"Hikers have long regarded Twin Sisters Peaks on the east side of the Tahosa Valley as a high platform from which to view higher wonders. On the eastern edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, Twin Sisters is (are) a ridge of confusing plurals. On the same map you’ll see the name Twin Sisters Peaks at three high points along a whole ridge named Twin Sisters Mountain. Travelers along the Tahosa Valley may care little about exactly what to call Twin Sisters when visual attention naturally pivots west to the gigantic glory of Longs Peak. Hikers, though, wind back and forth up Twin Sisters to surmount a viewing platform from which to admire higher hiking goals." Read more
"These are the two easternmost summits in Rocky Mountain National Park. Their position gives hikers awesome views of Longs Peak and Mount Meeker, and tiny Estes Cone. You can also see a more distant view of the Continental Divide in Rocky Park. This gradual ascent is a fun climb with minor rock scrambling for the final summits. It is a great family summit."
