Info: Road is Subaruable, but I want to add a warning that you shouldn't take this road if you really care about your car's paintjob, the willows (I think they're willows, some sort of demon bush) are encroaching into the road and there is no way to prevent a bunch of scratching. The road is pretty rocky, and I had to take my time in a few spots, but it was nothing my Forester with good off-road tires couldn't handle. The route up Bushnell and Twin Sisters is as everyone else describes: good road, then very steep ascent, then very steep descent. The descent wasn't as bad as some had made it out to make, but it was very slow going and loose. On a sidenote, why are they called the Twin Sisters? There's nothinig similar about them, not in any way. Not even from the valley do they look like twins. Silly. 
Route: Traverse from Bushnell
Posted On: 2021-06-13, By: mikemalick
Info: Full Summer conditions. No need to touch any snow on the traverse from Bushnell. 3 stream crossings along the trail back to Brook Creek TH are only a few inches deep and there is always something easy enough to walk across on. Pic one is Bushnell Peak summit looking to Twin Sisters. Pic two is the awful descent to make your way back to Brook Creek TH.

Route: Via Bushnell Peak, Southwest Slopes Descent
Posted On: 2019-11-12, By: supranihilest
Info: The traverse from Bushnell Peak was almost entirely dry, and what little snow there was could be avoided. Twin Sisters South blocks the way but is easier than it looks from Bushnell. The real meat of Twin Sisters North is getting off of it. Perhaps the best descent is to go partway back to Bushnell and down, but I went directly down the southwest slopes which are unrelentingly steep and loose. The upper portion to treeline is not fun; be careful not to roll a boulder onto your feet and legs. Once at treeline things become easier and the terrain funnels into one of two small drainage gullies and things then begin to flatten out as the route approaches the road. From that point, assuming the road was used as as the ascent route, just retrace back down the road to where you parked. 
Route: Western Ridge

Info: Ferguson Creek -> Bushnell -> Twin Sisters North -> Ferguson Creek is entirely summer conditions and free of snow. The Ferguson Creek trail has an extremely large blockage about a mile from the trailhead, but the trail does continue on the other side of the massive pile of trees and is worth refinding. I added a picture of the Ferguson Creek trailhead sign, as well as the gap in the fence through which the trail continues just east of the trailhead.
