Twin Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"The Twin Lakes Trail climbs through mixed forest, past flowerladen meadows, and over gurgling streams to a pair of popular lakes. Despite the name, these two lakes have little in common, aside from their proximity to one another, but they do provide pleasant and picturesque destinations for an overnight backpacking trip. Permits are often at a premium on weekends, and the first mile or so is a scorcher in full sun. It’s best to visit the wilderness office and start up the trail as early as you can. Dayhikers who do not feel up to the task of traveling all the way to the lakes and back will find the 2.6-mile journey to Cahoon Meadow a worthy alternative."
