Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Water was a little high on the Little River; the first two crossings looked iffy so we bushwhacked on the east bank. The third crossing was tricky but doable with limited wading. Wish I had brought the gaiters. Stream crossings after the Little River were very manageable.

Comments
Comments: Beautiful day for hiking. The trek up North Twin Trail was very uneventful save the third crossing of the Little River (the water level was a little high due to rains two days prior). Skies were clear at the Summit of North Twin, but the wooded summit area offered only limited views of South Twin and the Presidentials/Northern Whites (and perhaps even the Greens FAR in the distance). Trek across North Twin Spur also uneventful (though muddy). South Twin was clear, and not too crowded. There was a couple already there when we arrived, and two folks hiking the NH AT passed while we took pictures and rested. The views on South Twin were absolutely amazing--among the best I've seen in the Whites. The hike out was also uneventful, though I chose my footing poorly on crossing the Little River and almost took a swim. Our vehicle and dry socks were a welcome sight at the end.
