bathroom lighting

I have a set of light switches that keep tripping the breaker...I have all the neutrals together, grounds together and pigtailed, feed wire with one wire daisy chained to all four wire from each light tied into switch.

Did you wire everything ?
Is everything on the same circuit ?
Are they all just reg switches - not 3-ways etc ?
I'd disconnect everything & connect one by one & test to see which trips it

Sounds like you wired it correctly. I would look for something touching something it should not. Does it trip as soon as you turn the breaker on or when you flip one of the switches?
Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.
