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.

A relatively short hike, although steep at parts. The view from the top is wonderful. We had a wonderful 90 minutes as a family and would recommend it to anybody. If you're from sea level like us, I recommend taking your time.

The view is worth the time to hike up the hill. Not a long distance, but a good vertical incline. Make sure it is a clear day outside to get the value as you can see for miles.

A great hike not requiring hiking boots. Trail is well marked off. Incredible views of SLC and Salt Lake. Worth the time and effort. Sunset is a must!

No hiking boots needed and accessible for little children. Great view of the city where founders planned it all out.

The park is very nice - you get to see salt lake city and the views are amazing. The hike to the top isn't too bad, maybe took us a total of 45 minutes to get to the top and back to the bottom.

Make sure you have some water with you. Even though this hike is short, it's got a few steeper, more challenging parts. Still I would rate it an easy-medium hike. It does not have paved path, so strollers would not be an option. We hiked it around sunset and it was amazing to be able to see so much of... More

The hike is fairly steep and can be pretty exhausting if you're lugging any gear, but the view is amazing. Saw a fantastic sunset over the salt lake and captured some amazing night photos of the city. Some people might get bored quickly, but we stayed and took photos and timelapse for over 2 hours. A nice detour out of... More
