Eight TrailBlazers headed to Northwest Arkansas to hike Twin Mountains Trail on a cold, frosty morning.

The Twin Mountains are located about 18 miles west of Fayetteville and Springdale.  We chose to go to Springdale and head west on Hwy 412. From there it was about 3 miles to the trailhead.  However, we drove past the parking lot and wound up having to turn around and backtrack.  We headed through the woods to the first peak and spent some time viewing the surrounding countryside. From there we hiked a couple of miles to the second peak which offered a more panoramic view.  We found a great spot on the side of the mountain to have lunch before hiking back to the cars. On the return trip, we headed south on a very good forest service road and took Hwy 16 back to I-49.

Deborah took a fall and injured her wrist. She thought it was just a sprain, but has learned she has two broken bones.  We wish her a speedy recovery.
