Ascent Trip Report

Ascended the North Twin Trail to the North Twin summit. I followed the herd path along the river rather than cross it until the very end. On the way down I was able to find the Fire Warden Trail, an unmaintained herd path leading to the summit of mount Hale. It was a very hot sunny day and I was gassed by the time I got up. I wanted to bag the so-called northwest peak but I didn't have in in me do bushwhack the thick brush by this point. There are tons of huge, healthy White Birth trees surrounding the Fire Warden Trail, which was great to see. This trail is not marked but enough people still use it that a pretty obvious path exists if you know where to look.
