Overview

This little peak is the perfect way to view the city. Just don't do it on the hottest day of the year because you'll hate it. Take a picnic and watch the sunset. Ensign Peak is at the north end of the Salt Lake Valley, above the State Capitol building. Two days after arriving in the Salt Lake Valley, Brigham Young and seven other pioneer leaders climbed the mountain to survey the valley. From its summit they laid out in their minds the city they intended to build. A small monument now sits on the summit.'
