|Chop'd Coyote or Coyote Middle
Chop'd Coyote, also known as Coyote Middle, is located north of Heber in the Riverview riding area. This 4.9 mile trail links the middle of Upper Riverview trail to the backside of the Coyote Loop. It can be done as an out-and-back if you climb 1.6 miles from the UVU Wasatch Campus trailhead to reach Upper Riverview, then head south 0.4 miles to find Coyote Middle on the uphill side. This page describes a north half-loop from the Highway 32 trailhead, and a southern half-loop from the UVU trailhead.
