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 .
Many visitors like the fact that Corner Canyon is not only conveniently located but since it’s located at a lower altitude, it can be enjoyed a lot earlier in the spring and a lot later in the fall. Below is current up-to-date information on what’s new in Corner Canyon.
Draper Trail Days is this Monday. Please check the Upcoming events section for details.
Important trail change on Creek view - The steep section towards the end of Creek view has been rerouted. Please use caution and always keep your speed under control as this is a multipurpose trail.
Weekly hikes are back: Hikes start from the Equestrian Center at 5:30pm on Mondays. Meet over at the restroom building. Any questions, contact Julie at 801-244-3323.
Sign-up for our new newsletter today: We’ve added an area to the right for you to enter your email address where we can send you a newsletter a couple times a year to keep you up-to-date on anything new in Corner Canyon.
We need your help: The Corner Canyon area is closed to all motor vehicles except on the Upper Corner Canyon Road when the gates are open. The Hog Hollow Road and all other dirt roads leading to Alpine and Highland are also closed to motor vehicles. This area was just purchased by Draper City for Open Space. Its only a matter of time until fire season gets here and the illegal vehicle access compounds the risk. There has been excessive abuse in all areas recently . If you see something, say something. It is very helpful to get a description and even better, a photo of a license plate of offenders. To report illegal behavior, call Dispatch at 801 840 4000. Thank you.
Trail Conditions info: Please check the trail conditions section for up-to-date information from the city. We can all go a little nuts when we want to get out and ride but it’s critical that we always protect the trails from damage until they’re ready. There are always trails that can be ridden when the other trails are closed and are listed in the trails conditions section.
Steep Mountain: In case you are unaware, Steep Mountain is in danger of being lost to mining operations. If you live anywhere near this area or are into hang gliding or don’t want to see this the landscape dramatically change, you might want to check out the following website asap: SaveSteepMountain.org.
Latest news: We’re currently in the process of starting a new non-profit which has been named the Corner Canyon Trails and Open Space Foundation. This new Foundation is being established to help fund the development of new trails and other improvements in Corner Canyon and the newly acquired 2200+ acres. If you have any experience in setting up a non-profit from an accounting and/or legal background, please call Bill at 818-480-8026. Also, we’ll be looking for anyone who would be willing to help us out that has a background in grant writing.

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.
