Directions to trailhead: In winter 2011-2012, take Route 3 south past Twin Mountain (from Route 302), then take a left into the Beaver Brook WMNF fee parking area, just before the five corners, spotting a car here. Then, go north on Route 3 to Twin Mountain, taking a right onto Little River Road. As of winter 2011-2012, the end of the road had room for limited parking (no parking signs removed - 7 Dwarfs Motel offers alternative fee parking in winter), and the snowmobile bridge across the Little River had been rebuilt and reopened. After crossing this bridge, take an immediate sharp left turn onto a skier path, which then leads to Haystack Road, near the North Twin Trail trailhead.
