Ascent Trip Report

I drove up the Great Alpine Highway to a saddle with a sign for the Twins. The trail starts on a gravel road. The was no clear indication where to leave the road to head up to the Twins. I headed down too far on the road and had to turn back to a saddle to begin the ascent up. I found a faint trail but in places I was not sure if it was a trail or due to runoff. There on top I headed over the smaller mound to the higher mound with a marker on top. I returned the same way.
