Twin Lakes Trail
May 24, 1992
Eight Obsidians and one non-member met at my place in Roseburg.
We were soon on our way up the North Umpqua River to a point about three miles past Dry Creek,
where the highway crossed the river.
There turn right on Rd. 4770 and follow it to the end (about 10 miles) to parking lot and trailhead.
The forested trail winds gradually up to the Lakes Basin, about 1¾ miles.
At the 1½-mile sign we chose to take the trail leading up to the cliff overlook where we sat
in the sun, had lunch and looked down on twin Lakes.
Also, from here you can see Mt. Thielsen, Mt. Bailey, Diamond Peak, and the Three Sisters on a
clear day — and we had that!!
I must say I never get tired of this beautiful view.
After lunch we went on up this trail about half a mile to another entrance coming in from the
Glide Little River area.
Then we went back down to the Twin Lakes where some got their feet wet, while others walked the
trail around both lakes.
The color hues in these lakes were fantastic on this sunny day.
Well, it’s time to leave, and we did: arriving back in Roseburg around 5:00 p.m.
I would like to thank all those on this trip, especially Sharon and Wes for their assistance on
the Eugene end.
Making this trip possible were: Gladys Grancorvitz Wes Prouty, Sharon Ritchie, Alys Riley,
Anne Montgomery, Marty Hathaway, Dave Predeek, Doris Allen, Llary Zang
and yours truly Lloyd Plaisted, leader.
