My wife and I started at the TRT trailhead midway up Ward Creek Ave; this route has an unnecessarily long approach and was too gradual for my taste; however, the views were great on the upper mountain. I would recommend this route to someone who loves strolling in the forest but not in late summer as the meadows were all dried up when we did it.

After dayhiking Tinker Knob, ran over and did Twin Peaks-even though the summit seemed far away from mt. stanford, hike up took much faster than expected, did with mt. Stanford. GREAT views!

Hiked Twin Peaks from Barker Pass after hitting Barker Peak. Nice cool day in Tahoe to beat the extreme heat in the valley.

Hiked via the Stanford Rock route up 15N3S and descended via the Tahoe Rim Trail. We found the Stanford Rock-Twin Peak loop to be 14 miles if doing both the Twin Peaks. Group of 7 reached the summit. 3 did both Twin Peaks.

Tried going from Blackwood Canyon Road, but it was still gated shut and snowcovered. Drove over to Alpine Meadows (backside closed) and started there. Signs in the small lot warned of towing if not in the Alpine Residents HOA, luckily no issues. Went up via the saddle between Twin/Stanford. Down a more scenic/enjoyable route, along the ridge north from Twin to 8522 and down to the car.
