Although we didn't go all the way to the top (my husband has bad knees), we were able to get a great view from the trail. Shortly after you leave the entrance to the park, as you go up the trail, turn to the left...More

The trail was crouded and hikers were not respectful of others. I was there in the evening so I would suggest trying a morning hike.

The uphill is a little steep, but worth it to see the views. I was an nice little hike for a first time visitor to Salt Lake City. The views were really spectacular. I'm glad I went. Parking is on the street, no parking lot.

It's a little steep going but the view at the top is very pretty. It's amazing how much the noise travels too when you're that high up. Worth a stop if you're in the area.

This is a must see attraction while visiting Salt Lake City. It's not a difficult hike, in fact I hesitate to call it a hike because it is not rigorous. It's more of an incline, but it's very brief and does not take long to...More

Perfect place to go for a hike after a long day ....plenty of trails and beautiful views. A favourite with the locals so it gets crowded. BTW you can pick up the Bonneville shoreline trail from here.

Walked up on a Sunday morning and we were the only ones. The walk up is a little steep at times - wear comfortable shoes - but quite quick. The view once you are up is pretty cool and definetely worth the hike.

Absolutely stunning views of the city. It's a steep, but quick hike. Stumbled upon this park by accident and I'm so glad we did! You can just park on the street.
