Post Twin Cone

Anyone know the conditions for Twin Cone off of Kenosha Pass? I was looking to do some wheeling/camping in early June. I went over Kenosha pass a few weeks ago and it looked snow free, but Twin Cone is quite a bit higher. Are the camping spots all part of a campground or can you find others on up that are first come first serve? Any fishing to be done up there? Any more info is great as this is my first trip on this trail. Thanks in advance.

J.D.

I haven't bee up there myself but I saw a report a couple weeks age that said it was wet and muddy with some snow higher up. They didn't make it all the way to the top but enoughwas passable to have fun.

Great, thanks Bill! Do you know if there are camping spots on the the trail or do you have to setup camp in the campground? If it's muddy, maybe we want to stay at the campgound???

I don't know about camping on up the trail but I would guess there would be some. The campground is probably going to be crouded this weekend. Get there early if that's what you want to do.

I was there today, and the trail was great! You can only get up to timberline because of the snow.

There is some limited camping along the trail past the campground (the campground is free by the way). The first 1/4 mile has some spots, a couple big enough for a good size group, then you hit private land. Past the private land there are more places to pull off & set up. Some are pretty nice, others not so nice.

95Finder - Thanks for the information! I think our group will be small, maybe three tents. Would you suggest taking the spots before the private property or after? Any of them near a Stream? That's good to know it's free, but I still prefer not to share my camp with strangers. I am sure you know what I mean.

Also are there any other trails on Kenosha? What is the trail straigh across hwy 285 heading West and what the other that heads West just off the North side of the Pass? Looks muddy to start, but may not be more than a dirt road.

There is a trail that more or less parallels US 285 from the Grant/Bailey side of the pass over to the County road that goes north (west?) out of Jefferson toward Jefferson Lake. Looks on the map that it is FR 810/811. It come out by Jeffersom Boundry Pinic Ground. I did it a few years ago and it was easy to moderate (3 or 4?).

The road up to Red Cone and Webster Pass is also in that general area but I would think the tops of both are still snowed in.
