Quite the View

Also known as "the view", Ensign Peak has a fairly easy hike up to a spectacular view of Salt Lake City. If you get the chance go at night, the city lights are gorgeous!

Surprisingly we found the entrance to the park. From there climbing was a beuatiful trip. We enjoyed the view of town. airport and lake.

This is a short hike. Very nice view. It was a bit steep. But nothing we couldn't handle. Parking was good. In a Residential area

For the traveler not familiar with the history of Salt Lake City, this is a must stop! The hike is short, though the trail can have some gravel on it. Be careful with very young children or the elderly/not so mobile. We hike with a family group to the marker at the top. Fun, and just the right adventure level... More

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.
