about Lake Mary Trail:
Beginning at the Brighton Lot Trailhead sign (past the Alpine Rose Lodge), the trail crosses under the Majestic Lift and then follows a stream all the way to Lake Mary. From Lake Mary, hikers can continue on to Lake Martha, Lake Catherine, Sunset Peak, and Catherine's Pass. Trail junctions along the hike are with Clayton Peak (difficulty rating: more difficult), Brighton Lakes (difficulty rating: moderate), Dog Lake (difficulty rating: easy), Sunset Peak (difficulty rating: more difficult), and Catherine's Pass (difficulty rating: more difficult).
This particular trail is great for viewing wildlife and wildflowers. Deer and moose sightings are common here. The Salt Lake Ranger District would like to remind the public that although moose can appear calm and tame, they can be extremely dangerous and unpredictable, so please avoid them. Also, please enjoy, but do not pick the wildflowers. Picking them prevents blooming the following year.
When heading into the wilderness, it's always smart to bring a daypack stocked with bug spray, sunscreen, water, tissue, and snacks. It's also fun to bring along a field guide or two and some binoculars so wildlife viewing opportunities aren't missed. The canyons are great places to see birds, moose, butterflies, wildflowers, deer, and much more. Always make sure wildlife viewing is done from a safe distance; use the binoculars to get a closer look.
No bikes, horses, dogs, or motorized vehicle use is allowed on the trail.
