The DEC has closed the Western approach to Twin, due to safety concerns. The East approach remains open.

DEC Press Release

So a Devil's Path traverse is off the table until the situation is resolved.

Short version of the events so far:

  • The DEC recently installed metal rungs in a particularly steep section of the trail. This caused a great deal of discussion. :rolleyes:
  • An unknown individual removed/vandalized 2 of the rungs.
  • DEC closed the trail.
The trail has been re-routed and re-opened, sans metal rungs...

The link above has more details, as does the 3500 club facebook page.
