Overview

Ann's Trail is an east-west singletrack route, built in 2011, running just below the crest of Traverse Mountain. It was started as the Draper Rim Trail, but has been renamed in honor of Ann Parr. You must reach the trail via other trails, so the total ride length will depend on your selection of trailhead. The most logical ride is the Draper Rim Loop consisting of Ann's, Bonneville Shoreline Trail (BST), and Clarks Trail. The minimum distance for this loop is 10.2 miles, with 1200 feet of total climbing.

Description

The Draper Rim Loop (Ann's, B.S.T., and Clark's) is 10.1 miles, plus whatever distance you covered to get to the loop. The quickest access points are the Potato Hill TH on Traverse Mountain Road and the Red Rock TH on Mike Wier Drive, followed by the Coyote Hollow TH at the base of Clarks.
The Equestrian trailhead adds about 3 miles to the ride. Even longer is arrival via the BST from Sandy or via Hog Hollow from Alpine. Hog Hollow will add 7 miles and almost 1000 vertical feet of additional climbing.

Access:
  • Lower Corner Canyon (Equestrian Center) Trailhead: Take the Bluffdale exit from I-15 and turn east towards the mountains. Continue on Highland Drive until you reach the ballpark parking lot. Directly across the street from the parking, the Lower Corner Canyon trail heads uphill (GPS N 40 30.351' W 111 50.721'). To reach the trailhead from the north (Sandy area), take 13th East southward until it ends at the stop sign just past the underpass. Turn left and drive 1/4 mile. Take the Lower Corner Canyon Trail, veering right at 1 mile to reach Clarks.
  • Mike Weir (Red Rocks) trailhead: Leave I-15 and climb the hill as above, but turn right at the light on Traverse Mountain Road. After one mile, watch for Mike Weir Drive on your left. The trailhead is on your right, 1/2 mile later. At the fork, head east (left) on BST to arrive at Clarks.
  • Potato Hill trailhead: Leave I-15 and climb the hill on Highland Drive as above. Turn right at the light on Traverse Mountain Road. Look for the Potato Hill TH on your left about mile 1.3 from the light.
  • Traverse Ridge (Peak View TH, top of Clarks): Under development. Will be served by paved road; expected to have bathroom, tables, paved hiking/view loop.
    Facilities: There's a toilet at the upper Ghost Falls trailhead (where it meets the Corner Canyon road), at the BST trailhead on the Corner Canyon Road and at the Equestrian Center parking. Water is available only at the Equestrian Center. There are no facilities at Red Rocks, Potato Hill, or Coyote Hollow.
  • Deer Ridge trailhead: From I-15 in Salt Lake City, take the Bluffdale exit and head east on Highland Drive toward the mountains. As you reach the traffic light at the top of the hill, about 3/4 mile after leaving the freeway, turn right on Traverse Ridge Road. Drive about two miles up to the top of the mountain. At the stop sign in Suncrest, turn right on Deer Ridge Drive and go 0.9 miles. Just before the road crosses a bridge, turn right onto Elk Glen Drive and immediately turn left to park at the small picnic area. At the kiosk, go straight west, keeping left at the trail fork 30 feet from the kiosk. Ann's Connector will take you down to Ann's trail.

Trail muddy in spots. If you are careful you can avoid the mud. Trail in good shape overall. Good fun. The climb up Clark's was a leg burner. — 1h 50m
