Comments: We decided to hike UP the steep Twinway Trail instead of hiking down and we were happy with our decision. All depends on which you prefer. One hiker coming down as we were going up South Twin assured us the trail did NOT go into outer space. The views from the outlook off the trail to Galehead peak are spectacular. South Twin is underestimated! Amazing views! North Twin summit is on the little spur off the main trail at a little cairn before the view point.
