Twin Sisters Peak
Until the 1970s fire guards scanned a large region for the telltale smoke of a forest fire from the Twin Sisters Fire Lookout perched on the rocky peak. Some remains of the lookout can still be seen at this hike’s destination. Starting off in a lodgepole pine, spruce, and fir forest, the constantly climbing trail later winds through a beautiful limber pine forest. Higher still, it crosses alpine tundra. Scramble up the rock ridge at the top for a great view of Longs Peak and Mount Meeker.
