Comments
Comments: North Twin trail is mostly flat with a slight upward grade. The FW trail begins on the left at 1 mile from the trail head. A 3" diameter tree in the middle of the trail with ax marks indicates where to turn left. Trail is well worn and easy to follow. There are 4 long switchbacks that make this former road evenly graded until you get near the top when it gets a little steeper. Near the summit there is a slight descent and then an ascent to the summit. No views on the summit.
