Check out this local hike for the best views of SLC! Hike The Living Room Length: 2.3 miles | Elevation Gain: 980 feet Great views of the SLC valley Located on the furthest outcropping of Mt Wire Peak in the Wasatch Mountain Range on, the Living Room Hike is so named because of the rocks that are in the shape of loveseats, couches and lounge chairs at the top. Directions: To get to the trailhead from I-15, you take the exit for 400 South and follow that all the way up to Red Butte Gardens near the University of Utah. If you are punching it into Google Maps, make sure you are going to the hiking entrance with an official-looking sign.
