Twin Lakes Professional Review and Guide
"This short hike, which leads to a subalpine lake basin on the western slopes of the Sierra, features ice-sculpted landscapes, cool forests, vigorous streams, and good trout fishing. Kaiser Ridge is a major east-west divide rising north of Huntington Lake on the west slope of the Sierra. Much of this broken, 10,000-foot ridge is protected within the boundaries of the 22,700-acre Kaiser Wilderness, an isolated island of high country rising far west of the High Sierra. This easily accessible wilderness area contains two dozen high lakes, alpine crests featuring far-ranging vistas, and enough backcountry trails to satisfy both day hikers and long-distance backpackers alike. The subalpine Twin Lakes basin is one of the most scenic spots in the Kaiser Wilderness, set beneath the splintered granite crest of Kaiser Ridge. Unless you like lots of company, avoid this hike on holiday weekends."
