Twin Lakes Reservoir Access Road Professional Review and Guide
"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."
