Even in a few inches of snow this is an easy hike. Park in the church carpark (I felt bad about taking a space on a sunday but there were plenty free) and head up. Do be sure to check visibility, as I couldn't see much of what is probably a really nice view on a clear day. Make sure... More

Shortish, steep hike with no shade. Not a very pretty hike, but the views from the top can't be beat. The trail itself is barren, dry, hot and scragly. But you get the reward at the top with a view that goes on forever in each direction. And the history is important. This is where Brigham Young went a day... More

Great hike with amassing views! We hiked in a beautiful sunny morning. Trail is snow covered so make sure to have good footwear to go both up and also get back down. This is definitely worth the effort to get to the summit.

Amazing views of the city from the top. Bit of a climb to the top if you are a little infirm or elderly!!

Really easy and fast hike. Easy to take restless kids up and let them run off. There are great views of the Salt Lake Valley.

This is a hike that is about a mile to the top and back, it can get a little steep at times but it's not too bad. It is definitely a little bit more difficult right after a snow storm has dumped over a foot of snow on it and you are not used to walking in snow. I ended... More

Its located on top of the hill. Its good place to do exercise in the afternoon , climbing those hills. Its good for the entire Salt Lake City view in night time when the lights one by one switch on. Its a romantic place with couples to watch the sun goes down. One of my favorite hills. Must do if... 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.
