The Brighton Lakes Trail is a connecting trail between Twin Lakes Reservoir and the Lake Mary Trail. The trail offers a panoramic view of the peaks that surround the Brighton Bowl.
The Brighton Lakes Trail is a great hike for the views, the lakes, the landscape and the wildflowers. The trail up to Lake Mary is steep, but short and comes to the lake pretty quickly. Lake Mary is the largest of the lakes on this trail and the views are spectacular.
During winter, the Brighton Lakes Trail becomes the domain of snowshoers.
