  • The trail up to it is well kept! It’s an easy stroll up to the “peak” Nice view, and many plaques with facts about the Salt Lake Valley!
  • A great stop in Salt Lake City to get a good view of all there is to explore. Well taken care of, and often one of the places not a lot of people seem to know about. Perfect for that selfie panorama!
