With the Sierra Club  Sucess!

Hazy day, but this is an area with lots of interesting sights. Very volcanic looking. Got to drink from a cool mountain stream.

Several times with the dogs  Sucess!

Climbed multiple times in the past couple of years with the pooches. A nice Tahoe vantage point that lets you see all the high country around the lake.

From Blackwood Canyon Sno Park  Sucess!

A longer than expected hike form Blackwood Canyon Sno Park, connected to the TRT south of Twin Peak right before the switchbacks, climbed both of the Twin Peaks then descended cross country in a bit more direct route back to the road. Total of just over 13 miles. Very little snow, didn't even bother with snowshoes. In March. Sad. TR is HERE

Via Ward Creek TRT  Sucess!

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.

great views  Sucess!

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!

From Barker Pass  Sucess!

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

Blackwood Canyon Road  Sucess!

Headed up to the ridge between Stanford and Twin Peaks and then ascended to the summit of Twin. Fun day.

Via Stanford Rock-TRT loop   Sucess!

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.

Up from Alpine Meadows  Sucess!

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.
