It's not as if Utah lacks of hiking and other outdoor opportunities, however Ensign Peak is a wonderful escape from the Salt Lake City hustle and bustle. Easy 15-20 min hike to the summit, depending on your fitness level (I still recommend wearing proper shoes and taking a small bottle of water). We went there in the morning and evening and both choices were great. Perhaps the late afternoon / pre-sunset version was slightly better. It was actually my No. one activity in SLC, because you get to see the city in all its glory.…

Loved this short, easy hike! Only 20 min to the top. Lots of photo opportunities and gorgeous views! Only 5 min uber from downtown. Easy to navigate especially for solo hikers. I enjoyed the nature, birds, mountains and valley views! Bring sunscreen. Come for sunset! Enjoy!

Tackled this on our first day in Salt Lake City. Sweeping views of the city and charming homes on the path there. A must for your time in SLC!

I did this hike in sandals! I did get slightly winded since its mostly a steady incline, but overall a quick and fun hike! Definitely try and time this to do around sunset because you bascially can see all of downtown salt lake once you get to the top!

Great little hike (< mile) right behind the state Capitol building. Street parking and a well marked and easy to follow trail. Views are incredible. Go see where the original settlers surveyed the valley and decided to build the city.
