Ann’s Trail is a multi-use, multi-directional trail that runs from the Peakview Trailhead on the east end to a junction with the BST on the west end. Ann’s Trail can be accessed from the Potato Hill Trailhead, the Peakview Trailhead, and Vintage View Lane. Dogs are allowed on Ann’s Trail to the west and south of Potato Hill TH and are prohibited east of Potato Hill TH. This “mid-mountain” style trail is Draper’s second longest natural surface trail.
Ann's Trail was named after Draper Resident Annabelle Parr, who passed away August 2012 of pancreatic cancer. Ann was an active citizen in Draper since moving here in 1984. She worked tirelessly on trail preservation and urban trails development. She served on the Draper Parks & Trails Committee and the Draper Planning Commission for 16 years, including four years as chair. She led the “Save Corner Canyon” campaign that resulted in the community voting for a bond to preserve this pristine area. The Draper City Council named this trail for her in 2011. Ann, we will miss you and remember you as we hike the foothills.
