Comments
Comments: Started around 7 at North Twin Trailhead, went to Galehead and back arount 1:30. The lot was almost full at 7, but there is parking on the roadside. Didn't look like the first crossing over Little River was hoppable, so I stayed on the east side until I had to cross, which was hoppable. Trail was in good shape, but it was pretty muddy between North and South Twin. Galehead Hut was closed, but had a spigot for drinking water outside. It was a really fun hike with great views.
