We started at the Silver Lake area in Brighton Ski Resort, Continued to Twin Lakes Pass, Climbed to the sub peak overlooking Wolverine Cirque, then summited Mount Wolverine. From there we continued east over Mount Tuscarora, down to Catherine's Pass, Past Lake Catherine, Lake Martha, and Lake Mary, and back down to the Brighton Parking area. This is probably one of the most scenic hikes in the Wasatch.
I'm not sure, but I think it took us about 5 hours total.
