Coyoteville is a former settlement in Nevada County, California. It is situated at an elevation of 2,160 ft (660 m) above sea level.


On the eastern section of Lost Hill, the town of Coyoteville started in an area of gravel hills that were rich with gold. During the California Gold Rush, a tunneling method, nicknamed "coyoteing" was developed here, leading to the town's naming.

In later years, Coyoteville became the northwestern portion of Nevada City, California.
