The Clayton Peak Trail takes off from the Brighton Lakes Trail 1/2 mile from the Brighton Lakes Trailhead. This hiking and backcountry skiing trail enters an area formed from the large glacier that filled the upper part of Big
Cottonwood Canyon to Cardiff Fork several thousand years ago. Clayton Peak (also known as Mount Majestic) offers a panoramic view of the Brighton Lakes area, the Wasatch Mountains, the Uinta Mountains, Heber
Valley, and Mount Timpanogos.

Directions: From Salt Lake City, Take Big Cottonwood Canyon Road (7000 South Wasatch Blvd.) to Brighton. Start from the Lake Mary Trailhead which is located behind the Mt. Majestic Lodge. The Clayton Peak Trail leaves from the Lake Mary Trail about 3/4 mile from the trailhead.
