Welcome to Corner Canyon

We’re excited to get this website up and running to help inform and educate visitors, both new and old, to the Corner Canyon area. Over the years, many of us have either stumbled upon, heard from a friend or neighbor, or attended a running or biking event in Corner Canyon. No matter how you were introduced to the area, the more time you spend here, the more you love it. Somehow Corner Canyon has an almost addictive quality about it and most people can’t wait to squeeze in one more hike, walk with their dog or bike ride.

 Red Potato Trail

We have recently completed the new Red Potato Trail that heads down from Potato Hill to the Bst heading towards Red Rock. This now allows visitors to park at the Red Rock Trailhead, which is off of Mike Weir Drive, instead of the overcrowded Coyote Hollow Trailhead and climb this new trail up to Potato Hill. This is a great new trail and was funded by the Corner Canyon Trails Foundation.

Little Valley Loop

Little Valley is located on the other side of Traverse Ridge road from the Potato Hill Trailhead. To get there, you can park at Potato Hill and take the tunnel under Traverse Ridge and head a short distance to the Little Valley Trailhead. This new trail is great for families with kids who would like to go for a short hike. This trail is also great if you want to take your dog for a good hike through the woods. If you’re heading up to Peak View on your mountain bike, head through the tunnel and add this little loop onto your ride.

Cool, Clean, Water–  So you’re heading up from the Equestrian Center on the Lower Corner Canyon Trail and you turn up the fire road  and a couple hundred yards in it dawns on you; you forgot to fill your water bottle. Well look to your right and there it is, a new water fountain. This water fountain is located on the fire road a little below the road that heads up to Canyon Hollow. There’s also a faucet to fill a container for your dog on those hot days.

New Article in the Tribune:  Dogs and the Watershed

Update:  We’ve put up some leashes at most of the trailheads that visitors can borrow who may may have forgotten their leash at home. Its critical that all visitors with dogs use a leash so hopefully this will help.
