Summary:
The trail head can be hard to find if you don't know where you are going. Search for the equestrian center. The trail is one-way up to the area near Canyon Creek. Follow that up. Great 5% incline on the way up. At the Ghost Falls Trail, head back south on the Canyon Hollow trail. Keep left. I did not explore all the area here but there are many trails and loops.

Summary:
Three ways to the top. From fireroad on east bench, from equestrian park at the south end of 1300 East (rodeo grounds)most popular, and from Coyote Hollow and the new Potato Hill lot both up by the Draper temple.
Most round trips are about 4 miles around (up and down) and many come down one then up and down another.

Recommended Route:
Park at the equestrian park at the south end of 1300 east.
Go across the street and above the sidewalk up the switchback. Continue up about one mile to canyon hollow trail. Go up to the top and switch back onto Brocks trail to peak View. Here you can go down Rush (downhill only) fast and furious with jumps along the trail, or go back down Brocks trail and up canyon hollow to the road. Then left half mile to Ghost Falls. Going down this is fast switchbacks through the trees to the falls. Take south loop to continue down to the top of lower corner canyon trail and continue down to equestrian park.
If you are a good climber continue up the trail above Peak View to the summit then left up and around the hill and north to Jacobs Ladder and down to Ghost Falls. I cant climb this one.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
From Coyote Hollow go up BST (bonneville shoreline trail) then take Clarks trail at the bridge and climb about 1.5 miles to Peak view. Or turn off at the top onto Anns trail (new 9/2011) to long downhill along the rim to Potato Hill lot. Then under highway for 2 mile loop or return to Coyote Hollow

Also building new skills dirt park at equestrian lot and soon a new outdoor Velodrome
This Area is opening new trails all the time

Summary:
Amazing trail system. We must go back to ride some others. Ther lower sections are a little hard to follow and poorly marked. Also the trail up to jacobs ladder are not marked at all. That being said we found our way thanks to all the great people on the trail. I am a midwesterner and was out in SLC on business. i have biked at various places all over the country. That in mind, the bikers we meet in Corner Canyon were the friendliest we have meet anywhere, period. I would like to give thanks to all the local riders on suggesting routes to take and helping us find our way to the top. All the welcoming bikers and friendly faces made the 2000ft of climbing much more bearable for us low altitude mountain bikers.

Recommended Route:
We took Corner canyon trail up to Corner caynon rd then, with the help of many fellow riders, found our way to jacobs ladder and followed ghost falls back down to the Equestrian center parking lot.

Summary:
Ride up the jeep trail until it forks about 1/2 mile up and take the left fork heading east. This rapidly turns into a technical single track horse trail. This part of the ride is quite challanging with three distinct tough spots. Then you will end on a long steep but not technical grunt that brings you to the top of the Corner Canyon Road. From there you can go anywhere that there is not a sign saying keep out. I usually go right or west for about 300 yards and take the jeep trail to the left. This hooks up with a well marked race course that is marked with surveyors tape. I follow that to the east and then (here is the trickey part), you have to look for a trail that splits off to the left (north east) if you start heading down hill then you have gone too far. Follow that trail towards Lone Peak and you will come out near the top of Jacobs Ladder trail. This is the best ridable way to that trail. Then it is a wild ride back down to the Corner Canyon Road. Here you can do two different rides. One; you can go left (uphill) on the road for about 1/4 mile and come to the single track horse trail that you came up originally or two; you can go right (downhill) and have a great 40 mph dirt road experiece but then you have to catch the pipeline trail at the bottom that takes you back to the rodeo grounds. If you miss the pipeline trail then you can just take Highland Drive back. There is one other option, if you go up Canyon Road and keep going past the horse trail you will end up in the Suncrest Developement and you can take a 50+ mph screamer down the paved fourlane road that empties out back on Highland Drive again. This is a lot of fun but it eats knobby tires.

Recommended Route:
Most people seem to be going the wrong way for the good stuff. Take Highland Dr. to the rodeo grounds and you will see a jeep trail that takes off right from there. This will get you to the real trail.

Reviewed by: Johnny D , from Draper, UT

Summary:
This area has some fantastic trails, but be warned. The entire area is a political bulls**T mess right now. The land owners don't like bikers and have tried to restrict access to bikers and at the same time four-wheeling and motorcycling their way around the whole canyon and chopping up the hillside with new subdivisions. With that said it is worth the pain to take one of the funner loops in the valley. Here is the route I recommend: Take the main fire road up about half a mile, the road will fork with the main road going to the right, go to the left straight up the hill. You will hit a smaller fire road crossing your trail, take a right turn there. This smaller road will turn into a steep climb for about a quarter mile and put you on top of a sandy knoll, you will have a good view of much of corner canyon at this point. Follow the smaller road down a steep sandy descent and then it flattens out when you cross a creek(creek#1). You there meet up with an older fire road taking you zig-zag all the way up to hog hollow road - a fantastic climb, but don't go all the way up unless you want to increase your chances of a run in with land owners. After you have made your initial climb you will see a jeep road to your right, to your left is a small single-track that crosses the creek (creek #2 - same creek though) , go left. Enjoy an eight stepped climb that links you up to another single track split, don't go up, go down to your right, zoom, zoom, zoom. Hard pack roller coaster ride through a beautiful trail that links up to the original fire road you left. Descend to the bottom of your original ascent and look left, a secret single track lays hidden up a little gulley, take that, if you get back to the first creek you crossed you have gone too far. Go up the gulley through beautiful forest, when the trail forks hike-a-bike 30 feet to the plateau and zoom your way down some seriously steep forested single track. From there you can read the other reviews on where to go. I love this trail and will ride it as long as i can. the problems that mountainbikers face in our society are perfectly represented in the clash with property owners on this trail. In life there are people that have fun and people that are pissed about others having fun, that is just the way it is.

Recommended Route:
On I-15 take Draper/123rd south exit and go east. Take a right on 13th east and go south about 2 miles, the road will hit a T after going under a small bridge, turn left and park at the end of the road, ride the grated road up to the trails.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Yellowfork trail on West side of valley, mui excellente
