Beautiful mountain woodlands, breathtaking panoramic views This hike begins at the Brighton Ski Resort in Big Cottonwood Canyon. The trail has been recently re-routed, so make sure to take note of the signs marking the new trail. This trail winds through some beautiful woodland areas with an occasional view of the surrounding canyon. The trail climbs out of the woodland onto a ridge overlooking Snake Creek Pass. From here, the beautiful Heber Valley can be seen to the east, Mt. Timpanogos to the southwest, and Big Cottonwood Canyon behind to the northeast. From here, hikers can return to the trailhead or continue on the service road to the left to tackle Clayton Peak and enjoy its spectacular view. About 1/4 mile up the service road, the trail will pick up at the base of Clayton Peak. For the next 1/4 mile, the hike is fairly strenuous. The trail becomes a series of switchbacks that ascend the face of the peak. It's a lot of work, but definitely worth it when you behold the view at 10721 feet.

My GPS clocked this at 6 miles round trip. A very gradual incline until you get to the last 1/8 a mile which takes you up to the peak. This trail is beautiful and is very quiet compared to going to the lakes. You are hiking through Brighton ski resort so there are service roads you cross, but don't let that deter you. It's a great hike.

Brighton was packed with people. So the first little bit did not exactly have a wilderness feel. Once on the trail to Clayton peak though, there was no one. Took an alternate route down by hiking north on the ridge line, then down to a nearby lift (watch the cliff) and down the run to some tire tracks which eventually led to a trail. Made for a nice loop. View from the peak was amazing!

Trail winds through trees and ski runs up to Snake Creek pass then follows a road to the top of a ski lift. The trail continues after you cross under the lift and climbs steeply up to the ridge that you follow up to Clayton Peak. Great 360 degree views.

We hiked from Brighton Resort. There had been a cold snap and there was 1-3" of snow, which made this moderate trail a bit more difficult. The woods are beautiful although the snow made it a little harder to find the trail. We stopped at snake creek pass and had our snacks on some rocks overlooking the best vista. A sign there identified each peak so we knew what web were looking at. We did not continue to Clayton's Peak due to the snow but really enjoyed the hike.

From Brighton it was a 7 mile hike round trip. The views were beautiful and well worth the hike. The trail was easy except for the last .5 miles. The last part is a scramble through rocks to the top.

My favorite hike this year!! But I'm partial to the trails at Brighton. If you ski there this is fun to connect the dots of some favorite runs. You cross under the Crest and Snake Creek lifts and end up on The Western Trail which takes you to Clayton Peak. We did find the unmarked trail but spent a decent amount of time rock scrambling just because it was fun. Had lunch at the summit- beware of the biting flies! Then decided to follow the service road and trails down the Great Western side making a full loop. A nice, moderate hike.

Do this hike!!! I was on the trail with 30 people or more until I broke off at Dog Lake and the I was all alone no other hikers. The view from Snake Creek was amazing and then I got to the top of Clayton Peak and a steep scramble and WOW!!! BEAUTIFUL!

The trail starts at the Brighton Lakes trailhead and junctions at the Dog Lake trail. Look for the sign that says Clayton Peak. You will travel through shaded forest and a couple of meadows. Once you are on the service road near the top, you can either look for the unmarked trail (there's a cairn), or follow the service road all the way up to the ski lift and do some boulder hopping to the peak. The unmarked trail is much easier to follow. Great panoramic views at the top.

The view from the saddle is gorgeous as is the view from the peak itself. It overlooks the Heber Valley on one side and down canyon looking west. This is a rocky peak. We took and ate lunch on top with a group of 5 adults and 7 children. We even carried one in a baby backpack. Instead of making this an out and back we shuttled a car to the top of Guardsman Pass and continued along the ridge line and back to the car. The trail winds through some beautiful trees. The first part of the hike is hot and dusty, but once you hit the cut-off to the peak it is such a beautiful hike.
