No hiking boots needed and accessible for little children. Great view of the city where founders planned it all out.

The park is very nice - you get to see salt lake city and the views are amazing. The hike to the top isn't too bad, maybe took us a total of 45 minutes to get to the top and back to the bottom.

Make sure you have some water with you. Even though this hike is short, it's got a few steeper, more challenging parts. Still I would rate it an easy-medium hike. It does not have paved path, so strollers would not be an option. We hiked it around sunset and it was amazing to be able to see so much of... More

The hike is fairly steep and can be pretty exhausting if you're lugging any gear, but the view is amazing. Saw a fantastic sunset over the salt lake and captured some amazing night photos of the city. Some people might get bored quickly, but we stayed and took photos and timelapse for over 2 hours. A nice detour out of... More

This is a short hike but it is relatively steep. The view at the top is spectacular. Bring water. I wouldn't do it on a hot summer day.

We didn't know what to expect when we chose this 'attraction' before leaving SLC. It is a nice short hike with a moderate elevation gain. Just keep saying to yourself, "the view is worth the hike" and your will be fine. I would suggest cooler temperatures would help. I would recommend this to most healthy people, but be prepared to...

If you want a tough hike, feel free to go up the front path, but being this isn't the real path...follow the signs. I hiked with my wife and two kids up the front seeing others do the same. Very tough with kids, but the easy real path wraps around back. Great hike and incredible view. Never been so high.

For the view of Salt Lake City that inspired Brigham Young to lay out the city that now exists, you may wish to hike up to Ensign Peak. Just a few days after arriving in the Salt Lake Valley, Brigham Young and a few other men rode horses up to what was later named "Ensign Peak." There they planted a... More

This is a great quick and steep hike to get the blood pumping. Always love this one come spring time to get my cardio back up and ready for the summer!

Love this little hike. It's so short that any little hiker can do it. Then you are rewarded with an amazing view once reaching the top of the hill. Great history to go along with this site too.
