Draper Experiences Increase in Trail Use

Draper City experienced a large increase of users on our mountain and paved trails this year. This is mostly due to COVID-19 with residents staying local and enjoying the trails in their backyard. With an increase of users, please remember to be safe and practice good trail etiquette when on our trails. 

Our most popular trail was the Orson Smith Trail to the Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge with more than 197,000 visitors, which was more than double than in 2019. Other popular trails with high visits include downhill bikers using Brookside Trailhead and bikers using the Equestrian Center Trailhead. 

Paved trails were also popular with the Porter Rockwell Trail receiving more than 112,000 users in July alone. For more info, view the charts below.
