Alert: Upper Corner Canyon Road Closure Starting July 1
In consultation with the Draper City Fire Department, the City Council has determined the Upper Corner Canyon Road starting at the Orson Smith trailhead will be temporarily closed to all vehicles, effective Wednesday, July 1. After one of the driest Springs on record and to help reduce the risk of fire ignition in this area as we enter the summer months, this decision will ensure our fire department has emergency access to the area if needed. If the Orson Smith trailhead parking lot is full, please park at the Andy Ballard Arena (equestrian center) on 1600 Highland Dr. For access to Lone Peak, consider using the Hammagogs Trail from Alpine City or the Sawmill Trail from Hidden Valley Trailhead in Sandy.

One of the amenities residents have named in surveys as very important to them is trails. Draper City has more than 90+ miles of trails for cycling, hiking and horseback riding. The trails interconnect and can take you from town up into the foothills of the Wasatch Front.
The city preserved more than 1,100 acres in Corner Canyon and 2,400 acres along the Traverse Mountains. Many trails offer breath-taking views of the Salt Lake Valley.
No Dogs Allowed in Corner Canyon Watershed
Dogs are not allowed in the Corner Canyon watershed area. This watershed supplies drinking water to Draper residents and is managed by WaterPro. There was a serious public health threat caused by dog owners who illegally allow their animals to pollute the water in Corner Canyon. To address this issue and protect the quality of the drinking water in Draper, the City Council voted to ban dogs from the watershed in 2016. In Ordinance No. 1197 it states: “It shall be unlawful for any person to take or permit any animal or to allow said animal to be within any watershed area so designated by ordinance.
Motorized Vehicles Prohibited
Please note that any motorized vehicles are not allowed on all trails, including the Cycle Park. Motorized vehicles include: remote control cars, golf carts, motorized scooters, etc. Please note that class 1 eBikes are allowed on the trails.
