Climbers' Access to the Heavenly Twins

Looking at the Heavenly Twins from Big Creek Lake

From the Stevensville turnoff on Hwy 93, drive south for 5.5 miles to Big Creek Road. (This is also known as Bell Crossing and there is a flashing yellow light.)

Turn right (west) onto the gravel Big Creek Road, then follow the signs to the Big Creek trailhead, approximately 4.5 miles from Hwy 93.

Less than a half mile from Hwy 93, the road makes a couple of 90 degree turns (right then left – north then west) before continuing for another mile where it reaches FR 738.

Proceed northwest on FR 738, then, at about three miles from Hwy 93, the road crosses the old Curlew Mine (open-pit) before continuing to a junction.

At the junction, bear to the right (northwest) and follow the road a short distance to its end.

The trailhead has an outhouse, several picnic tables, and lots of room for parking.

For information about the climbers' route accessed from this trailhead, see the link included in the picture's description.
