A strenuous gradual climb from Lower Twin Lake, however the summit down to Frog Lake is very steep and has a lot of rocky debris. This trail is more difficult than moderate. If you leave from Frog Lake prepare for a steep climb.

There is a lot of debris on the trail after the winter, and it was a pretty exposed trail for a hot day, but it was a great and short strenuous hike up to the butte. We didn't do the extra 1/2 mile to the Butte and instead headed to twin lakes, which was a great hike. Made a great loop for about a 7-mile moderate hike.

Good: few people, strenuous ski up and down, recently groomed, some real nice views
Not good: shared with snowmobiles (tho we only saw a few as they were leaving), hwy 26 traffic noises
