Nice short hike, great view  Sucess!

Steeper climb to top than I expected but pretty easy; Ensign Mound and the Hell Canyon trail are worth a quick stop too. Little bit crowded on a Friday afternoon with families dragging very unhappy children to the top. Go on non-peak times.

Nice views, Easy walk  Sucess!

Took family up this short walk. Nice views on a clear day. Had my friend Clint with us who was traveling West. Crowded trail, many people walking up to witness the view of Salt Lake City below.

Journey's 1st Mountain Hiking  Sucess!

Journey (18 months) hiked the whole way to the top. She is truly an ATB (All Terrain Baby). She also doesn't like the paved or man-made surfaces and goes for the toughest terrain possible and just loves climbing and running downhill. Went up at sunset and had a great time after doing The Living Room earlier in the day.

Ensign Peak  Sucess!

Have climbed this one several times and it is always a great hike, especially while higher elevation hikes are still snowy in the spring. There is access to the Bonneville Shoreline Trail fro Ensign Peak which is also a fun hike.

Ensign & Meridian  Sucess!

Busy trail up to Ensign Peak. Though I've lived in Utah most of my life this was my first time. Great views from the summit and good historical interpretation on the trail up. Lost most of the crowds on the way up to Meridian.

Nice View   Sucess!

Strolled up to see the view of the SLC valley. Makes you realize how uncity SLC is. I counted 10 tall buildings.

Nice Little Mountain  Sucess!

I'll always have a soft spot for this little peak: it was the first SP-listed peak I climbed when I got back into shape after about 15 years of almost no hiking.

Short and sweet  Sucess!

I love going up Ensign, and it's a great place to take visitors from out of town. For such a short hike, you get a superb view.

Quick Trip  Sucess!

Took 15? minutes to climb and less than 5 to run down. Cute little mountain with great views of SLC.

Quick run up  Sucess!

Ran with a friend from the Capitol to the summit and back. It was a quick workout and a great way to shake out the legs before our half marathon in Bryce Canyon tomorrow. Lovely views of the city and a storm-shrouded Wasatch to boot!

Watched the sunset on a beautiful fall evening. Then my wife and I handed out flashlights to all the kids for an enjoyable night hike down.

Shorter than I expected  Sucess!

Took my dog on this hike, and we were at the top in 20 mins... kept going on the trail north above city creek. Pretty reds and yellows of fall are coming out!
