Loved this hike! The trail is so well groomed and well marked. I definitely would take the extra time to go up the ridge and look down into the Canyons ski resort and park city!! IT'S SPECTACULAR!

Loved it!! Hydrate or you'll be cursing at yourself the entire way up. Especially if you hike up late August around 2pm in 90 degree weather. Pace yourself up, it's a bit harder than it looks. The burst of energy you get once you finish and take a break will make you want to jog the entire way down, just be careful with plethora of rocks you can slip on. Don't forget to stay a while at the top.... You'll deserve it!! Enjoy :)

My small dog had a hard time on this trail, because it's pretty steep and there are quite a few big rocks to climb over. We had a good time though and making it to the top was an incredible view at sunset! Only downfall is that it was extremely crowded.

This is a great walk to take with your dog(s) it's off leash for most of it, and there is a great swim area for them at the end, and a waterhole along the way as well. We always have a good time. It's just very dusty!

I was able to make it from the parking lot to the lake in about 15-20 minutes. The loose rock wasn't as troublesome as I imagined. I came across moose, a dozen or so deer, and tons of critters. The lake is a beautiful spot to photograph he sunset or sunrise.

Was a beautiful hike. Leaves were just starting to change. Don't be fooled though this is up hill the entire way about a 3000' incline but way worth it. The trail on the way up has some amazing scenery

Great scenery - the pup loved that there was water following a good amount of the trail. We took Little Water trail up to the Great Western Trail, which met up with Old Red Pine Rd Trail. Made it a loop and just took ORPRT back down. Little Water Trail is much shadier and I would call it the scenic route up to Wasatch Crest Trail. Fall colors are just developing now. Beautiful

One of my favorite trails close to SLC.

hiking

The best time to go is around 9 am. It's nice and cool and it's not crowded. The trail was clean and it was beautiful. You do have to climb up some rock at the very end to see it well. But the trail to get up there is really easy. Your feet will most likely get wet so expect that.

on Brighton Lakes Trail

Lovely hike. Started at the base next to the chairlift. Initially was concerned we would would be surrounded by lifts, but quickly ascended to some lightly forested areas. Lakes were pretty, although low this time of year (August).

We took the spur up to Sunset Peak which was a good workout, but doable. It was strenuous at points! Spectacular view from the top.

From there you can come down and complete the loop or make it an out and back if fatigued.

A fun and relatively easy hike with a beautiful view awaiting all hikers at the end. Can easily be done there and back in only a couple hours, with the option of continuing further past Desolation hike and into Mt. Olympus hike (they are connected) if hikers so choose. Beautiful scenic hike the entire way.

A solid, short workout with a nice view of the valley while catching your breath sitting on the rocks. Would recommend for those who want a view of city but don't want a very long hike.
