Only by Nevada standards can these two streams be referred to as rivers, but what the North Twin and South Twin rivers lack in volume, they certainly make up for in vibrancy, drama, and wonder. These twins share a family resemblance, both winding down narrow gorges, overshadowed by towering cliffs rising abruptly from the valley floor and piercing the deep blue sky with jagged pinnacles and serrated ridges. Also, both streams roar down their respective canyons in resounding cacophony, through numerous cascades, swirling pools, and churning cataracts. Subtle differences between the two canyons do reveal themselves during the course of the loop. North Twin flows down a narrower canyon, while taller and more interesting cliffs appear in the canyon of South Twin. While both rivers support healthy riparian vegetation along their banks, particularly in the lower reaches of the canyons, North Twin holds the lusher environment. With their similarities and differences, the North and South Twin rivers are two precious siblings, highlights of the Arc Dome Wilderness.
