The Twin Bridges Trail winds through low, gently rolling ridges and hollows in a mixed hardwood-pine forest on the Little River arm of Lake Sinclair. The impoundment, a Georgia Power Company reservoir on the Oconee River, was built in 1953. The lake’s waters are in sight of the trail for most of the hike. The trail name originates from the pair of bridges crossing sections of the lake in quick succession on the road at the alternate trailhead. The hike begins at the USDA Forest Service Lake Sinclair Recreation Area campground. Because of the variety of forest and lakeshore habitat, this trail is an exceptionally productive birding area.
