We start from the Vista Lake viewpoint, where we quickly lose an elevation of 120m to Vista Lake. Then we gain an elevation of 600m over the next 3.6 km to Arnica Lake, which is backed against the cliffs of Storm Mountain. The trail continues over Arnica summit to Twin Lakes, reaching Upper Twin after a steady 1.4 km descent. This is the scenic approach to Twin Lakes.
This trip is best suited to strong/fit hikers as there are prolonged steep sections on this hike.
