Route Description for Twin Lakes Trail

The Twin Lakes Trail is a wonderful moderate hike that can be enjoyed by most skill levels. This trail is easy to follow and scenic. You can admire the huge cedar trees and lush understory of the forest as you hike to the lakes.

Begin from the trailhead. The route climbs up the slope beside you, but it’s fairly gradual. After some gentle elevation gain, it evens out as it traverses the slope and follows the creek. Wrap around the northern leg of the slope and continue to follow along the creek. This will lead you to the lakes. You can walk along the upper shore of the first to reach the second. The trail ends here, so turn around and retrace your steps back when you’re ready.
