There is a nice park at the bottom of the trail that has some placards and information on pioneers. Then if you take a mild hike (can be strenuous for old or out of shape but still doable if you take your time) the views are a great reward though. You can see all of salt lake valley over into...

I have made this trip each time with small children and pregnant, and I am not a super fit person. It is steep but you can go at your own pace. My kids have done this at 2-3 years old and they haven't wanted help until just before the summit. It is a 30 minute trek to the top and... More

Very short hike (1/2 mile to the top), close to downtown SLC (2 miles from Temple Square). Wonderful views of the city, Great Salt Lake, and Wasatch Mountains looming in the distance. Not the most pretty hiking trail. It's fully exposed with virtually no shade or tree coverage. The peak alone isn't a noteworthy endeavor, but it's fantastic to watch... More

This is a short hike. It is steep in places, but you will not be disappointed with the view at the top. Great view of the Capitol, valley, and airport. Be sure and take a camera!

Short but steep in parts - take water if you go in summer, but nice views of Salt Lake City from the top. Fun for kids, and they like it because it doesn't take too long. Its popular, so you're likely to see a lot of people depending on the time of year and weather. We've done this several times.

Also known as "the view", Ensign Peak has a fairly easy hike up to a spectacular view of Salt Lake City. If you get the chance go at night, the city lights are gorgeous!
