You wake up just as the sun is rising over the mighty Wasatch Mountains, lace up your hiking boots, and grab your water bottles. Instead of going out through the garage, you leave the car and walk to the trailhead. Which trail today? Eagle Crest? Bonneville Shoreline? Maybe Maple Hollow? There are so many to choose from, right from your backyard.
SunCrest is home to some of Salt Lake County’s best hiking, biking, equestrian, and snowshoeing. Throughout the year, both residents and non-residents alike flock to the area for its breathtaking beauty, 360 degree views and ‘quick getaway’ access.
With miles of trails, open space, parks and bike paths, there is definitely something for everyone.
In 2004, Draper City along with the Trust for Public Lands, purchased 1,021 acres of land located in neighboring Corner Canyon. As part of the agreement from a conversation easement would be put into place ensuring its protection from future development. In 2012, Draper City purchased an additional 2,400 acres of land with the intent of preserving the vast majority as open space.
Corner Canyon is nestled in the foothills below the Lone Peak Wilderness Area, in the “corner” between the Wasatch Range and Traverse Ridge. SunCrest sits atop Traverse Ridge range.
