With a short hike, a beautiful overlook, and an interesting end to the hike, the Living Room trail is definitely a great little hike. Just above U of U’s campus is the beginning of the Living Room trail up to an overlook that looks out with an entire view of Salt Lake City.

The entire hike took about two and a half miles, so fairly short hike, but hiking in was a majority uphill. There weren’t every many steep uphill climbs, but there was a solid slow elevation gain that you had to climb up through.

At the end of the hike, you get to the overlook the sits above the U’s campus and looks out towards downtown Salt Lake. At the overlook, someone has setup a living room set with great slabs of the slate rock including a couch, a couple of chairs, and a coffee table. Unfortunately, there was sitting on all of the chairs and couch, while we took a break at the top, so I didn’t get a picture with them.
