Comments
Comments: The trails on this hike were all broken out with some heavy drifting nearing summit of North Twin as well as the North Twin spur to S Twin. Some of this drifting covered the trail completely but still manageable. From South Twin to Galehead hut was in great shape as well as the Frost trail. Garfield Ridge trail was pretty well packed as well as Gale River trail. Highly recommend snowshoes for this hike.
