We're planning to hike to Lake Mary above Brighton on Saturday, August 20, 2016.
Let's meet at the McDonald's parking lot area on 700 E and 200 S at 10 am. We will also stop at the Big Cottonwood Canyon parking lot at 10:30 to carpool.
This should be an easy, cool hike. We can get to Lakes Martha and Catherine on mostly flat trails from Lake Mary if people would like a longer hike.
Don't forget sunglasses, hat or sunscreen and water!
I'm looking forward to it.
Thursday evening, July 21st, intermediate hike at Alta Basin. So, here is the scoop. We will meet in the parking lot at the mouth of Little Cottonwood Canyon at 6 PM. Then drive up to Albion Basin main parking lot. We will take the Upper Albion Meadows trail up to Alf's, then decide if we want to go towards Catherine's pass or Cecret Lake. . This just depends on who shows up and your energy level. Plan to bring dinner/snacks, water and a flashlight--just in case. The wildflowers are spectacular right now. So, take only pictures and leave the flowers.
Join LHC for a last hike of the season up a scenic, steep and south-facing drainage in the Storm Mountain area. Mule Hollow rises about 1500 feet in 1.5 miles to a mine dump with views of the rugged Storm Mtn./Twin Peaks area. The trail is steep and poorly-defined in a few places, but- your hiking skills should be well-practiced by this late in the season!
Meet at 10:00 at the Big Cottonwood park & ride lot. We will carpool to the trailhead a short distance above the Storm Mountain picnic area, just past the new bridge. Allow four hours minimum for the hike.
