Park & Trails Information
Draper City maintains more than 35 parks and 80+ miles of trails.  Many of the parks are available to rent for parties or events.

One of the amenities residents have named in surveys as very important to them is trails. Draper City has more than 88 miles of trails for cycling, hiking and horseback riding. The trails interconnect and can take you from town up into the foothills of the Wasatch Front. The city recently preserved more than 1,000 acres in Corner Canyon and partnered with Salt Lake County and Sandy City to set aside 2,000 acres along the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.  Many trails offer breath-taking views of the Salt Lake Valley.

    Dogs on Draper Trails
    Dogs are allowed on a leash on all Draper City trails except in critical watershed areas, which are noted on trail signs and maps.  However, if trail users disregard these rules, the city may have to place further restrictions on the trails to protect the watershed.

    Protection of Watershed.  Many of the city's trails are located in designated watershed areas.  In order to protect the quality of the water used by Draper residents, dogs are not allowed to walk through or drink from any of the streams within the designated watershed areas.  Since dogs don't use restrooms, a lot of dogs would mean a lot of dog waste in our drinking water.  Dogs and other domestic animals carry bacteria and other diseases that directly effect humans such as coliform.  These are easily transmitted when a dog's waste gets into canyon waters, and these illnesses can be deadly to humans and wild animals. The cleaner our water is at its source, the easier and less costly the treatment.

      Domestic animals (dogs and horses) are prohibited in critical watershed areas:  Ghost Falls, and Burnham trails in Corner Canyon, and all trails in the Bear Canyon area, indicated on the trail map.
    In permitted areas, domestic animals must maintain a distance of 100 feet away from all water.  Crossing is allowed on bridges only.  Dogs must be on a leash.  Bring water for your dog to drink and bags to clean up waste and pack out litter.
    Failure to obey this law is a Class B misdeameanor and a ticket and fine will be issued.  Draper City is being proactive and will be enforcing this law.
