Comments
Comments: Parked at 7 Dwarfs and took Little River Rd, across the bridge, then left onto herd path. There is a sign marking the left turn ("Trail"). Haystack Rd was packed down with recent snowmobile activity. A dusting on top of a couple inches of snow at North Twin Trailhead. Depth gradually increased to about 12-18 inches at the top of North Twin. Put on spikes just before 3rd crossing of Little River. Crossing was easy on bare rocks and some snow/ice-covered rocks. Water level low. Spikes helpful ascending North Twin, not enough snow for snowshoes until nearly reaching the ridge. Snowshoes definitely needed for the N Twin spur between N and S Twin, snow depth 18+ inches, with drifts of 30-36 inches in places. Surprised at how much snow there was up high! Saw one other hiker who turned back after N Twin and another hiker who had hiked Garfield-Galehead-S Twin and was on his way to N Twin.
