Trip Report

     Mike and I started off at the North Twin trail a little later in the morning than usual. The beginning of the trail was very flat and dry. We were concerned about some of the river crossings but while they were quite wide, they were passable. We met a couple that had been at the Madison hut that we had remembered from our visit there and chatted with them on the trail for a while before starting the up hill. Very long steep relentless climb up to the top. The first view point was wonderful and offered a small breeze. We sat on a large rock and took some pictures before heading to the real summit. Very windy on the true summit but the lookout and views were wonderful. Had some lunch, took pictures, chatted with a Views member, and soaked in the sun before heading down. We went downhill at a jog and got to the car rather quickly. It was a very hot and humid day so we changed into bathing suits and jumped into the freezing cold river to cool off before driving back to the cabin.

The Good and The Bad

The Good:

The views.
The breeze/wind at the top.
Making friends on the trail.
Cooling off with a river swim.

The Bad:

No-See-Um\'s attacking us on the flat sections of trail.

The Drive

Drove from the cabin in Thornton to the trail head and back. Trail head was a little tricky to find, but we knew what we were looking for.
