Inscription
July 26, 1847, two days after the Mormon pioneers entered this valley Brigham Young and party climbed to this point and with the aid of field glasses made a careful survey of the mountains, canyons and streams. In the group were Heber C. Kimball, Wilford Woodruff, George A. Smith, Ezra T. Benson, Willard Richards, Albert Carrington and William Clayton.

Wilford Woodruff, first to ascend the peak, suggested it as a fitting place to "set up an ensign" (Isaiah 11:12). It was then named Ensign Peak. Subsequently the Stars and Stripes were raised here.
