Parked at Seven Dwarfs Motel, left them a $10 tip as I only had a 20, but happy to donate it to someone who's hiker friendly.
Quick walk up Little River road, bare left onto the private drive then left at the TRAIL sign. You're on Haystack Rd in no time.
Trail was in great shape! Snow shoes the entire way!
When I headed up, it was an unspoiled, perfect snow shoe track all the way to South Twin. On my way down, there were several barebooters churning their way up the steeps, but they weren't sinking in too bad.
River crossing was a cake walk- a few easy steps on the snow bridge that's forming and you're safe on the opposite side.
Slight breeze up top, but nothing a few extra layers couldn't handle. There was a beautiful undercast to go with the clear skies. The views were magnificent
