Corner Canyon trails are closed periodically after heavy rainfall to protect the trails from damage. Closures are generally posted here.
Please observe all trail closures for everyone's sake.
This is a 6-mile route that can be done in either direction. Going clockwise will net you about 2.5 miles of uphill and 3.5 miles of downhill. Trails are well groomed, generally not technical, but there are some occasional rocks and roots to watch out for.
Need to Know
There are numerous parking lots that can be utilized to access Corner Canyon trails. The two most popular are the Equestrian Center, located off Highland Drive, and Coyote Hollow which is a cul-de-sac behind the Draper Temple, which can be seen from miles away and serves as a good landmark.
The trails in Corner Canyon are well maintained and heavily utilized so you'll encounter mountain bikers, runners, and hikers. Please be careful.
Starting at the Coyote Hollow trailhead, head north on the Canyon Hollow Trail
. As with most trails in Corner Canyon, this trail is well maintained, buffed out singletrack and isn't technically difficult. This trail is well shaded, so it's popular in the warmer months and gets heavy mountain bike use so you'll want to pay attention for that to avoid any conflicts. The trail gains about 1,000 vertical feet from beginning to end, and while not technically difficult, certainly makes for a good workout.
Follow Canyon Hollow Trail
to the intersection of Brock's
and make a sharp right. From here you'll end up at a parking lot/corral that serves as the terminating point of almost all trails in Corner Canyon. From here you'll run down Ann's Trail
, continuing past the intersection with Clark's until you reach a tunnel under Traverse Ridge Rd.
From here you'll continue right which becomes Potato Hill Trail
briefly before it intersects with Bonneville Shoreline Trail - Draper. Stay right, run past a few mansions and you end up at the intersection with the bottom of Clark's. From here you make a left and make your way back to the Coyote Hollow trailhead.
This route can be done in reverse as well.
Flora & Fauna
