The hike up to Ensign peak is a lot of fun, the view over the valley is amazing. Should be an easy hike for most.

What a great view of the city and the lake! Sad to see all the vandalism and graffiti, especially in SLC, but I guess you have to expect that anywhere you go. Definitely worth your time to visit!!

It's a bit of a hike if you decide to tackle it on foot starting at the base, but there is also car access that brings you within feet of the top. The Salt Lake valley spreads out before you far and wide, ringed by mountains on every side. Worth a visit especially during the autumn when the fall leaves... More

This is a very popular trail in SLC due to its historical significance in the settling of Utah by Mormon pioneers. The small park at the base of the trail provides an overview of the history and don't forget to look at the monument at the top (the views are pretty distracting!) It's fun to imagine what the valley looked... More

A short hike brings you to this peak that overlooks the city. Great views of downtown. The view is even prettier as the city lights blink on in the evening.

Walk up to the vista! Then realize you stood where Brigham Young stood to map out where the temple would go.

Great view, short but steep hike to get there. Beautiful view of Salt Lake City. Shorter hike at the same site (mound or something) was nice also. Perfect for our trip because we were just driving through town and didn't have much time. This was a quick way to literally see the whole city :)

We went to Ensign Peak Park on Memorial Day. There were a lot of families there as there is also a memorial area and arboretum. There are stellar views, especially from the peak area. If one wants a work out and stellar views, this is a great park to go to in Salt Lake City. Its a few blocks away... More

The trail is steep and can be done by the non-athletic. The walk is worth the effort as along the trail the views of Salt Lake City are outstanding. At Ensign Peak you'll be amazed at the views.

The great thing about this park is that it's a short drive and hike with great visual rewards. You can park in the small parking lot or alongside the road like we and many others did. The short hike up is rewarded with beautiful views of the city and surrounding area.
