Brighton Lakes Tour Professional Review and Guide
"The Brighton Lakes Trail passes three lakes: Lakes Mary, Martha, and Catherine. Before you come to the first lake, there is also a spur to Dog Lake, which sits only 500 feet off the main trail. Known for its lush summer wildflowers, this area is the home of the Wasatch Wild Flower Festival, and during late July and early August wildflowers typically line the path. This is a popular, family-friendly hike, and you will find people of all ages making the trek to these scenic alpine lakes. This hike often makes the list of Most Family Friendly Hikes near Salt Lake City."
--Lori J. Lee, Best Hikes Near Salt Lake City (Falcon Guides).
Very good trail with beautiful lakes - especially Mary - and scenic overlooks. Starts with a climb through the ski area, but it's all down hill coming back! Note:: Find the trail head by going just to the right of the main ski lodge, up the gravel path by the large ski area map. The trailhead is marked just after you cross the ski service road at an opening between two large logs.
