This was a great trip to an area I have wanted to visit for along time. Rangers warned us of deep snow at higher elevations, however we only encountered one small, thin patch trailside. It is a beauttiful area, quite remote, with lots of solitude. On Memorial day weekend, we only encountered 2 two other peopl on the trail on day one, and no one on day two. The guide book emphasizes the numerous stream crossings. This cannot be stressed enough. There are no bridges, no logs, no rocks to step across. The only way is to wade through. While we were prepared for this with water shoes and sandals, we weren't prepared for the psychological or emotional aspect. The first day, in about 6 miles, we crossed the river over 20 times. The second day was about the same. You either end of hiking in your "water shoes" which takes a toll on your feet, or you hike in wet hiking shoes, which takes a toll on your feet. Or you change shoes at each crossing, which slows you way down, and takes a lot of time. The scenery is great, lots of aspens, cliffs, rock formations. The trail is faint in a few place in the South Twin River drainage. Mike White's guidebook for this trip is very accurate. Bruce Grubb's guidebook "Hiking Nevada" doesn't even mention the water crossings, which could leave some people ill prepared. Beginning at the North Twin trailhead is best, as starting from South Twin requires quite a climb, only to lose elevation. We did this trip in late May, I can't imagine doing this trip in July, or August as the heat would be too much. September or October might be nice, but I worry about the availability of water.
