Ascent Trip Report

Dad, Andrea, and I drove to the start of the short trail to Ensign Peak and hiked to the top. The trail winds around the peak, beginning below it to the south and then circling towards the summit from the north, and it affords fantastic views of the valley to the north, then west, then south.

The south view is the one to come for: You can see for miles, and State Street stretches in a nearly-straight line far down the valley.
