Comments: The trails were wet after a few hard rainstorms in the days prior. The first two river crossings were completely impassable, though there is a nice herd path that can easily be followed, which reconnects with the North Twin Trail, allowing for only one water crossing (which is the third crossing noted on paper map and guide book) The one water crossing that you must do in order to continue on trail required us to take off our boots and wade across in knee deep water through a strong current. I would not have risked this pass if I were solo. Aside from the river crossing, which added more than an hour to our trip, the trail was beautiful. Lots of running water down the trails, but the rocks were not terribly slippery for the most part. Some muddy areas, mostly avoidable.
