WisemtnBiked from Dry Creek  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 19, 2010
I had hiked this a couple of times before in 2004. Extremely short and easy - not even a mile. I rode my mountain bike from Dry Creek on BST and explored a section I hadn't done before and ended up at Ensign Peak. Great views of the city!

Trail run 3/23/14
Biked up 4/18/14

I've hiked a lot of 'urban peaks' the last few years during business trips and the like and I've got to say that the Ensign Peak trail had, hands down, the creepiest / shadiest / scariest visitors of any urban trail visited yet! Yikes! The good news is, I figured I could out-run the junkies and gang members. Neat views, especially liked looking down at the capitol.

Date Climbed: Jan 24, 2010


This little hike is great in the winter time. I hiked this with my girlfriend and her little brother after we sat around the house and couldn't figure out what to do. Pretty views of downtown SLC.

derektheredgreat exercise routine  Sucess!


i usually run up and down this little guy from my home on 1st avenue a couple times a week. adds some flair to what would otherwise be a rather tame run.

A very short hike to the top of a prominant Hill on the North east bench of salt lake city. Fun for the whole family.

kteichertdog's favorite place  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 6, 2009


Living on Center Street in Salt Lake City for 2 years, my dog had to endure condo life. She lived most of her time on the 10'x10' balcony of our first floor apartment. I took her out to walk every day to get her mind straight, and ensign was a personal favorite that we summitted several times. If you are anywhere near downtown Salt Lake and want spectacular views of the city, this is a must. It is very easy, but worth it. If you want to venture up the ridge to the northwest of Ensign, there are many deer, and I also found an arch in the rocks on the ridge northwest, across the gully, and above Ensign Peak. If anybody finds that arch, please post a pic of it here for me to see. I will verify if that is certainly the one I found as well. Happy trails.

edevartHistoric/Classic  Sucess!


I remember having campfires up here/around here as a kid--bet you can't get away with that nowadays.

I agree, not much of a 'climb', but a SLC classic nonetheless. Great views to the Great Salt Lake out west.

tmtn93Not even a peak  Sucess!


climbed it about 7 times all in a span from October 2007 to March 2008, got real sick of the hike and views now. The hike is piece of cake, anyone can easily do it without problem.

First time taking our baby boy on a hike (in backpack). It was over before I knew it, but views of the Salt Lake valley were nice.
