Hidden Meadows Loop is a new footpath in Corner Canyon in Draper, Utah that is great for trailrunners or families.

Corner Canyon is very popular for mountain biking, so it’s nice to have footpaths for hikers too. Here is a map of all the Corner Canyon trails.

The Hidden Meadows Loop is in the bottom right corner of the map, so here is a detail. I highlighted the loop in green.

Since a little section goes off the map, here is my Alltrails map. The whole loop is about 2.1 easy/moderate miles.

Directions

Begin at the Peak View Trailhead and you can either begin next to the green pavilion on the east side of the parking lot or just across the road to the south. The picture shows where we exited and if you look over to the right you will see the east pavilion where we began. This route is extremely well signed, so you can’t get lost.

You could take the loop in either direction, but I will describe it clockwise. We began on the east side and followed the trail though the scrub oaks. Typically I hike in small groups, but occasionally a few friends will come with our kids, which turns it into a larger group.

Soon you get some great views of Draper and the valley below.

All along the trail there were lots of sphinx moths. These are harmless and fun to watch. There were also some butterflies.

A little after you will come to the first meadow. There were lots of wildflowers here!

The trail curves around and heads back into the scrub oak.

There are a few junctions, but they are so well marked.

At this section you come out of the scrub oak to another meadow. You can see homes in the distance.

Then you come back in through the oaks.

Now you are close to the end and will head towards the trailhead and can see it occasionally through the trees.
