It seems like the majority of these reviewers went to Hidden Peak, but I went up to the Twin Peaks. The trail leading to hidden peak was great with plenty of good views. However the trail leading to the twin peaks was difficult to see and extremely treacherous if you use the ridge trail (I do not advise this one as there is loose rock everywhere and the sides are shear). There's another trail on the backside of the peaks but you have to drop a lot of elevation and then climb up some steep switchbacks. This trail is easier to follow and much less treacherous but about 2 miles longer. The peaks were nice but definitely a strenuous hike.
