    Does every ride at Brian Head require a shuttle??

    Looking for some new rides to do in Utah. Heard Brian Head is great, but I like to earn my down hill, and it seems like a lot of shuttling to get to trails....Anyone familiar with the trail system there??

    The main shuttles rides at or near Brian Head are Dark Hollow, Bunker Creek (Right and Left Forks), and Blowhard. I know people that do Bunker as a loop, not for me though. The others are shuttles unless you want to ride back up a highway.

    Some other trails in the immediate area that aren't shuttles are Lowder Ponds and Scout Camp loop. Close by is Navajo Lake and the Virgin River Rim Trail. Not much farther away are the Red Canyon trails, Thunder Mountain, Losee, Casto and Cassidy. There are some others in the area that don't get ridden as much.

    The best Utah trail info is here: Southern Utah High Plateau Trails

    If riding up is harder than down, something is amiss.
    Shuttles are worth it, unless you are sure it's not your thing

    None of the trails in Brian Head "require" a shuttle.

    But this is America where we like to take the easy way out.
