The gate leading to Corner Canyon Rd was locked 3 miles from the trailhead, so we tried another road to access it, but there were no parking signs EVERYWHERE so we ended up hiking it from the end of the trail back (parked E Vintage View Ln). Took us 4 hours to do the full 12 miles with a few breaks; definitely start early, it was 94 degrees when we ended just before noon. Bring lots of water; I finished off my 3-liter hydropack. The elevation is so gradual, felt like a pretty flat hike except for the west end of the trail. Definitely listen and watch for bikes because they come through fast and you only have a couple of seconds to get off to the side of the trail, and many places don't have a lot of room on the side of the trail. Only one small patch of mud near a stream and it was dry by the time we came back through. Good hike to train for distance but not so much for difficulty or altitude; only a couple of places that got my heart rate up. Saw a few snakes (smooth greensnakes, I think?) off the side of the trail and a rabbit on the trail. Didn't notice very many bugs.

We did Ann’s connecting you Lupine Trail which is not on here and that wraps around and connects back to Ann’s. Very beautiful and perfectly groomed trails!

Busy on a Saturday with mostly bikes and a few runners. Trail is in perfect shape with no snow now. There was snow 2 weeks ago. Out and back is perfect. I would recommend starting at the bottom though for a fun downhill second half. Get out here and get some fresh air.

Started at potato hill. The north/west facing trail was nearly all snow and ice. South/east facing trail had much less snow and ice. My husband made it fine without spikes. I would have preferred some better traction on the northern half. Wonderful views and fun trail. Will definitely go back closer to the end of snow melt.

Ann’s is one of my favorite trails to run, and although you will be sharing with some bikes it’s a great area to explore. I like to come up Bonneville Shoreline Trail from Steep Mountain Park and then connect to Maple Hollow for some great views, or the section that goes through Little Valley is nice. Potato Hill to Peakview Trailhead is also a great section. You can do all or part, connect to many different trails along the way, and there are restrooms and water at Potato Hill Trailhead (about halfway) if you follow the map as outlined here. Ann’s has sections that aren’t very shaded but for the most part you are in taller scrub oak and it feels foresty and partially shaded. No particular destination but a nice little journey.

This trail is very easily accessible right in the Draper / Suncrest area. Its a nice easy trail for the first hour. Not sure about what comes next as I have not been in further than an hour. It has nice views, lots of shade and is not difficult. Its narrow though and the downside is that you get tons of mountain bike traffic. They come through fast and with very little warning so you only have literally 2 or 3 seconds to hear, react and get off the trail. And there is often very little room to do so. I would not take kids on this trail due to the bike traffic. But its worth the visit if you are looking for a nearby easily accessed hike to fill in a couple of hours.

I rode this trail starting from the Potato Hill Trailhead first the southern section and then the northern section. Nice view of the valley below especially with the lights start coming on. The trail is well used and signed. Monday night is a great time to ride because it's almost empty of riders and hikers

This was a nice trail. I did about 6 miles from the trailhead. Once you get to the second trailhead it spiders off into multiple trails to finish which is maybe 4.5 miles in, but it’s well marked. I took the lone peak (I think if I remembered correctly) and got about a mile in. There is a dirt service vehicle road and I would recommend climbing the 50 feet or so to get a nice view of the valley and mountains and have lunch. It’s a nice trail but there are a lot of mountain bikers so be cautious if your on foot.

TICS!! I was actually enjoying this trail: nice grade, clean (not too rocky), shady, good views, then stopped for a break and found three (dog) tics on my right ankle/shoe. I took the street back to my car. Context: I'm a little paranoid about biting bugs. I've hiked, biked, and motorcycled the Wasatch and Uintahs for nearly 20 years and can't remember seeing more than one or two tics. Maybe I just don't check enough, but this is a deal breaker; there are plenty of other trails. At the least, check, use a spray, and/or burn clothing after.

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!

Not very long, but beautiful views of the valley.

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. :)

Nice easy hike with kids. Trail is in good condition. You need to keep an ear out for people on mountain bikes. Beautiful views and flowers/trees.

This is primarily a mountain bikers paradise so be prepared to step to the side plenty. I did four miles out and back but not sure there is a really stopping point in this trail. Nice views of the valley. Some good shade in spots and mild inclines.

Beautiful views of the valley but I would say that this trail is primarily a biking trail and not so good for hikers. We were there on a Saturday and had to get out of the way for bikers many times. So make sure you listen for them coming. We saw about three hikers and probably 25+ bikers.
