Hiked up Beartrap Fork which was steeper than I thought it would be. Visited Desolation Lake and then bagged Silver Peak before descending.
Scrambled up here on the way to Desolation. Nice to leave the heavy mountain bike traffic on the trail to hike on the ridge between Silver and Desolation. Love the views toward the Brighton area from here.
From Willow Heights on snowshoes.
Nice little hill, easy access from GWT
Gorgeous snowshoe hike with a friend day after President's Day - seems relatively low avalanche danger in most of this canyon. Saw 1 snowboarder and no other people the entire afternoon. Was such a pristine feeling canyon it's a bummer that when you hit the ridge that the ski resort ruins that feeling. :(
Hiked this one on our way from Scott Hill to Murdock Peak with Michael &Tim Eschenberg.
Brighton Ridge Run
Very nice winter tour, went up twice and found excellent powder the second trip down.
Two feet of powder in April, great tree runs off the southwest ridge!!!
Approached from Willow Heights trailhead. Overnighted above willow lake. Hiked ridgeline to top. Wonderful wildflowers the whole way. Trailless. Why is it necessary to have three geological survey markers on this summit?
Part of my early morning ridge run.
Climbed with the WMC as part of a BCC super loop.
first time at top in winter (though a very warm spring-like day). Snowshoed up from Willow TH to saddle separating Beartrap from Willow (9600') then NE to peak.
Biked up Mill D and climbed Desolation, Silver, and Little Water.
8/19/16 - Biked up Mill D and hiked Deso/Silver Peaks.
Just last Saturday the last time. I usually traverse over this point going back and forth along the PC Ridgeline on ski tours.
Climbed up Scott Hill from the Guardsman Pass road. spent a night on top of Scott with perfect weather. Then hiked down the ridge, checking out the views from 10009, Silver, and Desolation Peaks. Then hiked down the Desolation Lake Trail back to where my truck was waiting.
A buddy and I biked the crest trail & I scampered up this during a rest break. Great day!
After work hike of Desolation Peak and Silver Benchmark from Beartrap. RT time of about 2 hours.
Nice Fall hike, did with Desolation Peak
Quick peak going up Beartrap after the first snowfall of the year. http://www.willhiteweb.com/big_cottonwood_canyon/silver_benchmark/desolation_peak_404.htm
