Hike is short, but steep, so it's tougher than you think it would be. The views are great from the top and the plaques are interesting to read for historical information. We stopped up to view the sunset and were not disappointed.

Great hike of less than a mile one way for wonderful views -- but steep. Short paved trail also available for the less adventurous. Don't miss the short paved walk on the other side of the road with new interesting plaques about the area. Nice...More

This is a great short climb if you're looking to get out of the car for some fresh air and nice views of the area. Some spots are a little tricky, so this hike is definitely in the moderate range.

Ensign Peak Park is FREE to enter and has free parking at its entrance. The walk up to the viewpoint takes 15-20 minutes and is not too hard. Breathtaking views at the top definitely make it worth the effort.

This is a fairly hard hike if you are older or very young. The views from the top are worth the hike! There are no bathrooms or drinking water, so be prepared.
