Hog Hollow Trail
The Hog Hollow Road begins at the northwest corner of Alpine and climbs to Traverse Ridge, where you can look north over the Salt Lake Valley, and south over Utah Valley. It's a nice 4-mile climb (1000 vertical feet). A worthwhile, easy-technical hillclimb in the summer, this road becomes RAD for advanced off-season biking. While other trails are buried in the snow, Hog Hollow is a different ride every day: one day it's an easy cruise on hard-pack snow; the next it's a gooey mud slop-fest. One day it's a slush-digging fishtailing corn-snow ride; the next day it's a raging torrent of muddy water over hard ice ledges. At the top of the ridge, you can admire the view over the Salt Lake Valley to the north (GPS N 40° 29.197' W 111° 49.294').

|Getting there, church "trailhead": Drive into Alpine from the south. At the
stop sign at 200 North, turn left (west) and drive 1/2 mile. Turn right up the hill. When
you see the big church, look for "Hog Hollow Road" on your left just before the
church. That's where you'll be going. Park near the church, then head
downhill and right onto Hog Hollow Road and ride 1/2 mile to the end of the
pavement. Climb the dirt, and veer slightly right onto a DT heading
northwest. Once on the Hog Hollow Road, ignore
smaller diverging roads, unless you want to play on them.
Burgess Park (Alpine): Head to main street in Alpine. At the traffic circle, turn left on Canyon Crest Road. When you see the park on your right, turn and find a parking spot. On your bike, head back to Canyon Crest, turn left on Long Drive, then right onto the paved bike lane in front of the homes on Ranch Drive. At the top of Ranch Drive where it ends on Westfield Road, the trail is just across the street.
|Corner Canyon: The Corner Canyon end is found
by taking Draper Blvd (123rd South) to 13th East, turning right down the hill, then left
at the blinking light onto Pioneer Road. Go towards the mountains to 20th East, then turn
right. When the road turns to dirt, find the gate about 100 yards uphill (GPS N 40°
31.281' W 111° 50.081').
