Really nice hike, while it is uphill most of the way it isn't difficult. Fantastic view of the city and the Great Salt Lake. Interesting history of the peak with a monument on top.

Easy to find the trailhead on GPS, short and sweet hike, great panoramic views of the Valley. Great at sunset as well.

I had never heard of Ensign Peak but saw it from a distance one day so I hiked it....in a dress....with a 2 year old.....in February. At the top I sang "High on a Mountain Top" out loud because I felt like it. ;-) Good thing there was no one else up there.

Although the trail is all up hill, it's short and easy to hike for any age. The view from the top is amazing!

This is a great short hike you can do with your kids. The view is breath taking. A fun hike to take visitors to. The trail is easily marked. Bring a flashlight if going in the afternoon or evening.

A relatively short hike, although steep at parts. The view from the top is wonderful. We had a wonderful 90 minutes as a family and would recommend it to anybody. If you're from sea level like us, I recommend taking your time.

The view is worth the time to hike up the hill. Not a long distance, but a good vertical incline. Make sure it is a clear day outside to get the value as you can see for miles.

A great hike not requiring hiking boots. Trail is well marked off. Incredible views of SLC and Salt Lake. Worth the time and effort. Sunset is a must!
