Comments
Comments: My choice of this trail on this day was a poor one, given the conditions. North Twin Tr. was quite wet with running water in many places. Some of the steeper parts were more like a stream-bed than a trail. Although it was sunny and cool, the previous day was a washout. All of the streams were still running full, and the third crossing of the Little River required wading knee-deep in cold strong current.

The Spur trail between the two peaks was a little better, but there were large pools of water in the trail and lots of mud. I spent the entire day with cold wet feet.
