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!

Nice evening/night hike with the kids  Sucess!

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!

Nice Walk with Pops  Sucess!

Nice leisurely walk on a gorgeous day in Salt Lake. Excellent views of the entire valley and even Mount Nebo to the south.

Quick Hike  Sucess!

Probably the shortest, easiest hike for its type of view. Nice look at SLC. Usually crowded, but only one other couple on top this day.

Nice views  Sucess!

I think this must be Utah's most popular trail.

Ensign  Sucess!

Out of respect for Brigham, I won't comment on the hike. We set basecamp on the road below. When we decided to set up advanced basecamp, we realized we had already summited. We rested and tried to soak in what we had accomplished. Fantastic views in a remote setting. Lightning strikes all around our party made our hair stand on end. Running descent!

Several times. Great views, and a good place to take visitors.

I did the standard route. It was a nice, sunny mid-autumn day.

Biked from Dry Creek  Sucess!

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

Standard route  Sucess!

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.

Nice little hike  Sucess!

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.

great 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.

On a date  Sucess!

Took a date on a hike up Ensign....I think we broke up shortly after this.........maybe it was the hike.....I dunno......she wasnt the girl for me!!

Great View of the Valley  Sucess!

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.
