North Fork Twentymile Trail #560

  

The first 0.5 miles of trail is on the old road bed. The trail begins in timber and maintains a steady uphill climb as it ascends the valley of Honeymoon Creek. Much of this trail burned over in a 2006 wildfire. The upper portion of the trail is above timberline.

Highlights: The two buildings on top are a study in comparative history. A modern lookout tower stands next to its 1920's counterpart - an old log cabin groundhouse. This lookout site is no longer staffed though it has a commanding view of the upper Chewack drainage. One can see the First Butte Lookout to the south. Specific Hazards/Difficulties: The trail has a southern exposure and can be hot and dry in the summer. Be sure to carry water or obtain it before the halfway point. There is a small spring 0.5 miles north of the summit.
