Caliper brakes and steady balance. Corner Canyon (Lower)
Corner Canyon offers a low-altitude, off-season single-track that's a joy to ride. It's quick to ride and close to civilization. Perfect for an after-work ride in early spring or late fall, when other trails are still covered by snow. A good quick winter loop ride is uphill on the Lower Corner Canyon trail, around the Silica Pit, and back down on the Creek View trail. It's doubletrack for some of the uphill and singletrack in the trees (trickier and snowier) on the downhill. The loop is about 2.8 miles. Elevation gain is 350 feet. Riding time depends on your skill level, but will be somewhere around 30 minutes. We usually run around the loop 2 or 3 times. In warmer weather, Lower Corner Canyon connects to Clarks, Ghost Falls, and the Bonneville Shoreline.
Riding notes, winter figure-8 loop:
0.0   Straight uphill on ST as it exits tunnel
0.4   Pass return ST on R, then join uphill ST
0.6   ST joins DT, continue uphill
0.9   Pass BST (on L), veer R
1.0   Keep R on DT at fork
        Becomes ST, follow either fork
1.3   Junction with Silica Pit Tr, fork L
        (R = Clarks Trailhead)
1.6   L on DT then keep straight
        (after 200 feet, back on uphill DT)
1.8   L on ST (climbs quickly)
2.4   Junction with LCC trail, hard L
2.8   Back at tunnel
Getting there: Take the Bluffdale exit from I-15 and turn east towards the mountains on Highland Drive. Go straight past the railroad underpass. Stay on Highland until you reach the parking area for the Lynn Ballard ball park on your left. To find the trail, go to the west end of the parking area near the trail kiosk. Drop down the hill and turn left into the tunnel under the road. After climbing out of the tunnel, turn left and climb back up. The uphill trail is directly across from the entrance into the parking area (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 to the ballpark parking.
