the water and cool off before we got back to the car. Also, the falls are not marked well so be on the lookout for a short spur trail that will take you to them. You will hear them, but in summer they are hard to see without taking the spur. All in all, this loop route was very pleasant and not difficult at all. All of the trails were marked and we had no difficulty finding our way. We did this on a Monday and only saw 2 other people.

Loved this hike! I opted for the 4.5 mile hike that begins on the Avery creek trail (as opposed to the 7 mile loop hike). This trail was marked extremely well and followed the creek most of the way. There was even a mini waterfall with the perfect swimming hole near the beginning of the hike that provided us with the perfect way to cool down. I would definitely recommend this one!

Wanted a moderate trail to test out our new backpacking gear and this one was perfect! Incredible foliage and rhododendrons blooming. The creeks were beautiful and the falls were amazing. Found a nice little campsite off the Avery Creek Trail. Would definitely come back to this trail again!
