A leisurely hike, paid off with a picturesque meadow and a compelling cabin highlight Trail #233, a side-journey found not far after leaving the Little North Fork of the Clearwater River trail.
Twin Creek Trail #233 is one of two ways to reach the Twin Creek Cabin, the further option being an ATV trail to the north that comes in at about three miles.
The hiking trail that heads north toward Spokane Meadows begins just half a mile from the Trail #50 trailhead, and travels to the Twin Creek Cabin in less than a mile.
The grade of trail #233 is moderate and can be easily used by both hikers and those who would prefer to bicycle to the cabin.
Twin Creek Cabin contains three beds, a wood stove, loft, table and prop-open windows to let in sunlight. Outside the structure sits a fire pit, which sits directly adjacent to the end of Twin Creek OHV trail #277.
Spokane Meadows is medium-sized for a mountain meadow, Twin Creek running through it north to south. Twin Creek dumps into the North Fork of the Clearwater River a half a mile from Spokane Meadows.
As of mid-June, the North Fork was running strong and still several feet above summer levels.
