day hike: pioneer peak loop

This 7 mile event to Pioneer Peak above Brighton celebrates Utah's pioneer heritage. Our itinerary is to scamper up the traditional route to Catherine Pass and thence up-over Sunset Peak and around to Pioneer Peak. From Pioneer we'll drop down toward Snake Creek Pass, and complete a loop back to Brighton. This event features about 2,500 feet of elevation gain, and provides wonderful vistas of the Brighton bowl, Heber Valley, Timpanogos, and many other Wasatch summits. Everyone should bring a lunch for a summit rendezvous, along with their 10E's; anyone preferring a shorter out-and-back trek can turn around at Catherine Pass. Meet Elliott (801) 969-2846 in the Big Cottonwood Canyon Park & Ride at 8:00am to carpool/caravan.
