Via Big Cottonwood Canyon Road (7000 South Wasatch Blvd) to Brighton. From the Brighton area parking lot, look for the cedar chip road that goes behind Molly Green's Restaurant and the Majestic Lift. The Trailhead is located behind the Mt. Majestic Lodge on the left side of the road. Activities

Absolutely beautiful trail. Wildflowers everywhere. Wouldn't classify this trail as easy, more moderate, but very doable. Lots of sun exposure which makes it feel hotter but still nice out. Saw 3 moose out today, 2 bulls and 1 female. Lake Mary is the prettiest of the 3 but the views from the end are awesome!

Really beautiful hike. It was steep up to Lake Mary. After that it wasn't bad to Lake Catherine. Went to Dog Lake on the way down. Saw a big bull moose. Lots of wildflowers.

Got there and went right up to sunset peak... I'm not the best hiker and it was doable with little breaks along the way!

The wild flowers were beautiful. We finished by 11, before it got too hot. However, we started out freezing cold, so I'd bring a light jacket. The mosquitoes were pretty intense when near any of the three lakes, but not too bothersome if we kept moving.
