Quick short trail, heavily trafficked.

I brought my family from out of town on this hike and it was sooooo beautiful. There’s a dirt trail next to a paved one so you have options. 10/10 recommend the dirt trail. Just some challenging parts for the little ones but definitely do-able.

Very easy hike, good for all ages.

Such a nice easy hike! Great if you have dogs :)

This was a really great hike with great views, but there are no bathrooms!! There's also a park just a little ways south of the trailhead, and there are no bathrooms there either.

Great views at the top of the hike. Loose rocks make the walk down a little dangerous.

A casual walk more than a hike. The view is scenic and worth the walk to the top.

Classic SLC Trail ! In many ways, this trail opened many other adventures for me ! Great trail for beginners, kids and offers the opportunity get to see other locals

don’t forget your book of M.

Nice view but really tracked out and muddy

This one is a fun and everyday type hike. Beautiful views of downtown and the two mountain ranges. Also, at the peak there is great history of the landscape of the valley and how the city was developed overtime.

It took me 20 minutes at a moderate pace to go up and a little more than 20 minutes down. It's a bit rocky in some places, so if you're not confident on your footing, it feels slippery. It seems to always be crowded at the top.

Nice easy little hike with some good views of the Salt Lake Valley

It was pretty easy and had a beautiful view of Dt and the capital building

Nice hike, would start the black mountain trail up higher, park on city creek and bonneville trail Blvd.

Good trail to start off in SLC, overlooking the city, beautiful at the top!

Great hike. Beautiful view of downtown! I plan to have friends and family try this trail out when they visit.

Amazing views of salt lake city

It’s a beautiful overlook. Steeper than you think but short. There’s street parking at the trailhead.

A bit short, but the view is fantastic.

good walk

Not bad hike to gain some elevation to watch the sunrise

Loved it. Very easy hike even for a beginner like me. Parts of it are steep but I went up and down in like half an hour. Good for a nice workout.

Though we've walked this trail many times, this is the first time we stayed past dark. It's amazing to watch the city light up after dark. It may be a good place for stargazing too. Keep in mind in the summer, since it gets dark later to park in the right spot so you don't get ticket. After 10pm they issue parking tickets of $30. (Which rise all the way to $150 if not paid within a particular time period.)

I thought the view was great but there was graffiti and trash all over. Kind of disappointing. And, while labeled easy, it’s a bit of a uphill and not easy for many.

Easy hike to the top at Ensign Peak! Beautiful views! A bit rocky but somewhat easy to navigate. Also a fun place to watch planes take off in the distance. Beautiful view of The Great Salt Lake.

LOVED this trail! Shade, off leash for dogs and a babbling creek the entire way for the kids and furry friends to play in. When we visit Utah again we will surely return!

easy for beginning bikers

Great place for dogs to play in the creek. I'd love for this to be a running trail, but it only goes back for about a mile before it's too sketchy to run anymore.
