Originally planned a day trip to Big Cottonwood Canyon but forecast chance of snow at the top which I wasn't prepared for so decided on a short trip to Ensign Peak Park instead as I read about the nice views from the top. Fortunately the weather had brightened up by midday when I arrived. Parked right by the entrance to... More

Long story short, I am visiting Utah (for work) for the first time ever and had pretty low expectations based on what I heard from others back home (I'm from WA state). But I've already been here a week and I'm amazed at some of the things I've seen and done. A group of us decided to hike up Ensign... More

There are two different viewing areas. We went as a family--my husband, myself, and our 4 kids. We all hiked up to the lower viewing area and then my husband and boys hiked up to the higher viewing area. It is well worth a stop, even if you do just the lower hike. Great view of the city!

We took this hike with several small kids-3 & under. The views are amazing and the signs provide a good history lesson for the Utah area.

Short, somewhat steep hike from a nearby parking lot. Really good view of the Salt Lake Valley. For those with Mormon pioneer heritage, it's a must-see stop. Children make it up with a few stops for rest. Trail is reasonably well-maintained, although not paved, so flip-flops may present issues.

Mormon History is always involved in Utah. If you enjoy history and beauty there is a great combination here. Go and enjoy.

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
