    Not much of a spectator's course as far as getting to a good spot to watch.... but if I could be helidropped to one spot on the course with my beach chair, cooler, and unbrella it would be the Notch/Snotch.

    Driving up to the bottom of Hazard and hiking up a bit or down Kokopelli a bit might also be a good yet much more accessable spot.

    I was thinkin bout the "Snotch" area, shouldn't be hard to get to. Kinda worried about parking by the cattle guard. Also debating walkin up from the bottom to the "Diving Board" and finish area. Good sight lines, but a long way to carry beverages. Ya think a person could drive up Porc and park near the rim?

    You mean drive up Sand Flats road to the Porc trailhead then drive up the trail to the Castle Valley overlook? That's a pretty stout four-wheel drive trail/road but I suppose that would work if you have the right vehicle for it.

    You can't drive up Porc from the river, of course.... You could ride up it I suppose since they're not using the Porc Singletrack at the bottom for the race. Finish line is at Lunch Rock just before the singletrack starts, I think.

    Why not? Not the ST but couldn't you drive up the actual PR jeep trail?

    I didn't know the jeep trail went all the way down to the river. I thought it was a dead end where the singletrack starts.

    It goes to the right there. You are probably right though. I don't think it goes to the river. Hmmm, really no place is really easy to get to. Loop road is closed before Hazard so even driving up to Koko would be tough.

    You could drive up Sandflats to UPS I suppose, or just riding up the PR ST or the climb to the look out. None of wich are terribly easy.

    Yup- the trail comes right through camp, and it's just a little further up sandflats from the cattle guard/gate. It has an outhouse, no shelter. It is still there, camping's first come first serve I think. and UP the trail from there would be an awesome, beautiful place to hang out.. It's where UPS heads down a long steeeeep slick rock slope. Views of castleton tower from the top of this slope. There are many different lines down this section, all fun and photogenic.
