Went up Great Western via Layton Ridge Drive. Worked on the spring and it now has 3 outlets. Explored the orange markers on the top ridgeline....went quite a bit of distance to a NO TRESPASSING sign. Saw three mountain goats in the snowy area on the back (Morgan) side. I've never seen mountain goats up there before -- it was a real treat

Started at the Fernwood TH and took the community trail to Layton Peak and then followed the ridge to Thurston. On the way back, took a side trip to the "Layton Nipple".

First time I climbed Layton Peak and I've got to say it was brutal. 60 mile an hour winds on the top. 4 1/2 hours up/3 hours down the Great Western Trail route from Kayscreek. Would say it's a pretty difficult climb except I was passed by JOGGERS going up, going down and along the ridge. Beautiful views! Might have another go once I recover.

Got a late start in an attempt to summit Thurston. By time we made chin scraper we were tired and it was extremely windy and cold. We decided to top out Layton Peak and come back for Thurston later this year. Great way to spend the 4th of July though.

GO UTES!!!

Me and my boy went up Community Trail then down Great Western Trail after visiting Layton Peak. There was a rattle snake hiding really well on the trip, so be careful up there!

Climbed up the Community Trail from the Fernwood trailhead. It's a steep hike, and I was pretty tired by the time we reached the top, but the views into Morgan county were wonderful.

Took the community trail. Couldn't see a thing on top. Cold, cloudy, and windy. I had a blast!

Awesome views of the Ogden Valley to the West and Morgan valley to the East at the summit. Parking right next to trailhead on Fernwood. Very steep climb for most of the way, great for training.

We started from the trailhead near the Castle Home. We actually climbed Layton Peak while trying to traverse over to Thurston Peak. It took longer than expected and we hiked the last couple miles back in the dark.

Downclimbed to the Great Western Trail and headed over to Thurston peak. Thurston is very over-grown and gnarly; I could not find a safe route to the top.
