Must see!

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.

We had the chance to drive up to Ensign Peak above the State Capitol in Salt Lake City. It is close to town and easy to get to and walk up to the vista point (a little more steep up to the peak). A great view of the city, the valley, and the Wasatch. I would like to try this... More

Medium difficulty hike of about a mile each way, but worth it for the views up top. Take comfortable shoes and water.

There is a nice park at the bottom of the trail that has some placards and information on pioneers. Then if you take a mild hike (can be strenuous for old or out of shape but still doable if you take your time) the views are a great reward though. You can see all of salt lake valley over into...

I have made this trip each time with small children and pregnant, and I am not a super fit person. It is steep but you can go at your own pace. My kids have done this at 2-3 years old and they haven't wanted help until just before the summit. It is a 30 minute trek to the top and... More

It's just a little climb to the top of the hill, but the view is great and it introduces you to the beauty of City Creek Canyon adjacent.
