Water Crossing Notes
Water Crossing Notes: Used the bushwack coming down North Twin trail to avoid first two crossings. They would have been rock-hoppable, but why bother. The bushwhack is well defined, and in better shape than some trials in the Whites. It does have about a dozen blow-downs though.
