A hike on the Tahoe Rim Trail from the Ward Creek Blvd. trailhead (Sunnyside, California) to the junction with the Pacific Crest Trail and the southern peak of Twin Peaks. This is a nice moderate hike on a well-maintained trail, except for the boulder scramble up the final 300 ft to the top of the peak.

Twin Peaks is on the Tahoe OGUL peak list.
