Where to Park
The most popular parking spot for Eagle Mountain Trails seems to be Hidden Hollow Elementary School on Pony Express Parkway. We recommend avoiding the crowds and driving south a bit on Hidden Valley Parkway to park. This road starts out paved, next to the school, then turns to dirt quickly. It is is easily navigable for most vehicles and there are large open spaces to park. You’ll also have more trail options.
Eagle Mountain Trails are tucked away in a residential area—a bit removed from dining and retail. We recommend bringing food and party favors for the after-ride wind down. Traveling a bit farther off the beaten track to park will provide a bit of privacy and much better views.

Quick Ride Recommendation
For a quick ride, jump on Rockabilly, Roadrunner and Wile E Coyote for your climb, then drop on Deadwood. The views of Provo Lake and the Wasatch Range are great from the top of Wile E Coyote. Deadwood is a bit bumpy, but I rode it on my no-suspension fattie and had a blast whipping thru the dead junipers.
It’s a Wrap
Wasatch Rider’s goal is not to provide trail reviews but, instead, provide information and tips that will make your ride event more enjoyable. For specific trail pre-ride planning, we recommend utahmountainbiking.com to review Eagle Mountain Trails. For on-trail guidance, we recommend the trailforks app for iPhone and Android phones.
