Mountain Biking Corner Canyon Trail

*****   Add a review
#27 of 691 mountain bike trails in Utah
#693 in the world

There are several options here, and all the trails are great, but here is my
favorite. From the trailhead, climb the dirt road up until you reach the first
picnic shelter. Take the trail, not the road, from this shelter, which will
eventually hit a double track. Taking this double track right will be a short
ride and take you back to the trailhead (you pass this double track on your
climb.) Take a left on this double track a short way until you reach several
trails leading away where the double track ends. Take the trail on the
slight right, which winds a bit all the way down into the canyon, where it
meets another double track (going right.) Keep your eyes open for a single
track coming off this double track (if you hit pavement, backtrack a bit...) to
the left. Follow the one-way signs all the way down, through a dry (mostly)
creek bed, under a concrete overpass, and take the steep, short hill up to
the parking lot. From here, take Highland drive again to the left with a
good climb on a paved road to reach the trailhead where you parked.

For a much longer ride, keep going past the first picnic shelter to the
second, and enjoy the falls. There are tons of other trails back there and
they all eventually lead down and out of the canyon at mostly the same
points.

    A lot of fun, make sure you ride "rush"! Alot of options here but no mater how you get to the top or what other trails you ride here you absolutely have to ride rush down!

    One word - incredible. Great flowy trails for miles. Another "must do" and a certain can't miss. May even rival some of the Park City trails for just sheer fun. Loved it. I can see why the locals are so sad this hidden gem is now been discovered. It really is the real deal. Kudus to the trail designers and all the trail workers. The corner canyon is phenomenal.

    Nice run. Uphill from the beginning but not very difficult. Hard, compact soil that wasn't too sandy or dry today.

    Fun and easy. It will get your heart pumping on the uphill - but not too steep. The ride down is smooth. It is awesome riding through the trees. The trail gets hot so ride either in the morning or at night

    I've been all over Utah--St. George, Moab, all throughout the wasatch mountains. And no matter what, I always end up going more to Corner Canyon than anywhere else. I guess that might have to do with its accessibility, in part, but make no mistake, this system of trails is fantastic! A variety of options to explore, every route is a little different and unique. Not many jumps (except for Rush which has a few), but all the trails flow very well and have amazing turns! The one downside is that you will often encounter hikers or, at the very least, a lot of uphill traffic when you're trying to go downhill. I've never run into anyone so if you're a good rider you won't either, and I don't feel like I've sacrificed my experience, so don't worry about it ruining things, just be aware that it's a busy place. Rush is a downhill only ride too, so if you just want to rip down like there's no tomorrow, try it.

    Lower rush is open and its sick. Nice and flowy with some small features.

    Fun group of trails with alot of options to mix and match. Some decent downhill portions with fairly easy uphills.

    Fun run. I like to go after work. Pretty quick. Over in less than an hour if you're in a hurry but plenty of options if you want to drag it out.
