Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Took the established herd path to avoid the last 2 water crossings on the descent of the North Twin Trail (first and second crossings on the ascent). The one crossing had higher water levels and required a bit of planning and thought, but was still rock hoppable.

Bugs
Bugs: My hiking partner pulled 2 tics of himself; first was on Lend-A-Hand, second was on the North Twin Trail. Definitely do a tic check when you get home, at least until full winter conditions arrive.

Comments
Comments: Balmy weather with clear sky's. Did not feel like late Fall whatsoever. Very little snow remaining, except small patches at higher elevation in some sheltered areas. Traction/mircos were not needed.

This is a great loop and a good way to bag these 4 peaks, about 18.5 miles with about 5900 feet of elevation gain.
