DRAPER, Utah. A Ribbon Cutting was held today at the Little Valley Instructional Trails located at 1402 East Traverse Ridge Road . The trail system is a little over a mile long and features trails that are marked from beginner to intermediate for hikers and mountain bikers.
Lynn McDonald, Chair of Healthy Draper, says that she worked with Draper City and others to design and built a family-friendly trail system to “help riders learn the basic skills, safety and etiquette of mountain biking, which is a fun, noncompetitive and healthy outdoor activity.”
Healthy Draper worked with Draper City to put this project together. Healthy Draper received donations from the Mathewson Charitable Lead Trust #2, Corner Canyon Trails Foundation Committee, Draper City, Dixon Family, Gough Construction, Mt. America Credit Union, 1-800-Contacts, Lone Peak Hospital, Les Schwab Tire, and Silverhawk Enterprises. www.healthydraper.com
Healthy Draper was founded in 2002 and has grown from a small locally-funded, grass roots organization, to a federally-registered non-profit organization that receives funding from local donors, and private and public grant programs.
