The Lupine Trail is fairly new walking trail in Draper. It has some nice tree-lined paths, a little meadow, and some beautiful city views! I’ll be describing it heading to the left and continuing around the loop clockwise, but you could easily go around either way. The trail begins at the Suncrest Mountain View Trailhead. You can see homes off to the south, but the trailhead is on the bench so you can see great city views right away.
The trail is a large loop that goes through the scrub oaks.
These photos were taken late in the year, after it had snowed, but the fall leaves hadn’t completely fallen from the trees.
Earlier the fall the leaves are more vibrant with multiple colors. this was taken mid-September.
About halfway around the loop is a little bench where you can sit and rest and look out on a meadow. Since these photos were taken in late fall, the meadow isn’t at its most beautiful!
Here they are at the end of May for comparrison.
There are actually multiple meadows. We saw deer in one, but they fled before I got a focused photo. We also saw and heard wild turkeys.
If you continue around the loop then you come to the connector to Ann’s Trail and then Edelweiss Trail (both of which are primarily mountain biking trails . If you continue around the loop you get to some beautiful views!
There are also beautiful mountain views along this trail.
This trail is fantastic to do near sunset.
Here is a detail of the trail from the Draper interactive map. It’s the yellow trail right in the middle of the map.
This trail is a footpath only, so no mountain bikes. It’s also within the Corner Canyon watershed, so dogs are not allowed.
