Overview
This is a short segment of the Continental Divide Trail to a nice overlook between two peaks (Twin Sisters)


As with most hikes in the forest, there isn't a lot of opportunity to get really good views, but your destination has a great view that makes the hike worth the effort.

Hike
Most of this trail has a pretty good grade going between 10-16%, but there are some segments where it levels out. Since this is part of the Continental Divide trail, it is well-traveled and easy to follow. Parts of this trail appear to follow an old road.


Follow the main trail for most of this hike. At about 4.3 miles in the hike, there is an unmarked trail that heads up the side of the mountain. The trail up the mountain is quite steep (30% grade) but only about 0.13 miles. Once up this section, you will find yourself between the Twin Sisters, with a great view of the area.
