hike - brighton/clayton peak

The hike starts on the Brighton Lakes trail, then goes on the trail to Snake Creek Pass. From Snake Creek Pass, we travel a short distance on a service road , then take the moderately steep, but defined route to the summit. The trail traverses below some beautiful forested slopes. Usually at Snake Creek pass around Independence Day, there is a "garden" of flowers that features wavy paintbrush. Great views of the Wasatch range. The round trip distance is 5-6 miles with a 1900 foot elevation gain. Lets meet at 8:00 am at the 6200 South park and ride and plan for a 8:15 am departure.
