Trip Report: Brighton Ridge Hike

Brighton Ridge Hike

HIKE 09/09/2023 MOD

The skies didn't look favorable when we gathered at the park and ride and piled into vehicles. But my opinion is that it's better to hike in the rain than to sit at home only to find out it never rained. So we stuck to the plan and drove to Brighton. Our hike on the Clayton Peak trail took us to the summits of Clayton and Preston peaks. On the way down we looped around Dog Lake and explored a mysterious treehouse and abandoned mine. Our decision to disregard the weather forecast paid off and we enjoyed a mostly pleasant day.
