Very late reply, but I know you've spent your time around Twin Sisters: have you had any experience with the side trails leading off Twin Sisters, south of the vista? I noticed at least one that appeared to descend to the west, but there may have been more. They were both blazed and had cairns, but aren't on this map.
I've hiked the yellow trail south of the vista/meadows to the STS. It was a very nice trail, beautiful forests. In my experience the best route down from the vista is off trail, go to the north boundary of the meadows, and descend the ridge to the west. It is a beautiful open ridge with many views looking down into the canyon of the Hammersley. At the bottom, cross the creek and pick up the STS.

Haha yeah, I pumped you for info on that ridge walk descent over on adkforum. When you say the yellow trail south, I'm assuming you mean the side trail, not the Twin Sisters Trail itself. There's still so much new (to me) trail there to check out.. hopefully this January.
