Avenues Twin Peaks  Sucess!

There were giant illuminated Olympic rings on the Avenues Twins during the 2002 Winter Games. I remember some people were concerned about possible environmental damage the rings may cause, but when I went up there in May 2002, I could see no damage at all.

Easy Going  Sucess!

I was going to wake up early to do a harder peak, but woke up late. I still wanted to get out, so I decided to do the Twins. Started from 650 E and 18th Avenue. Very easy hike. Offers great views of the mountains and of the city.

backyard workout  Sucess!

Have hiked there a few times from various starting points, and when I'm on a mountain-biking kick, I'll ride in the area almost weekly. Love the area and views. I live just down the hill from the Capitol, and have gotten stuck my head the aesthetic appeal of getting to a peak from my front door and back entirely by human power (no driving to a trailhead). So far this is the only peak I've done that for (it's 11 miles roundtrip, ~2000' vertical): spring 2009 by mountain bike (the easier method, obviously had to hike the last push), and now fall 2009 as a run (about 2 and a half hours roundtrip).

Avenues Twin Peaks  Sucess!

I've climbed this several times including at least once by city bus when my brother and I were 9-11 years old. We used to ride the bus and climb the foothill peaks (Ensign, Twin, Meridian) by ourselves.

April 18 1998

I climbed the peak with my siblings and with my father on our way to Black Mountain.

October 22 2022

My dad and I climbed the Avenues Twin Peaks from the Terrace View Trailhead, making a loop hike. It was rainy much of the time, but still a good hike.
