"Twin Lakes is a rewarding alpine destination, done either as a stand-alone day hike, as described here, or in combination with Lake Solitude. A favorite destination for many, Twin Lakes is now one large reservoir impounding water behind a massive concrete dam on the east end. This scenic area, rich in wildlife and breathtaking views, is encircled with evergreens and remarkable windswept mountain slopes. The rugged terrain surrounding the remote reservoir includes Twin Lakes Pass to the west and Mount Evergreen to the north. You’ll have overviews of Silver Lake along the route, as well as abundant wildflowers including showy daisy, Indian paintbrush, coneflower, and wild geranium."

I took the trail between Lake Mary and Twin Lakes Reservoir. It's beautiful there! The trail is what you expect a real "mountain trail" to be. Black dirt and pine needles, so soft to walk on. I was up there about 5 p.m. and there was lots of shade. The trail from Brighton to Lake Mary was busy, but I didn't see one person on the trail to Twin lake reservoir. There were bike tracks in the muddy parts, so if you are into mtn biking...., but I didn't see any today.
