Twisted Pines is primary used as the downhill portion of a larger Cave Lake loop, however some users will use it as an out-and-back. It is fast and flowy, but watch for sudden corners. Toward the top there are a couple technical sections, but overall this is a smooth ride. Be prepared for excellent views along the way.

Excellent conditions right now. Awesome downhill. Did the aforementioned loop with cave lake overlook and high roller. Stoke levels were high.

You could ride up this trail as an 8 mile out and back, but there is way more fun to be had with less climbing going up the Cave Lake Overlook...

 I rode this the opposite direction and had a ton of fun. I'm not sure a green rating is entirely accurate. Anything with this amount of climbing should be a blue. Great views and a great trail. I didnt see one person!
