Most riders ride the Coyote-area trails from the UVU Trailhead. This trailhead is closest to both the beginner skills area trails (Lower Potatoes, Isengard) and the Mordor DH. It also provides rapid access to Riverview and the Coyote Loop. One mile south of the junction of Highway 40 and 32 (a couple of miles north of Heber on US 40), turn east (toward the mountain) at the UVU campus. Go to the uppermost level of parking behind the UVU buildings. Look for the duck-under and kiosk. A singletrack trail takes you uphill to Lower Riverview, Middle Earth, and the Riverview (Rivendell) Trail.
On US-40 just south of Jordanelle Reservoir, turn east at the traffic light on Highway 32 and climb 1.1 miles. When you see the second entry into the Riverview subdivision on your left, note the gravel parking area on your right. That's your spot. This trailhead is the fastest access to Riverview and the Coyote Loop, Sheep Bones and Lower Riverview and isn't far from Upper Potatoes and Middle Earth.
Two miles south of the junction of Highway 40 and 32, turn east (toward the mountain) on Coyote Lane. Just after the road crosses a canal, turn left into the parking lot. The singletrack starts at the northeast corner at the step-over, where you'll also find a repair stand and a kiosk with a trail map. The Coyote singletrack takes you uphill. After merging with the gravel road to cross the bridge, veer left onto singletrack. As you climb uphill, find your target trail (Sheep Pen, Riverview) or continue uphill on the Coyote Loop.
The Cutthroat trailhead is 4 miles east of US 40 on SR 32. On the south (uphill) side of the road, there's a strip of dirt parking along the fence with room for 8 to 10 cars. A climb-over wooden ladder is your access to the connector trail, which takes you uphill to Wile E Canyon and its associated trails or Coyote.
