This trail has lots of down trees. Riding it will probably mean getting off and climbing over and through tree limbs.

Trail Reports

  • David Caplan September 12, 2016 at 10:19 am1 tree down on the north side, about 2/3rds of the way down. Be careful if you are hauling ass downhill… which is also a good idea because there could be riders climbing up that side.
  • Joe Myers July 18, 2016 at 1:25 pmclear of deadfall as of yesterday. Saw the crew working on it from PCTA and Waldo 100. Awesome! Still large snow patches on the North slope but still a great ride. Mosquitos are bad this year. Keep moving!
 

Trail Description

Beginning at Forest Road 5897, the Twins Trail begins a gradual ascent toward the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail #2000, which is reached in less than 2 miles. After crossing the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail, it begins to climb more steeply and heads east around the south side of Twins Peak. This trail takes the hiker through a dry mountain hemlock and lodgepole pine forest with areas of exposed rock and boulders.

After a scramble through pumice soils, the top of Twins Peak is reached for a spectacular view of the Waldo Lake area and including the Three Sisters and Diamond Peak. The trail continues on northward toward Found Lake and Gerdine Butte, but is sometimes difficult to locate. Upon reaching the forest boundary the trail number changes to #19, a Deschutes National Forest designation.
