Fantastic trail and incredible views. I tried to summit Mt Wolverine from Brighton about two months ago, but decided to quit when I didn’t have the right footwear. I came back and had another go at it from the Alta side; which is a little easier because the shorter trail. Lots of mud and a little snow; but it is early October. Be warned: the trail gets hard to follow towards the end of summiting, and it becomes a little more of a climb than a hike at times. However; the views are really worth it.

nice peak. not too difficult but definitely harder than it's neighbor sunset peak. beautiful views of little and big cottonwood canyons. views of lots of lakes below you.

Awesome trail! As of July 2, 2017, we could drive up the dirt road to the parking lot. There is no parking at the trailhead (about .2 miles away).
After climbing the ridge, the trail opens into a beautiful alpine meadow, and then climbs again to the saddle overlooking Lake Catherine. Up to this point, I would call the trail easy to moderate. From there, the trail is much more difficult. It is both difficult to follow and quite scrambly.
To get to the summit from the saddle, just follow the crest of the ridge up to the first summit, then across the saddle to Mt. Wolverine.
One comment on the "loop": The southern side of the loop, the one to the right as you begin, is marked with a No Trespassing sign partway up the hill. Where it joins the northern side of the loop, there is a sign saying please don't use this trail. Next time, I will just use the left, northern side of the loop, and call it an out-and-back.
