Re: Hammersly Wild Area, Twin Sisters Trail
I hike the whole length of twin sisters trail from red ridge road to cross fork every bear season.. it gets hard to follow after you get through the "burn area"; which is a nickname for elk lick knob, the site of a massive forest fire in the 1960's...the trees never grew back, so its a whole hillside of switchgrass..beautiful view from that point.. but anyways, the trail is marked with new paint of a new color every year , but i doubt it will be done this early.. the marks were yellow dots on the trees to follow the twin sisters trail, if you start at red ridge and hike down, the trail rides the top of the ridges, so if you break east you will end up in elk lick hollow, and if you break west you will end up in hammersly fork. i believe hammersly fork starts right at the base of the "burn area".. definetly stop in at kinneys store in cross fork and spend the $10 on a topo of the short run quadrangle. it has everything you will be exploring along TSS. have fun & take a fly rod !
Vegetarians are cool. All I eat are vegetarians - except for the occasional mountain lion steak.
