Twin Sisters:   D/R/E: 7.6 miles - 2,373 elevation gain
Hiking Distance Is The Total Length Of The Hike

The hike to this summit in a corner of Rocky Mountain National Park is justifiably popular for its magnificent view of famous Longs Peak. The hike to Twin Sisters, full of switchbacks, is quite popular. Much of the route lies in a detached, southeastern segment of Rocky Mountain National Park. The trail is clear and provides a gradual ascent to two adjacent summits with excellent vistas. Along the way, there are occasional, teasing glimpses of Longs Peak, and above timberline, there are good views of Estes Park to the north, but the show-stopper comes when topping out on the summit with a magnificent view of the famous East Face of Longs. This also makes a pretty hike in the fall when aspens of the Butterfly Burn, the peculiar-shaped site of an old fire, put on a remarkable display on the western slopes of Twin Sisters.
