The park is easy to get to and offers a great view of the city. There is an easy hike to a viewing spot, or a more strenuous hike to the actual ensign peak. Either way, take in the history (with interpretive plaques and monuments)...More

There is a low-level walk that gives a decent view of the luxury neighborhood and city view in the distance (without climbing the peak. Therefore this is do-able by almost anyone). However, it is ideal to climb the peak if you make it to the...More

Hiked with kids (5 and 3) and all could do it, but I wouldn't claim it's an easy hike. It's upward the entire time without switchbacks or many places to stop and rest, but it is short. It was also very windy at the top,...More

My family and I went up one of the many paths offered in this park. Had we more time, we would have stayed to just soak in the splendor. I would go here again in a heartbeat.

Bags of parking in May. Fairly easy hike, short although fairly steep in parts...just take your time and treasure the views.

We started just taking pictures then in a few minutes we were at the top. We have one senior on our group, she didn't feel good as soon as we park so she decided to stay with the car. Just FYI

No, Ensign peak is a short, but steep hike to the top of an overlook that overlooks Salt Lake City. If you are looking for a nice walk with great views, I'd walk around the Utah State Capitol grounds. There's lots to see... More

No, the trail head starts in a neighborhood with narrow streets. I would not bring an RV to this trailhead.
