There are two main loops that can be reached from the Corner Mountain Trailhead; Corner Mountain Loop and Camp Loop. Both of these trails have a rolling feel to them as they go up and down through the forest. Corner Mountain Loop is the longer of the two at about 2.5 miles while Camp Loop is about 1.5 miles long. There is a short spur trail off of Camp Loop which provides access to Barber Lake Road and from there you can get to Barber Lake Trail.
The rolling terrain can be a challenge for beginning cross country skiers, but fun for mountain bikers. The many picnic areas nearby and short trail distances make this a great location for family activities.
