Description

A trail from Twin Lakes into the Hoover Wilderness.

This ends just past Hose Creek Pass, where the trail gets steeper in places.

This is my estimate from online maps, I do hope to visit this in person to flesh out coverage of this popular route to Matterhorn Peak.

Difficult trail with packs. Many steep areas scrambling up scree and boulders. Beautiful area, well worth the effort
