my first time hiking here it easy trail to walk and enjoy.

Very fun hike and easy with my toddler on my back. There are a lot of mountain bikers so watch out! And there are quite a lot of snakes on this trail, non-venomous and venomous (rattlesnakes). I’ve been 3 times in the past week and have seen at least 3 snakes on each visit. Beautiful Mother’s Day today with my little boy and husband seeing all the wildflowers.

Hiked 4/26/2018. Saw two rattle snakes. It was a easy hike. I would go the same way I came in instead of hiking up then back down the driving path. But that way did offer great views just no shade.

Easy short hike with lots of deer and bikers. The view of the valley from the picnic area was beautiful! There are a bunch of different trails throughout the canyon. Ghost Falls is a small stream that waterfalls down the side of a hill and we walked past it thinking the falls were further down the trail.

although all trails mentions dogs on leash when you approach the trailhead you will see a no dogs watershed sign. biker city

This is the second time I've hiked this trail. We started further north on the Bonneville shoreline trail. In the summer there was a lot of poison ivy near the falls, but cool weather took care of that and you can really see the falls. On a Tuesday morning there aren't many other people on this trail, just some nice deer.

Not as enjoyable because you are constantly watching for mountain bikers and moving out of their way.

Fun, easy hike. Took our five kids (10,9,6,5,5). They had no problem at all. The falls are pretty underwhelming at least when we went there, no good spot to really see much, it’s kind of tucked into some shrub overgrowth. But it’s just fun to have a hike with some little streams and such, especially for the kids. Tons of biking, but they’re usually very aware so no issues even with small kids. We take family here to walk through fall leaves. The leaves linger a bit longer here than higher areas like a Brighton or Timp.

Ann's is great for adventurous beginners to intermediate riders, or part of a longer loop for more advanced. Fantastic views from the southern section not shown on map, the best part of the trail!

My favotite Corner Canyon mtb outing. Easy hike, but Not for beginner mt bikers, intermediate for sure.

Easy walking trail, good for my 4 month puppy!

We hiked all the way up to the top , where there is a picnic table , never saw any sort of falls. We started on the canyon hollow trail , and from there we took the ghost falls trail . Mild hike

I did this one in the January 2017.

This is a very well trafficked and maintained trail. I've been many times. My biggest worry always is the amount of rattlesnakes I've seen through out the years. They shouldn't be bothersome, but keep alert for them just in case.

The waterfall isn't very big and the view of ghost falls was mostly blocked by overgrowth. A cool and easy hike for most people.

Easily one of the most disappointing hikes I've done in the Salt Lake Valley. This might be a good trail for early in the spring or late in the fall, but the trail is mostly exposed and offered very little relief from the mid-summer heat. The falls are not well marked, and as other reviewers have commented, overgrown and hidden. We actually noticed the "little waterfall back there" and kept on walking, thinking that couldn't possibly be our destination.

The trail did offer good views of the valley, especially of the Draper Temple, on the way back down, and is a good, easy hike for kids. That's enough to earn it a second star, but if the falls are what you're interested in, I strongly recommend the shorter trail from the top, which is more sheltered and is a prettier trail.

Not very long, but beautiful views of the valley.

This was a fun and pretty short trail. The view of the valley and the little creek are beautiful. Plus, it is not a far drive from the freeway which is nice.

Love this trail. It's a great, quick hike. A lot of variations to explore as well.

Good for kids, the ghost falls are really hide so when the ad says ghost falls stay and look carefully around you. Was and easy and fun hike with kids:)

Easy trail for kids, my 4 year old and 22 month old did it with no problem. Not much shade. View of the valley is pretty, but the trail and surrounding area isn't that great. Probably won't do it again.

This hike is definitely not kid friendly. The amount of bikers on the hike were way more than hikers. All of the bikers we crossed were super friendly though & polite but with how many there were we definitely had to be super on guard with the kids we brought along. Some places didn't have very much room to pull to the side for the passing bikers. I also wouldn't bring any kids younger than 7 years because the down hill decline on parts of the hike is pretty steep with little texture to help you walk down without slipping. Since the trail is all downhill one way & up the other it's definitely hard on kids. It was a beautiful hike & detailed well with signs but the bikers do make it less enjoyable if you are just wanting to hike.

Annabelle Parr was a Draper woman who spent sixteen long years working in and on top of the Draper Parks and Trails Committee. She may have died of pancreatic cancer, but she lived to preserve the natural beauty of Utah's wilderness. It was through her efforts that bonds were secured to allow for the purchase of the Corner Canyon area, saving it from being flattened and turned into yet another subdivision of hideous po-mo shitboxes. Instead, the network of trails you see today were developed and preserved, and more of Utah's natural bounty was allowed to flourish instead of flounder.

In addition to this, Ann was also a long-distance equestrian endurance rider, and a dear lover of children, working in the fields of adolescent counseling, child welfare, and adoption.

So, please, for the Love of God, do NOT litter here! Are you kidding me? Do you WANT to get haunted? Do you want to have an ectoplasmic tussle with a ghost-woman with that kind of saintly pedigree?! JESUS CHRIST! JUST PACK IT OUT! HOW HARD IS THAT?!

A-ha.

Sorry.

Ann's trail is definitely a versatile one. It's meant to accommodate hikers, bikers, and equestrian ga'lippers. If you're hiking, you'll want to keep your eyes open, both for people heading ass over elbows down the trail on their bike, and for horse dung minefields. Your vigilance will be rewarded, though, I assure you: waiting for you at the top is a fantastic view of the valley, above all of the smog and grit. You can rest at a bench dedicated to Ms.Parr and just take it all in.

The end of the trailhead comes when you join up with Clark's Trail. From there, you can turn around, or take Clark's back down, or explore any of the other interconnecting trails from there. Corner Canyon has quite a lot of different routes you can explore, though for my money, the circuit from Ann's Trail to Clark's Trail and then back through the Bonneville Shoreline Trail is a great circuit, taking you just over four miles to complete.

Just, uh... Be sure to mind your sun protection. There's precious little shade through Ann's Trail, so you'll want to make sure you're covered and that you're mindful of when your sunscreen needs to be reapplied. I didn't, and now I'm a lobster-person. Learn from my red-faced mistakes, and you'll have a great time on Ann's Trail.

If you're looking for a beginner's trail to do mountain biking or trail-running, or if you're in the Draper area and want a decent hike to do after work, it's hard to argue against this one. I'm sure it's what Ann would have wanted. :)

Now, when you begin your hike up Clark's, you will be presented with a fork: to go up Clark's Trail, simply go left, take the bridge, and you'll be on your way. Clark's is a gentle, easy incline all throughout, with shade at regular enough intervals that you won't have to worry about sun exposure *too* much. In addition, the trail forbids mountain bikers from traveling DOWN it, so you needn't worry about dodging someone going ass over teakettle down the trail. (Although if you see them huffing up the 10% incline behind you, I'm sure they and their shins would thank you if you allowed them to pass).

Clark's is an uncomplicated trail. You'll be at the top of it in about 45 minutes, and it won't take too much out of you. You'll know you're at the top when you see the intersection between it and Ann's Trail. Then you can head back down. All-in-all, if you're in the Draper area and looking for something to do after work, Clark's is a fantastic choice, with some decent views of the valley.

But...

If you, instead, forsake the bridge at the start of your journey and make a right, onto the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, you'll find yourself with some GREAT views of the valley, and a much more substantial hike. Follow the Bonneville Shoreline Trail until it intersects Ann's Trail by the Bike Repair Station and the Tunnel, turn left, and take Ann's Trail until it links up with Clark's and then take Clark's down. Taken together, you'll enjoy a ~4 mile circuit.

Or, hell, don't even take my advice. Corner Canyon is lousy with criss-crossing trails and sights, and they all spit you out in more or less the same place. You might find a few neat trails I totally missed! Just, uh, be sure to mind your sunscreen and be ready to dodge out of the way of the bikers. They may not be able to go down Clark', but anything else is fair game for them.

Dirt road to trail head was no problem for our mini van, just had to go slow at parts. Trail was shady most the way to the falls and easily done with our 3.5 and 5 year old. Lots of bikers so make sure to review safe trail practices and what to do when a biker comes down the trail. Temperature was ~80 and wasn't too bad with the shade trees most the way down. Great family trail.
