Very nice view

A medium hard 20 min hike gets you to the peak. Very very nice view of SLC and the surrounding area. In summer would suggest to go about 1 he before sunset.

I am not a hiker at all but this was about 2 miles of an uphill challenge. my kids thought it was not too difficult. getting to the top (we went right before sunset) and looking down on the valley was breath taking. try to go early or late but I think the parking was restricted after 10pm because it's...

We treked all the way from around the temple, checking out the Capitol on the way. It's a long walk from down there! And it was high 90s and sunny. Bring a hat- there's not much shade- and plenty of water. Trail is pretty well marked, and the views are great. You can see the Lake, and all of the... More

Parking seems a little limited. It's a little park surrounded by houses, and you park on the street. Go early in the morning- there is very little shade, and it's very hot in the summer. If you want to go all the way up to Ensign Peak, be prepared with lots of water. It's a half mile trail there, and... More

If you want a fairly easy hike start at the trail head. For a better workout begin downtown, anywhere south of the Temple. Our hike began a Little America Hotel and took about 3.5 hours. The first challange was reaching the Capitold Building. Next the hike gets more challenging, even though you are walking up pave streets. The elevation begins... More

I was so wanting to find this place, but about 1/2 mile from final destination took me to a dead end road. Wish I knew how to get there.

Ensign Park is a great spot to watch the sunset in Salt Lake City. Located just around the corner from the capital building, it is easy to reach from downtown. It has a "high point" and "low view point" for watching the sunset. We aren't excellent hikers, so we chose the lower viewpoint and it was beautiful. Full view of... More

We wanted a better view of the mountains and someone local recommended this place to us. It's a steep hike to the top. If you're planning to go all the way up, be prepared. There is an easier climb with a gorgeous view if you're not that into hiking.

Nice, quick hike with the kids! Pretty view. Easy access to get to. Simple hike if you're looking for something shorter and not hard.

This is really just a quarter-mile hike (though a little sleep, but nothing too bad), but once at the peak you'll have one of the great views you'll ever experience. Definitely one of those things you have to do when in Salt Lake City.
