Probably the best place to get a great view of the city, especially downtown. The hike was very steep and kindy rocky. I'm borderline anemic and used to humid southern air, so I had to stop several times on the way up to catch my breath. But once at the top, the views are really great and worth it!

FYI parking is basically residential street parking, so be mindful of that. No bathrooms onsite.

If you love a view without the fuss of a big hike, don’t miss this one. Not sure why Ensign Peak doesn’t appear right at the top of every “things to do in Salt Lake City” list. For those who don’t mind a tiny bit of exercise, it’s close in and easy to scale (although not accessible unfortunately). The entrance is on a suburban street in a residential neighborhood; there doesn’t seem to be a dedicated parking lot. You just walk up a sloped path for 15 minutes. Your reward is a spectacular, almost 360-degree view of the city. When we went up, it was very warm and sunny, but the steady breeze at the top quickly cooled us down from the minor exertion.

The hike was about 1 mile each way and the views from the top was great. Parking is on the street in a residential neighborhood. Worth checking out.

This was a nice short hike with a great view at the end. The trail itself is quite steep and well-worn. The drive to the park/trailhead was almost as enjoyable as the hike itself.

We didn't realize that there are different entrances and that one is for a shorter hike and another is for a longer hike. We ended up doing the longer hike. The hike was great but the real payoff was the view at the top so I don't know that we gained anything by doing the longer one (other than getting more exercise!).

Not for the faint of heart. This isn’t a tourist path. This is a hike on dirt and rocks. That being said it’s not long and it’s not that difficult. The view is outstanding and worth some time to do.

We happened to be in the area on Pioneer Day and were happy this hike was in the plans. The park is small but a great place to check out! Teaching some history/stories of the original pioneers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Those pioneers were the 1st settlers of Salt Lake City and established what this large city has now turned into.

The hike is short and simple offering a great view of the entire area of the Salt Lake Valley as well as the Great Salt Lake, the Wasatch Range, and other scenic sites. One of the best short hikes in the area for a simple trip and great views.

If you live in the area or will be visiting, it's a definite place to stop by and see. Fun for families, couples, or individuals.

Do not take children, elderly and physically weak. The climb is a good exercise. Drive takes you through the capitol and through neighborhoods. Park along the street and start climbing. No trees. No shade.
Take water. Two bottles per head if you go in evening. Four of you do at noon at 100F.

Great views from the top.
Good cardio. Take good shoes. Wear easy fitting clothes. Come home, shower sleep.
