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.

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!
