The Riverview (or Sorenson) Trail is located on the mountainside northeast of Heber at an average altitude of 6200 feet. It's 5.2 miles in length and is best done as a 10.4 mile out-and-back. This ride will have a total 600 feet of gradual up-and-down climbing. A loop ride is possible using US-40 and Highway 32, or via the primitive dirt road just above the irrigation canal. A loop descending Coyote Lane to US-40 is 10.9 miles with 1000 vertical feet of climbing. The loop returning via the doubletrack is about the same distance (see map). A shorter loop is possible by dropping down to the dirt road via a descending trail at mile 3.3. The descending trail is 1.2 miles.

From Salt Lake, take I-80 eastbound to Silver Creek Junction (just past Park City). Go south on US-40, past the Jordanelle reservoir and descend past the dam. At the traffic light at mile 14.2 from I-80, turn left on 32 and climb 1.1 miles. When you see the second entry into Riverview on your left, note the gravel parking area on your right. That's your spot.
From Utah County, drive up Provo Canyon to Heber. At the traffic light on US-189/US-40, turn left and drive north through Heber. 4.7 miles from the intersection, turn right on Highway 32 and climb 1.1 miles to the parking area as above.
