This hike is a loop that I found on the map.  If you are looking at the 2013-2015 version of Green Trails 303S, then you can see it on side B starting at Deep Creek in quadrant Nn-4.

We will be following the Twin Sisters Trail Southwest to th PCT, which we will follow South to the Cowlitz Trail where we will go North over Tumac Mountain, turn right and head through Blankenship Meadows and hen North along Indian Creek Trail.  It should be beautiful! 

The distance (according to the map) comes out at just over 14 miles with about 3,200 feet of gain.
