Twin Falls is a spectacular cascade falling 287 ft. down from Lake Mamie, and is best seen in the spring when the snow is melting. It is quite impressive. The name of the waterfall is not really much of a mystery. It is not because there are 2 waterfalls. It is named after the lakes that it drops into: Twin Lakes. But the name of the lakes is quite a mystery, and quite silly. There are not 2 "twin" lakes. There are actually 3 lakes. Why they called them Twin Lakes is completely beyond me. I vote to change the names to Triplet Lakes, and Triplet Falls. Yeah, that sounds better.
