Time to do the twist
Mountain biking can be dangerous - please know your skill level and be appropriately prepared with PPE before starting any trail.
This trail is also open to dirtbikes and other small OHVs - use caution, especially around blind corners.
This short stretch of the trail takes you from the Third Flats road along the margins of Third Flats and to the junction of the Short Shot Connector trail.
The hike starts at the Third Flat trailhead in the southern part of the Little Park area. It follows the same track as the Second Thoughts trail for the first fifty yards or so before diverging at a signed intersection. Following the right-hand junction, the trail begins its gradual descent. Over the course of this trail segment, you will lose almost 200 feet of elevation as the trail gradually winds along the margin of Third Flats. Because this trail is open to ATVs, most of the trail is wide and easy to follow. Shortly before the junction with Short Shot, the trail crosses a low ridge and drops down into a drainage. This is the most technically challenging part of the trail, though it is by no means difficult. There is a signed junction as the trail starts to level out and bend to the right. Either continue straight to remain on Twist-N-Shout or turn right onto the Short Shot trail to connect to the short Nut-N-2-It trail which connects the Third Flats Road to Twist-N-Shout further north.
None, bring all you need.
This trail is rated Blue (Intermediate) for mountain bikers. This trail is also open to motorized traffic, specifically dirtbikes and other small OHVs less than 42" across.
