The trail leaves the road a few hundred feet above the trail-head. It follows the east side of Silver Fork Canyon. At a trail junction just before the trail rejoins the road take the left fork. This trail climbs up but also heads back down the canyon for a few hundred feet before turning east and climbing up Honeycomb Canyon. The trail ends at the top of a pass at the top of the Summit Ski Lift

This was a good work out, I logged over 200 floors! Only saw 3 other people and didn't run into any snow, just milk thistle weeds at the very top. I didn't know where the trail head parking lot was so we parked in Solitudes first parking lot on the west side. We followed the road under the Eagle Express lift, around some cabins and then located the trail head. The rest of the trail is pretty obvious, one fork in the road where we stayed to the left. Hiking poles came in handy on some of the steep rockier parts. Lots of wildflowers in the middle of July.

We really enjoyed this hike. Despite Big Cottonwood canyon being overrun on a Sunday, we were the only two people on this trail. It's a steep climb and there is still a lot of snow on the last mile. We had micro spikes which worked great on the steeper sections. The views from the saddle next to the Honey Comb Skis are incredible. Later in the year this would also make a great loop hike by continuing to Lake Mary and then descending into Brighton.
I highly recommend this the, esp on weekends.

Really nice hike. Plenty of trees and very quiet. Didn't see anyone until coming down and that was pretty late in the morning (10-11am). I would recommend at least not stopping at where the trail tells you to and getting up near the ski lift. We started climbing the cliffs themselves but didn't feel too confident in the lines we investigated, mixed with the exposure. Just be aware to actually summit the cliffs will likely require a class 3/4 scramble.

A wonderful hike. We followed the trail up to both mines and then took the ridge line up to Solitude boundary line on top of the Honeycomb Cliffs. It was a good scramble to the top from there. The views are amazing; you can see down both canyons and across at all the other awesome peaks.

This is quite a nice hike that we had to ourselves today. It starts out in Silver Fork Canyon then heads up Honeycomb Canyon. The trail is very good and easy to follow all the way to the summit where you can see the Some of the Solitude and Brighton Ski areas
