Beautiful views!

It's a short hike but you can definitely feel it - especially with the high elevation. However, it is definitely worth it! Make sure you go on a clear sunny day for the best views... read more

It's a short hike but you can definitely feel it - especially with the high elevation. However, it is definitely worth it! Make sure you go on a clear sunny day for the best views of the city! Also, it will be pretty muddy in the colder months with snow and rain.

Loved this hike for a day you are trying to see some things in the city and some outdoors things. This is only 1/2 mile long but it is a strenous hike for sure and so make sure you are in shape. The view from above of the entire Salt Lake City is gorgeous. There is also a Mormon monument... More

Great views of the city and surrounding areas. A good climb and steep at the end. The haze the day we went prevented us from seeing into the distance. I don't know if this is unusual or not.

I'm surprised this isn't rated more highly- the park provides easy access to a high overlook of Salt Lake City and is a great place to watch the sunrise and sunset.

From this site, you get about a 300 degree view of the city, of the Great Salt Lake, the airport, and the mountains. PERFECT for sunset/sunrise, or anytime! For this view, you don't even have to hike to the top. A 3 minute walk will get you amazing views!

Great little spot for an overview of SLC. I visited Ensign on my last night in SLC to watch the Sunset. There is a short trail that leads to wonderful views. There is a longer, much steeper trail which leads to 360 views of SLC and the Great Salt Lake. Wear appropriate shoes as the trails are rocky.

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
