Comments: Beaver Brook XC Ski Trail, Galehead River Road, Galehead River Trail, Garfield Ridge Trail, Frost Trail, Twinway, North Twin Spur Trail

Trail was in good shape. Trail broken out the entire way. Could be tricky to find trail from South Twin Summit to North Twin Spur Trail, if snow covers people tracks, but once on the North Twin Spur trail, it's a nice path the rest of the way. I wore snowshoes for the entire trip, but spikes would be sufficient right now. Only a few icy spots going up South Twin and North Twin, but had no problem getting up and down them with snow shoes on. Two main water crossings on Gale River Trail. Had to take care finding the right spot to cross, due to recent warm up, but it is possible to find rocks to get across both safely. Should freeze up and be fine with a few more colder days. Overall, a great trail if you need to get all 3 of these peaks.
