Corner Canyon Trails

Corner Canyon Trails

Draper, Utah
Family friendly area in Little Valley

The city of Draper heard its residents loud and clear after they responded to surveys by asking for more trails. The city preserved 3,500 acres of land in Corner Canyon and along the Traverse Mountains to provide one of the most progressive trail systems around. All non-motorized users have access, and are managed through a smart combination of dual-direction shared-use trails with some single-use and single-direction trails.

Corner Canyon has 45 miles of trails that include a three-mile mountain bike specific descending flow trail. Additions included a “winter loop” giving trail users several miles of south-facing sandy slopes that are useable during rain or snow. There are also two bike-only, black diamond downhill shuttle runs as well. 

The neighboring canyon of Little Valley provides a gateway into mountain biking for kids and families, with lifted-and-tilted flow trails made for everyone to enjoy.

The local NICA (high school racing) team, which is one of the largest in the U.S., uses the trails for training. The team has a program for students with physical or cognitive disabilities, and works to integrate them so they can race with their teammates. Draper's trails provide a great example of fully-integrated community involvement in trails. 

IMBA Trail Solutions' Joey Klein and Randy Spangler worked with many partners along the way, including Draper Parks and Trails, Corner Canyon Trails and Open Space Foundation, Alpine Trails, FlowRide, the Boy Scouts, Scheels and countless volunteers.
