Alert: Upper Corner Canyon Remains Closed

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, 2020.  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. Download PDF of Map

Draper Wildlife: Listen for a Lazuli Bunti singing in the foothills or look for the yellow Arrowleaved Basamroot lining the trails while enjoying the outdoors in Draper.
