Description

Run this peak for a stunning view of the Brighton Lakes Trail and Big Cottonwood Canyon!

This peak is rather accessible with a mostly mellow climb past beautiful alpine lakes for most of the run. Though accessible from the Alta side too, you'll miss out on passing by the Brighton Lakes.

Half-Day Run: About 3 miles. Simply hike to Catherine's Pass then take the ridge trail up to the peak.
