The latest addition to Draper's Corner Canyon Trail System and officially open, is a flow trail down the south side of the mountain. Built by Gravity Logic, this trail is wide with massive berms and lots of little table tops and sections to air out on. Tons of fun, and with the newly built Maple Hollow South trail, you can easy spin back up to the top and use Eagle Crest to connect back the start.

The trail should be considered intermediate. Though it can be fairly easily rolled down, some beginners will have a tough time navigating the many berms at low speed. Additionally, there is a lot of fast traffic on this trail, so without high awareness and nominal speed you could put yourself and others at danger by hanging out to long around a blind corner or other obstacle with low visibility on the other side. Don't let this deter you from riding this excellent trail just be aware of the potential hazards, and if it's your first time, go during a slow time (i.e. not mornings or holiday weekends).

Disclaimer

Berms are big, young riders may find them difficult going slow

       Just rode the new trail today! It was SPECTACULAR! The berms were huge and the jumps were great. It was extremely loose however (as to be expected). The climb at the end of the trail leading back to was quick and mellow and I was tempted to run Vertigo again. Overall, a great trail, if Rush could get makeover like this it would be incredible.

       You're right, generally speaking it should be a green. Relative to the trails in Corner Canyon, I think it is borderline. Only from the standpoint of airing out full speed. Anyone else care to chime in on what difficulty you think this should be?

       My vote would be green, since a beginner rider would just ride it slower and have absolutely no problem

       I thought I agreed on green for this until I took two beginners on it. They do fine on Ann's trail but struggeled on vertigo. Apparently if you don't have the comfort to ride the berms with speed they are a bit more of a hazard than I expected. If you stay high on them at low speed you slide out. If you stay low then you are riding in loose sand/gravel. We had three fall downs taking it at a slow pace they felt comfortable with. The same day I saw one other adult rider go down on the top section. Perhaps this is overlooked as a difficulty factor to new riders looking for green options. That said I still think it feels like a green at moderate speeds.

       I added a disclaimer warning about this. The problem with ratings is, people that the type of rider that shuttles does a lot of downhill and this is easy. The type of rider that climbs to each run rides less downhill. This is a totally generality, but the difference is just enough to get one crowd to want to rate trails easier and the other more difficult. To be a relative rating (relative to Little Valley next door) this should probably intermediate, especially now that shuttle riders will almost exclusively ride Levitate.

       Good points Todd. What do you think about leaving the rating consistent with what the managing entity rates it? Certainly there will be trails with no such declaration. But in the event that a very proactive group like Draper Open Spaces, or Solitude ski resort(for examples) declare a trail to be a certain difficulty I don't see the harm in Trailforks following that guidance. If an advanced rider tries a trail expecting black but gets blue there is no real problem. But if a beginner is looking for green and finds blue that could be an issue.

       I totally agree with that. Although that has not stopped a few "advanced" riders from complaining that marking something expert was a waste of their time. But I agree, it is a safer to err on the side of caution.

       There aren’t lots of “tabletops” so much as there are “long” jumps or hills that you inevitably jump on at higher speeds.

       This trail feels like it'd be a blast once I gain a little more confidence. Today, I found myself reflexively slowing down too much as I approached the large berms, which required me to skid down the loose sand on the inside.

      +1 to following the management's "blue square" rating. This trail is now marked this way on the sign at the top.

      Oddly, the South Maple Hollow trail, which I rode up to get to this one, is marked blue on this site, but I don't see any reason it shouldn't be green.
