Good warmup hike for the bigger ones in the park. Did this several times. Lot of switchbacks but really cool view from the summit
Nice winter outing and probably a good summer trail run. No views for me due to snow/clouds.
Good hike to acclimatize, and great views of the park
Fun hike with awesome views. The hike seemed like it went by very fast. In no time we had gone from the trailhead to the treeline.
My wonderful wife and I climbed the three highest summits of Twin Sisters Mountain: both of the Twin Sisters Peaks, plus the southern summit of Twin Sisters Mountain. We also climbed to the top of 'The Crags' on the way back.
With MikeyB. Twin sisters are nice, views abound, nice day to stretch the legs. Tagged N Sis but found a New Yorker talking of mountain stuff... would rather hear about city life than that silliness. Headed south to meet her twin. Made a direct ascent of the N rib (highly recommended) to add some scrambling. She's the shy one with less traffic. Good fun.
The skies were incredibly clear today, but the heat was oppressive (in my opinion). I enjoyed both summits of this peak, but certainly the higher, eastern summit was my favorite. It's a nice scramble to the top and the east summit is much quieter and more private. Climbing partners: Pat's CMC trip.
Years before I hike Twin Sistes with my brother from the old trail head, so now I have hiked it from both trailheads. Nice hike with great views of Longs Peak and the Continental Divide as well as the Mummy Range and the eastern plains.
Exact date is something of a guess. I was 16; this was a brief tune-up before Longs.
After wearing myself out on the Longs Peak Trail wallowing through deep snow with a pack full of rope and other technical gear, I gave up and decided to give Twin Sisters a shot. Although I was already physically drained, I did manage to climb both the East and West Sisters. It was very windy, but not too cold.
Great hike, with fantastic views of The Diamond on Longs Peak.
Windy and snowy, which made it more fun. Scrambled around the top on the 2 sisters. Fun day with Eric.
Sep 18 2005: Wife and I.
Oct 10 2010: Wife and I did all three Twin Sisters this time. Why are they twins if there are three of them?
Acclimation climb for Longs. Not certain of date.
Started from the old trailhead off of CO 7. Great view of Longs to the west.
Climbed this in the summer of 1992. There was a marmot who would practically eat out of your hand.
Continous uphill grade, though not so bad that one is out of breath. Good trail the entire way. Excellent views from the top, especially of Longs Peak and RMNP.
This was a very fun and relaxed hike. The condition of the Twin Sisters Trail is excellent all the way to the top. It took us 2 hours to get up and 1 down. I’d recommend any early start just to avoid the large number of tourists that start mid morning. Excellent views of Longs Peak on the way up, and great 360 views on top, as well as some bighorn sheep if you are lucky.
