Ascent Trip Report

Solo hike to N. Twin, S.Twin and Galehead back to N. Twin Trailhead. Started at 7:22 and finished 1:15 (4 hrs. 53 min.). I ran on the flats and on some downhill. Kicked book time's ass.

Distance 13.80 mi
Time 9 hr 37 min
Elev Gain +5399 ft
Elev Loss -5399 ft

The trail starts off relatively flat until the last river crossing. The crossing had low water level so it was easy. Once you cross the river it is a staedy climb to N. Twin. There was a mist in the air and the vegetation was wet. It looked like it had rained the night before. Once on top of all summits it was foggy with no visiablity. On my way down I ran into a few groups including the two gentleman I met at the trailhead who were preparing for a three day backpack. The sun finally came out after I left the N. Twin summit and stayed out until I was done with the hike. I got a nice view on the last overlook before the trees obscure any kind of view. When I got back to the parking lot, there were many more cars.
