Lots of snow on the main trail to the Twin Sisters. Recommend waterproof boots and gaiters. Trekking poles highly recommended for more sure footing. About 50 degrees at the top with a stiff wind across a frozen lake.

First time to be up at the lakes with snow around them. Trail is muddy and snowy in different areas. Very beautiful and peaceful.

One of my favorite hikes. Good workout with gorgeous lakes at the end. Always buggy until September so make sure you have lots of bug spray!

Decent intermediate trail. Plenty of elevation gain to start but doable for most adults. I wouldn't recommend for young kids but teens can handle it. The big sister has some small rainbows and brooks but the scenery is better than the fishing. I suggest avoiding during hunting season, it's safer for you and less likely to disturb the hunters as well.
