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.

The hike up was perfect for our family, which includes a 9 and 12 year old. Actually, our 9 year old bolted up like a jack rabbit! The informational points along the way were full of history behind the settling of the Salt Lake city...More

This park is a bit hidden with some historical information on the bottom part. There is a walking path to the hill and if we continue to follow this path approximately 15-20 minutes then we will be rewarded with a very nice view to the...More

A total must do when you visit Salt Lake City. It’s in a residential area. It’s only a 20-30 min hike up depending on how quick you hike. Views from the top are amazing.

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
