Located above the Capitol on the north side of Salt Lake City, Ensign Peak is a popular local hiking destination. There are views in all directions from around the summit monument.

The peak's name comes from the Bible, as the founders of Salt Lake City wanted their new land to become the "ensign for the nations." Brigham Young and eight others began to plan Salt Lake City from the peak on July 26, 1847.
