Love hiking and wandering around the trails at Brighton. Right now be prepared for snow, ice and mud! Gorgeous up at the Lake. Lots of Ice still floating around-and with all the snow- hardly any traffic!

Very nice and easy hike! The trail is in great condition and the lake is absolutely beautiful.

6.3 I always forget how beautiful the Pipeline Trail off of Rattlesnake Gulch is! It's gorgeous right now, with lots of wildflowers, greenery, and views of the other side of Millcreek, Mount Olympus, and the Valley. There weren't too many people along the trail mid-morning, and no snake sightings. First portion of the trail is steep enough to get your heartrate up, but evens out to a pleasant stroll as you turn onto the Pipeline Trail to the Overlook. Found lots of cigarette butts at the Overlook - please remember to practice Leave No Trace principles and to pack out what you pack in. Thanks! :)

Quite the steep hike. Didn’t love this one. The whole way was a decent incline with lots of rocks to start. 40% of it was shaded but lots of water for pups. The last bit before the meadow was overgrown. No snakes! Pretty valley view behind you close to the top! If you’re up for a challenge and have done Olympus I’d say go for it, but for a hike with views I’d choose something different or maybe aim for thaynes!

Super fun weekday hike to escape from the heat of the city. Muddy and slushy most of the way even in early June but the lake looks really pretty. It is one of the easiest alpine lakes with amazing views to reach.

Wow! This is a gem of a hike that I had never done before. It has it all! Most notably, it culminates with one of the best views in the Wasatch.

6.2 Beautiful day on the trail! Fairly steep grade all the way up with just a few flat areas. The creek is running pretty high right now, with 3 river crossings - your shoes will definitely get wet but it's great to cool down along the trail! There is an incredible view of the Valley near the the top of the trail so be sure to look back and admire (and take a breather, as this section of trail is quite steep). Near the top, there is also quite a bit of overgrowth, so wearing long pants is helpful! Lots of bugs out and about today, but didn't see any snakes. Picked up a bit of trash on the way down - please be mindful of your surroundings, and always pack out what you pack in (including dog poo bags, orange peels, etc)! :)

Great hike, plenty of challenges along the way, the fourth mile was super steep, rocky at the top, did not complete the scramble, beautiful views of the Great Salt Lake and antelope island.

Pretty and simple trail. Took one hour to hike 2.2 miles. Nice little pond and small lake. Steeper in beginning and flattens out. The Trail is marked with two green poles on north side of the road. Has no snow but is Muddy still in some spots and you have to cross the stream in a couple of areas.

Really boring hike nothing at the end, some nice views of the valley though.

Good workout! Great views at the top! Tuesday afternoon, only one at the top; so peaceful. Easy to get off trail, I was glad I had the map on!

Is there someone in your life you don’t like...than to recommend this trail to them. I read the previous reviews about it being hard and I thought I was up for the challenge.... no, this is not a challenge it’s torture. It never levels out, you go straight up the mtn til you hit the peak, than basically are forced to run down just pounding your knees into the ground. I’m a very active person, I work out 6 days a week and hard too, but this hike was just not enjoyable. I’m still giving it 4 stars bc the wild flowers were gorgeous and the views at the top do make it worth it. You also get the perfect view of the sunset as well. For the other reviewers who say this is moderately hard I give you much respect. Summit’d in 96 minutes and came down in 58 mins

My favorite way to experience this trail is to start at church fork on the pipeline and run to elbow fork. Cross the road and follow the terraces trail to the terraces picnic area. Down the road to the pipeline entrance again and back to church fork. The best part is the 1-1.5 miles center section in the Mount Olympus Wilderness Area. I ran this route yesterday evening (7-8 mile loop) and only saw 3 people and 2 snakes (a medium bull snake and a smallish rubber boa). The rubber boa looked like a stick on the trail so keep and eye out not to step on them. This time of year it is nice and green and cool in the shade.
