North Twin trail follows fairly easy grades for the first half, and then you get whacked hard in the second half on a fall-line trail. You don’t get to hike the mountain you want. Rather, you hike the mountain you get.
The trio make for an easier trip than most. But that’s not to say that a hike up Tom, Field, and Willey is going to be without substance. There’s a lot to enjoy here, even if the clouds and fog have wiped out the view.
