|Draper Race Loop
Includes Lower Corner Canyon Trail, Corner Canyon Road, Clarks Trail, Bonneville Shoreline Trail, Spring Hollow Trail, and Highland Drive Trail. The Draper Race Loop climbs from Highland Drive to Traverse Ridge. The loop is 9.1 miles in length, starting at 4600 feet elevation and climbing to 5800. While most of the ride is in oak and maple forest, much of the climb is sun-exposed and can get hot in mid-summer. Overall this ride is intermediate technical. There are a few tight switchbacks and tricky turns that only experts will ride cleanly. The ride starts at the parking area for the Lynn Ballard Ball Park on Highland Drive in Draper. You'll see the singletrack trail heading uphill directly across from the parking entrance.

|Getting there: Leave I-15 at the Bluffdale exit and go
east on Highland Drive. 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.
To get to the Mike Weir 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.
