The trail to Beehive Lake is 4.4 miles one way -- starts at an excellent trailhead and crosses a bridge before making an easy ascent. The North Twin is 7,607'. It is the peak directly beyond the end of the lake and not the one to the North or right (I made that mistake last year). The South Twin is not visible from Beehive Lake but becomes visible only when you reach the summit of the North Twin. I got a late start (10:45) but still managed to complete the summit, take a few photos and be back at my car by 3:15. Give yourself more time than that -- enjoy the journey and relax at the lake -- one of the prettiest I have seen in the U.S. Selkirks. The total distance to the summit (go to the left side of the lake) is about 12 miles car-to-car.
