If you want to see all of SLC this is where you want to be. Great any time of day, but amazing at dawn and dusk. Just a short drive from the Capital. Also a great hill to hike for an even better view if...More
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.
This vision of the founders of SLC were to have used this parcel and pinnacle to map out the plan. It is a great place to see the entire valley, and as well the Capital and grounds. The evening Sunsets also allow the view of...More
As we often do when we visit a city we have not been to before, we drive around to see what we can see. During our wandering around Salt Lake City, we went up the hill and the State Capital Building. We continued up into...More
This historic site has a beautiful view of the Salt Lake Valley including the Great Salt Lake. This s the site where Brigham Young and some other pioneers viewed the valley and made a remarkable prophesy. To walk to the top of the Peak is...More
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

Not aware of any hours. I like to hike it near sunset, watch the sunset and the city light up, then head down. Not dangerous if you bring a headlamp, the path is easy and its a popular area. I've done plenty of sketchier... More
Not aware of any hours. I like to hike it near sunset, watch the sunset and the city light up, then head down. Not dangerous if you bring a headlamp, the path is easy and its a popular area. I've done plenty of sketchier hikes during night time. By that I mean no one else on the trail, steep drop offs and a rough trail, none of which you'll encounter here.

I am in my fifties and it took me about 25 minutes. No hurry, just enjoy.

Scenic drive during Christmas weekend (10 Replies)
Our friend mentioned about Salt Flats in Utah. But i am not sure about the weather if it is the right season to go to Bonneville Salt Flats from Salt Lake City? Any suggestions? Salt Lake has several beautiful scenic drives. Can you suggest any other scenic drive in winter? Is Silver lake in Big Cottonwood or Mirror Lake byway safe to drive during this time? For scenic outlook for the city, we are thinking to go to Ensign Peak Park. Will it be open during Christmas day? Thank you!!!

IMO, the drive out to the salt flats isn't particularly scenic; especially in the winter. It's all freeway and desert. Frankly, I wouldn't drive out there. If you want to see the Great Salt Lake, you should go to Antelope Island State Park which is about 45 north of SLC. The safety of any driving you'd do during Christmas weekend is going to depend on current weather conditions, the suitability of your vehicle for snow conditions and your comfort in driving in snow conditions. The drive...More
